ADOPT A HORSE DURING COVID-19

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, fee, bedding, farrier and veterinary care.

In order to ensure the health and well-being of our students, clients and staff, the LEC has been forced to make the extremely difficult decision to suspend our lessons until further notice, which leaves our beloved lesson horses without a job. 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.

This is where our Adopt A Lesson Horse program comes into play. All Sponsorships will go to help support the everyday care of our wonderful horses in this time of need.

  • $49.95 – helps pay for one lesson horse for ½ week
  • $125 – helps pay for one lesson horse for 1 week
  • $250 – helps pay for one lesson horse for 2 weeks
  • $500 – helps pay for one lesson horse for month

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 go back to work and have a barn full of riders and fun again!

These Lesson Horses are looking for their own Sponsor!

Barclay, Raleigh, Moonshine, Mr. Ed, Ziggy, Willow, Daisy, Hazel, Frank, Pie, Mystery, Roxy, Flash, Rowdy, Southern, Taz, Troubadour, Shady, Lucy, Baron, Webster, Domino, JJ, Tosk, Flynn, Ollie and Eddie!

DAISY (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU HANNA L.
THANK YOU DANIELLE W. 

DAISY is a new face who is fitting into the lesson program and quickly becoming a FAV with our Small Fry riders.  She loves to Trot!

MR. ED (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU CATIE B.

MR ED is the icon of the LEC lesson program.  Although is he is getting on in years, he is known for teaching generations of Small Fry riders how to post.  He doesn’t really like pony parties (he gets a little too exuberant!), but he never misses a chance to get dressed up for Pony Princess Camp!

ROWDY (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU SARA F.
THANK YOU WILLIAM C.
THANK YOU KAYDEN P.

ROWDY is simply the best!  You name it and Rowdy can do it, even thought at his advanced years he has decided cantering simply isn’t for him anymore!
He packs the little ones and the bigger ones.  He is also super reliable for the littlest rider at the academy shows!

SOUTHERN (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU BECKY & MAKAYLA F.

 

SOUTHERN is simply a funny guy to be around!  He comes out all lazy and like I can’t do this, it is too hard!  And then about half way through his lesson—he becomes all show horse!! You better pay attention!  He also has a very special way to enter the show ring!!

WEBSTER (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU HANNA L.
THANK YOU ADDISON F.
THANK YOU KAYDEN P.

WEBSTER tries his very best to be a good beginner horse.  But sometimes, he just can’t hold in his pony behavior!
He gives a million riding lessons, and he’s much better when following his friends on the Pony Train!

BARCLAY (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU ELENA M.

BARCLAY is probably our oldest LEC resident.  He had taught 100’s of people their first riding lesson.  He is an Arabian, probably between 25-30 years old.  He is also known for loving to have his head rubbed on.

RALEIGH (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU NINA C.

RALEIGH has a past career as a five-gaited, Reserve World’s Champion title to his name.  But he is best known for being the greatest horse to learn to canter on every!  And his very bestie is Barclay!

MOONSHINE (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU BECKY & MAKAYLA F.
THANK YOU LILLY M.

MOONSHINE is a new guy, just came last spring.  He is known for his great color and awesome canter.  He is only five years old and has many lessons to look forward too!

ZIGGY

ZIGGY is the very best first time pony for Small Fry rider.  His favorite speed is the stand still or very slow walk!  No crying, no screaming or hysteria has ever fazed Ziggy.  As long as you want to go slow, he’s your guy!

WILLOW (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU GRACE S.
THANK YOU ASHLEY R.

WILLOW is another long term LEC resident.  He is known for his sense of humor.  His best trick is to shake off his bridle at the worst times!  Heading straight down a mountain trail or cantering top speed during a drill team performance!

HAZEL (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU HAYDEN O’ CONNELL.

HAZEL came with Daisy last summer, just in time for Pony Princess Camp.  She is a Pony of the Americas, which means she is very colorful and looks like a mini Appaloosa!

FRANK (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU WILLIAM C.

