Lutherlyn Equestrian Center

The Lutherlyn Equestrian Center strives to provide children/people with a safe and positive learning experience. We want them to leave our facility feeling confident about the experience they had here. Many of our horses have spent their lives teaching children the joy of riding.

Our facilities include a bank barn and a 20 shed row style barn with 10x10 box stalls, a heated tack room, sand 85x150 indoor arena, a stadium jumping field, a cross country course of Intro-Novice, and miles and miles of beautiful trails.

We are excited to offer Therapeutic Riding lessons with PATH Certified Instructors Katey Simons and Teresa Davis. Check out the Therapeutic Riding page to learn more.

Stables News

  • Unfortunately we are going to need to cancel our Mini Trial event scheduled for September 13. Our indoor arena construction has conflicted with the event. We look forward to hosting again next year. We will have a beautiful 85 x 150 gable style building from Clearspan to host our dressage in. The addition of this building is a great addition to our programming. Please be sure to follow our progress. We thank you all for your support of our programs and look forward to next year.

  • Lutherlyn is raising money to construct an indoor riding arena to expand the availability and reach of our Equestrian Program. This Clear Span construction building will be located within the stables program area near the barn. Building this arena is an important stride in making the Equestrian Program a year-round operation.

    Our arena will be 8,500 square feet. In order to track our progress, we will be counting how many square feet have been donated. Each square foot needs only a $13 donation. For example, you can donate 4 square feet through your donation of $50 or 38 square feet for $500.

    We have received a total of $73,346 (5,642 square feet) so far! That means we are only $36,654 away from our $110,000 goal. Please make a donation today and sponsor your squares today!

  • The moment we have been waiting for has finally arrived! We plan to have an indoor riding arena for fall of 2015!!! It has been a dream of for the Stables program for a long time and we really need your help to make this dream come true. Your donation will make a difference in the lives of our campers, students and horses! Your efforts will help us continue to reach out and share the magical world of horses with more people. We are so excited for the impact it will bring to our programming. Please share with everyone you know, and encourage your friends to donate in this grassroots effort to fund this building. We have $30,000 that has already been donated to the project -- help our students ride through the seasons!! Every little bit helps!!!

  • Come sell, trade, or buy at the Tack Swap going on during the Judged Pleasure Trail Ride on Sunday October 5 from 11am-4pm. 10ft. spaces are available for $15 (or $10 if you register by 9/26/2014).
