LEC offers riding lessons, boarding, training, riding camps, horse sales, clinics, horse shows, and pony parties, as well as facility rental for events such as group meetings and corporate events.  LEC is the largest riding program in the greater Louisville area.  From the first-time rider and general horse enthusiast to the avid competitor, the Louisville Equine Center offers an equine experience like no other.


Hey LEC Fans! It is sooooo quiet out at the LEC! It’s super busy though! We are super busy exercising and working the training horses, but getting all the lesson horses exercised as well! We want those lesson horses ready and on their toes—so everyone can be ready to Get Back In the Saddle again!!

I want to just take the time to THANK everyone who has been helping with our ADOPT A LESSON HORSE program. With no lessons, shows or camps right now, the expense to keep our beloved lesson horses happy and fed is enormous. And I know right now things are very challenging, and I and the lesson horses thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Be sure to check out our new program SHOW US WHAT YOU’VE GOT! This will be a lot of fun! Get up off the couch and practice, get some critique from me and then do a second video of your work-out—and Show Us What You’ve Got! Yep, you will ride your own horse (your two legs) and perform a work-out in your back yard, family room or wherever you have space! Creativity is a plus! And prizes will be given out for the best performances. Also your video might make it on Betsy’s daily video log!!



Weird – That’s the best word for the state of the Louisville Equestrian Center right now! Annually, early Spring is one our busiest times at the LEC—end of the Winter Tournament season, start of the new horse show season, first time show competitors, getting campers registered—everything prepped and planned for our busiest season—the Summer!

But then it all stopped! Completely out of everyone’s control, the virus has changed everyday life as we know it. And for everyone in Kentucky who’s been tuning in each day to our Governor Beshear, “We will get through this.”

We will all be Back in the Saddle! We will all be at the shows hugging and supporting our friends! And we will appreciate it all, a whole lot more!

Back at the LEC, everyday life continues on with horse being trained and exercised daily. Our suppliers of feed, hay and shavings are all on schedule and know the importance of keeping everything running smoothly! So no worries here at the stable.

Anyone who has been to the LEC knows how much we all love and appreciate our lesson horses. They are the backbone of our riding program. The funds received from the hundreds of lessons our horses teach every week goes to their daily care, feed, bedding and farrier and veterinary care. With all of our activities closed for the moment, it is important to note, that our Lesson Horses are currently unemployed. During this time, they need your support so that we can be sure you and your children can return to the caliber program you have come to know and love here at the LEC. Be sure to check out our ADOPT A LESSON HORSE PROGRAM. All Sponsorships will go to help the support the everyday care of our wonderful horses in this time of need.

We understand that these are uncertain times for all and with the support of those who love us the most look forward to returning to normal in the hopeful near future. We can’t wait for our lesson horses to be able to go back to work and have a barnful of kids and riders again!

We all miss you very much! And the barn is WAY TOO QUIET! We still hope to have Summer plans put into action, after everything has been put on pause. And be sure to check out the LEC’s FaceBook page with daily barn updates and visits from our favorite horses! Stay Well!
