Santa Claus at Black Star Sport Horse

Santa Claus will be in attendance at Black Star Sport Horse’s freestyle showdown event benefitting Patriot PAWS next Saturday.

A local horse dressage and training facility will host a special event to benefit an organization that aims to provide disabled veterans with service dogs.

Black Star Sport Horses will host a Freestyle Showdown event on Dec. 14 to benefit Patriot PAWS. A dressage demonstration will take place first, followed by the showdown, which will feature horses “dancing” to music.

Santa Claus will also be in attendance from noon to 1:30 p.m. during the event.

There is no cost to attend, but patrons can purchase a BBQ lunch as well as other concessions. There will be farm tours, a silent auction and a raffle, with all proceeds going toward Patriot PAWS.

“We are a military family and a family of dog lovers. We are proud to support this cause,” said Black Star Sport Horses owner and head trainer Lisa Blackmon in a press release.

The special benefit show will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Dec. 14. Black Star Sport Horses is located at 5565 FM 549 in Rockwall.
