Stable Memories

Independent and Assisted Living/ Memory Care Program

Blazing Star Stables partners with senior living communities to provide equine assisted activities to address the unique needs of our county’s senior citizens who may or may not be in residential care, rehab facilities, or other long-term care settings. Equine assisted activities can help seniors reconnect with memories, improve fine motor function and provides a fun new opportunity for social interaction!