FRANK is quite the character.  You never really know what to do with Frank, he came in with another horse a client had bought.  The trainer wasn’t using him so he gave him to Ms Betsy!  He likes to trot super fast, and does drive really great!  And he usually finds himself on a drill team or two!

PIE (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU TALIA DISNEY

PIE is an all around useful girl, except for one trick!  She is probably one of the most difficult horses in the country to catch when shes in the field.  Whew, she’ll make you run around!!!

MYSTERY (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU HAYDEN O’ CONNELL.

MYSTERY is a tough cookie, and she has become one our program’s very favorites!  She has a quick, fast trot.  She loves Drill Team and Trail Riding!

ROXY (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU LESLIE L.

ROXY can be a hard one to love!  She really makes you ride and pay attention, she takes no nonsense!  But she did make a few victory passes last year!

FLASH (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU SARA F.

FLASH just recently returned to the LEC lesson string!  He has lots of white legs and a spot on his belly, he’s hard to miss! And he has all the equitation work-outs memorized!

TAZ (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU MAKAYLA AND BECKY FRYE

TAZ is a gorgeous paint horse, and he is huge, and can carry the largest of riders!  He is another great one to practice your canter on!  You can’t miss Taz with his white tail flagging in the air!

TOSK (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU ELISE M.
THANK YOU DEE D.
THANK YOU LAYLA P.
THANK YOU JULIANA D.
THANK YOU MARY ANN E.

TOSK is unforgettable mainly because he only has one eye!  Several years ago he lost his eye to an eye infection.  But he doesn’t let that stop him!  He is a great lesson horse and also loves shows and drill team!

SHADY (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU STEPHANIE W.
THANK YOU MARGIE L.

 

SHADY certainly has a way he likes things to be done!  If you follow his rules, you will probably enjoy the best canter you will ever ride!  He is gorgeous and has been to many, many Academy shows!

LUCY (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU STEPHANIE W.
THANK YOU THERESA H. 

 

LUCY probably has the best ears in the barn!  She really only likes to trot, but will canter for our stronger riders!  She goes to each and every Academy show we ever attend!  And almost always comes home with several blue ribbons!

TROUBADOR (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU MARY ANN E.
THANK YOU KARLY K.
THANK YOU LEXI R.

 

TROUBADOR is often the first horse a rider may show in the Academy classes.  He can be a little cranky in the stall, and has a special way to go in and out of his stall!  But he has is so big and handsome!

DOMINO (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU TALIA D.

DOMINO might be our most versatile guy.  He can give little Small Fry lessons, beginning canter lessons, Drill Team and Bareback lessons.  He doesn’t really love trail riding, but he has gotten a lot better.  Definitely don’t find yourself in the lead in a group lesson, he is a follower!

BARON (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU HAYDEN O’CONNELL

 

BARON is such a cutie!  And you can’t miss him, because he wears a special wrap during his riding lessons to protect his face!  He is quite showy and loves to go, he is a good horse for a rider to feel a show horse!

JJ (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU TERESA H.

JJ is totally the best for our adult riders.  He has a true following with our Adult riders!  He has the best canter in the world, and simply loves the LEC ladies!

FLYNN (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU EVA S.
THANK YOU ANNABEL N.

FLYNN is our youngest lesson horse, and he is just earning how to be a lesson horse.  If you are lucky enough to get to take a lesson on him, you will get to practice all those skills you have been perfecting.  He has a lot of personality in the stall.

OLLIE (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU ANN AND JENNA P.

OLLIE is on loan for the summer from William Woods University in Missouri.  We have had him come stay with us the last few summers and really enjoyed him.  He is awesome!  He does bareback lessons, trail riding lessons, drill team lessons—you name and Ollie is the man!

EDDIE (ADOPTED)

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
THANK YOU KAITLYNN AND KIMBERLY P.

 

EDDIE is also on loan from WWU for the summer.  And you can’t miss him since he is a golden palomino.  He has a spunky little personality, and makes you pay attention when you ride him!!!
