We'll be working together to bring a new lineup of programs to the Columbus area for 2019.  Rising Star Ranch has tremendous potential as a versatile working facility, and people are genuinely welcoming and supportive.  We are truly excited about our new connection!

If you'd like to come out for a visit, please call for an appointment to make sure that someone is available to show you around and answer questions.
