STAR RIDGE STABLES, LLC
STELLA PRESCOTT AND STEPHEN PRESCOTT
HARDEEVILLE, SC 29927
There are days when Stella Prescott wishes she hadn’t taken on the project of building a new stable facility in South Carolina. Trying to operate a riding school and stable operations at the same time of getting paddocks and pastures up to her standards may have been just too much to handle, but it is done and the end result is one of the finest riding and boarding facilities in the Southeast. There have been some pitfalls along the way. Convincing some of her boarders to continue to use her facilities that are a little further off island has been a challenge. The initial stable population dropped to levels Stella was not prepared to accept was difficult but with aggressive marketing and price reductions on boarding the stables are starting to fill up again.
The pastures, paddocks and riding rings are first class. Stella’s student population has continued at the same pace as the previous location. This is a testament to the fact that Stella Prescott is one of the best riding instructors in dressage and jumping in the nation.
The United States Olympic Committee thought so and so do her students. The result is Star Ridge Stables just placed one of their students in the Nationals Finals in Florida. Giving her the national recognition she has worked so hard to develop.
