                        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. When visiting Morning Star Acres you will have the opportunity to come together with them in their journeys and meet them personally.  Here are some of the people you will meet when you visit.
