Welcome

Rising Star Riders is located in the beautiful mountains of Tehachapi, California.

Rising Star Riders, RSR, is an organization dedicated to serving the needs of children and adults with physical and/or emotional challenges.

We offer horseback riding, therapeutic horseback riding, horse management lessons, and mental health service. Our instructors are Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructors through PATH International and we work directly with licensed mental health professionals. We offer weekly and bi-weekly lessons and a camp each summer as well as programs tailored to specific groups (i.e. Veterans, trauma survivors, foster youth, etc.).  Our organization relies on the assistance from dedicated volunteers in our community.  Sponsorship and  fundraiser’s support our organization financially.
