Rising Above Equine is gearing up for another unique Cowboy Market Days!  This will be our

3rd Annual COWBOY CHRISTMAS Market Days!  

(We also host a Spring Cowboy Market Days in late April.)


At RISING ABOVE EQUINE we are all about supporting our community and the vendors are part of our surrounding communities.  Our vendors offer a selection of quality and one-of-a-kind products at prices you can’t compare. This is our 5th market days that we have given vendors the chance to set up shop right here in our barns!   Our Cowboy Market Days offer a unique and fun setting for vendors and attendees, alike.   All of our vendors (usually 40-50) offer residents in the greater Salado area the chance to find all the unique products they seek for their holiday shopping.  

Our Market Days are never just vendors, though!  Expect to find food trucks, demonstrations, live music, and all sorts of fun things for the family.

NEW this year will be the GOAT ROPING FUNDRAISER to support the CENTRAL TEXAS EQUINE RESCUE!

Rising Above Equine is so excited to announce that we have recently joined forces with the CENTEX EQUINE RESCUE & REHAB to save otherwise disadvantaged or "thrown away" performance horses.  (Please visit CenTex Equine Rescue's Facebook page at to hear more about their story and goals.)  Saving horses less fortunate than our own has always been a priority here at Rising Above.  This 501c3 rescue designation just makes it all official.  We would do it without extra help, but the extra help would mean that we could help more than just a few.  We never take on more than a couple (or eight) at a time.  We really feel that we do our best work when the numbers are low and we can do everything in our power to get these horses back to good health and an active lifestyle and then placed in a new forever home that is just right for them.

Unfortunately, helping a horse get back to itself and to be healthy again takes money.  Some of these rescues need expensive medical treatments and therapies.  To help provide funds for the care and rehabilitation of these rescued performance horses, Rising Above Equine is hosting a BENEFIT CONCERT on Friday, December 9th from 6-10pm called "THE KICK OFF PARTY" that will benefit the CenTex Equine Rescue & Rehab.  Attendees of this dinner will have the chance to enjoy our facility at it's best...when the sun is setting and the temperature is cool.  This will be a relaxed dinner with entertainment throughout the evening. We will have a local favorite, Ryan Wright, kicking off the concert and welcoming everyone in from 6:30-7:45pm and then the headliners will close out the evening.   We will be showcasing 2019 Texas Country Music Association's "Entertainer of the Year", CURTIS GRIMES, along with newcomer, CLAY AERY!  We will be having a big Cowboy-style meal with Pulled Pork and all the fixins (provided by some generous givers in the community).

Anyone attending the fundraising dinner will have access to EARLY BIRD SHOPPING in the vendor areas during the event before the vendor areas open for the public on Saturday.  There will also be additional fundraising opportunities in the form of a Raffles (TBA), a Wine Wall, Goat Roping, Pancakes for Ponies, The Reindeer Games, and other fun activities throughout the night and the weekend!  We hope you and your friends can join us in support of this cause.  All of these activities are  in conjunction with our COWBOY CHRISTMAS MARKET DAYS!


Your small change can make a huge change in the lives of these horses.
