“Sharon is dedicated to helping you achieve your goals and improve the partnership with your horse. Whether that means working on the basics with an emphasis on connection and impulsion, or perfecting your show-ready position; Sharon can help you get there.

She’s willing to talk about the whole horse; nutrition, health, and behavior to help you succeed overall.” — Meaghan M., Client

“It is my privilege to work closely with Sharon Beedle of Five Star Equestrian Sport LLC. Her knowledge of the horse industry — specifically the hunter, jumper, and equitation disciplines — on not only a local level, but also the national and international levels, makes her a discerning businesswoman and judicious equestrian. She is a patient teacher and treats everyone with respect, kindness, and honesty. Her programs challenge horse and rider to be keen and athletic, with measurable progression from week to week; yet she balances ambitious goals and aspirations with an unwavering sense of responsibility to always ensure that horse and rider are safe and confident. Five Star is dedicated to teaching correct principles from the ground and under saddle, which is why I have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending these programs to my clients, family, friends, and anyone interested in exploring the competitive aspects of hunter, jumper, and equitation arenas. As a professional peer, I especially appreciate Sharon’s commitment to being a productive member of a barn atmosphere. Her clients learn the value of being good citizens to the facility, from keeping the tack room clean-and-tidy to returning jump standards and poles to desired configurations after schooling, and consequently reap the rewards of the strong community of equestrians who help and support each other. I hope to be cheering for the Five Star show team for many more years to come!” — Katie W., Owner, Kayenta Equestrian

“Sharon is absolutely amazing! I found her when I was looking for someone to help me relearn the basics and she has done all that and more. She is knowledgeable but also listens to what is going on with me and my horse. Lessons are tailored to what the rider and horse needs and she’s incredibly flexible with content. I have never felt worried about asking to go over something specific or embarrassed to ask a “stupid question.” On the ground, Sharon always has advice for anything health and behavior related that might come up with any and all types of horses from my 27 year old thoroughbred gelding to my newest project mare.”  – Heather O., Client
