Black Star Sport Horses
I love visiting new places, especially when it involves exploring close to home. A couple of weeks ago, I was able to attend a Black Star Sport Horses dressage event and it was a blast, not to mention totally instagrammable! Aren't these pics adorable? The horse did all the work;) Nick took most of them, but Katie-Rose of The Rose Table, took the ones of me and Nick. Thanks, Katie-Rose!
Anyway, Black Star Sport Horses is unlike any other of its kind. Located in Rockwall, its 255 acre farm is not that far from Dallas. Trust me, it's worth the 30 minute drive;) Fun Fact, Nick and I are actually getting married in Rockwall! Black Star's arena is huge and can actually be broken into two arenas. The barns aren't too shabby either! They have 2 that any horse would be lucky to stay in! I think my favorite part about them was walking through and seeing all of the different personalities! When we were there, there were 2 babies that were roughly the same age, but SO different. There was also a mare, almost ready to foal out! I love that like other animals, horses have their own characteristics and Black Star lets them develop and be themselves, in such an amazing environment.
If you've read my fashion posts before, you know I go on and on about versatility and how much I appreciate it. Well, let me tell ya... Black Star is the queen of it! They host events, competitions, lessons, and even birthday parties. Of course if none of that is up your alley, you can also use them to train your horse, as their workers are top notch.
This fall, they will host their annual carriage race and I can't wait to go back for it! If you're in the DFW area and can swing it, I would try to come. You just can't beat a good, Texas afternoon.
Do you like horses? Do you have something similar where you live?
