Rising Star Ranch Conducts Stallion Fee Auction to Benefit Spencer Benedict Stables



In December of 2016, our friends Spencer and Carrie Benedict have suffered all horsemen’s greatest fear. A toxin from a yet to be determined source was ingested by many of the horses stabled at their facility. Numerous horses have died and others still recovering. 

Rising Star Ranch has been approached by many well meaning individuals on donating stallion fees to benefit the relief effort for Carrie and Spencer. As this tragedy could have happened to any of us, Rising Star felt they should go further and conduct their own with all the proceeds being sent to F.A.S.T and distributed to Carrie and Spencer Benedict. 

Click here to see the current 10 stallions available for bidders. Rising Star did not put a Buy It Now price only due to the fact they didn’t want to limit bidders on what they wanted to donate. This auction will run to 1 PM on January 31st. So please Bid High and Bid Often. All proceeds will be going to the Spencer Benedict Stables relief effort.
