Stars & Stirrups

We offer

free lessons for


first responders.

A Program for Our Heroes

Stars & Stirrups is a non-profit program that partners with Texas Equine Education & Horsemanship to provide horsemanship lessons to Veterans and First Responders. 

No one knows what it's like to be a veteran or a first responder unless you are one. Texas Equine believes in supporting our heroes. We call them STARS because they shine bright among us as they protect and serve our country, so we want to do our best to serve our STARS in return. 


Horsemanship Lessons

The Stars & Stirrups program includes one free horsemanship lesson per week. Each lesson is one hour and can be in a private or group setting. Horsemanship lessons include ground work, riding, horse care and safety. Lessons can benefit life skills such as confidence, commutation skills and energy regulation. Additional lessons may be scheduled with Texas Equine directly.  In order to keep our wonderful lesson horses safe and happy, we have a weight limit of 200 lbs. We offer horsemanship lessons on the ground such as showmanship, free lunging, lunging and ground driving to all interested clients.

If you would like to start riding sooner, please reach out to Texas Equine to schedule a Private Lesson.  And if you are a business owner who would like to support Stars & Stirrups, please CONTACT US & let us know!
