Tri-Star Farm offers a wide range of boarding and training options and riding lessons for all levels of riders. In operation in the Round Rock/Austin metro area since 2003, also close to Pflugerville, Taylor and Elgin. Tri-Star Farm is managed by Kathy Ellerbeck. Ms. Ellerbeck, from here in Austin, is a lifelong rider. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Equine Sciences from William Woods University in 1999. At TriStar Farm, our mission is to bring our love for horses into the hearts of both new and developing riders, to help grow a fresh and insatiable hunger for the equine arts in riders, and to encourage each rider to independence and balance. Our focus is not on rider enjoyment alone. We work to instill the foundational elements of Harmony, Function and Form in the rider’s instinct, so that the rider can grow independently of the trainer and in perfect harmony with the horse. At Tri-Star Farm, we believe that the horse is a reflection of those qualities that we wish to develop in our own selves: strength, grace, beauty, and empathy, and we believe that horses should be treated with the respect that such qualities invoke. Our horses are allowed to be horses.
