Who is Morning Star Acres ?
The people of Morning Star Acres are a group of individuals who work hard in educating the public that Standardbreds can be retrained and have a new career in life after they retire. Most of these horses end up going for slaughter as some owners feel they are not worthy or the expense to re-home them is a burden to them.The team of Morning Star Acres consists of a variety of people who make the Standardbred a highly re-trainable horse in many disciplines and are horse and no horse owners with a goal set to re-home as many horses as possible into new homes.
