Rising Star Stables, LLC is a partnership between Laura Moore and Stella O’Donnell. They
met when Stella provided riding lessons to Laura and two of her granddaughters, and their
shared passion for everything equine forged a strong bond between them. Their original
collaboration of buying a horse together soon grew to the creation of a full service equine
facility, a life-long dream for them both. Their diverse backgrounds and skills combine to
form a perfect partnership, and the result - Rising Star Stables - creates a new benchmark
for a state-of-the-art equine facility with the soul of a backyard barn.

Laura Moore
Laura recently retired from a successful
corporate career to pursue her lifelong
dream of working with horses. She spent
her youth in Western New York, riding and
showing Hunt Seat during the school year
and managing an overnight camp riding
program during the summer. She brings her
deep business experience and customer
satisfaction expertise to Rising Star
Stables’ management, and the passion for
horses she shares with Stella and our
students and boarders. Laura lives in
Carver, less than a half-mile from the
stables, with her husband, Brian. The
demands of family and career put the
dream on hold for years, but she is
now living it full-time!
