Rising Star Equestrian Center is located at the former site of Yonahlossee Stable, which for generations was one of the high country’s best places for horse riding and education. Eventually Yonahlossee fell into private ownership and languished into distant memory.
It came up for auction in 2017, and the opportunity to rebuild Boone’s legacy of horsemanship was too good of a chance to pass up for Dennis and Dawn Muse. The facilities’ rich history and vast 18-acre pasture, its trail systems and views were too much to pass up.
Our mission now is to return the equestrian center to its place as the premier riding, training, boarding and instructional facility in the High Country.
