Five Star Hunters has been a partner barn with Cheryl & Co since the program was started. The Molinari girls have grown up with Cheryl & Co and they are truly family; we have been together thru good times and struggles and we hope they feel that we have supported them as much as they have supported us. To all of the families of Five Star that have come and gone we thank you and have loved watching your riders grow.
Thank you, Elle.

"The Wills Park Equestrian Center has been a vital part of the Atlanta horse community, dating back to the 70s. It provided me the opportunity to compete throughout my pony years and started my equitation path. I’m so thankful for Wills Park being in my “backyard.” It provided great exposure to learn and begin to understand the equestrian sport. It allowed me to develop relationships that put me on my current journey in the Equitation, Hunter and Jumper rings today. This facility provides countless experiences and needs to continue for many other aspiring junior and amateur riders! I will always be so thankful for all the memories I made there! I did my first cross rail classes there, and I would get a snow cone as soon as I was done. I always loved hanging out on the weekends for hours with my friends when I was done showing.
The Wills Park Equestrian Foundation was created to promote access to the life changing benefits of the equestrian experience to help grow equestrian athletes of all ages, incomes, and abilities. They accomplish this by partnering with the city of Alpharetta to revitalize the Wills Park Equestrian Center. The city of Alpharetta matches all monetary contributions dollar for dollar The redevelopment of the Wills Park Equestrian Center has begun! The first ring is completed (with GGT footing) and in use. Over the next few weeks, the Main Hunter Ring will be redone with new fencing and new GGT footing.
In support of the foundation and redevelopment of Wills Park Equestrian Center, I will be donating my 2023 World Equestrian Center (WEC) Hunter Derby wins (prize money). I have recently donated $13,500 from my wins during WEC Winter Spectacular VIII, WEC Winter Spectacular IX and Winter Spectacular X. As a result of this donation, the city of Alpharetta will be adding another $13,500 to the redevelopment fund. Please help me in supporting the Wills Park Equestrian Center redevelopment!"
