Black Star Sport Horses
Touting bronze, silver, and gold medals for her stellar performances in United States Dressage Federation competitions, head trainer and fourth-generation equestrian Lisa Blackmon saddles up alongside students at Black Star Sport Horses' 255-acre facility. During an 18-year trot across the barnyards of Europe, Blackmon focused on international sport horses and trained with top Dressage Masters Harry Bolt and Conrad Schumacher. Her equestrian knowledge permeates the training barn's 50 stalls, putting at ease steeds such as Saint Simon, winner of 3 USEF national titles, and imported gelding Irnas, whose credits include several Grand Prix championships and a trophy case of tail-whipped flies. In addition, the facility boasts a 180'x300' indoor arena with cushioned footing and scenic trails that stretch across fields of tall grass
