Star is loved far and wide. She was rescued when she was two from a terrible situation and she quickly learned how great life could be when it involved loving students. She has taken riders from the Mini-Short Stirrup division through the Large Pony Hunter division in both local and rated horse shows, and has done the equivalent for many IHSA riders. A Lafayette student created an Instagram tribute thanking her for many great performances including a win that helped her to qualify for Regionals. Coaches feel confident when their riders draw Star, especially the ones new to IHSA competition. She is now 20 years old and has participated in IHSA competition for almost 15 years!
