Lutherlyn Equestrian Center

Lutherlyn's Equestrian Program began in the 1970's when summer campers enjoyed pony and trail rides.  In those early years, Lutherlyn kept a small number of horses and ponies for the summer.  Over time, the "Stables" program has grown to include a broad array of programs and events.  A barn formerly used for cattle was updated, an additional row-style barn was constructed, and now we are home to a herd typically comprised of twenty to twenty-five horses and ponies.  In 2016 the completion of a beautiful indoor riding arena made it possible for programs to be held during each and every month of the year regardless of the weather, and the program became known as the Lutherlyn Equestrian Center (LEC).  

Recent additions have included a Ladies' Day program and new Horse Day Camps during the summer of 2018.  We are excited for the future of the LEC as it continues to offer new and exciting programs in the coming years. 

As a part of Lutherlyn's ministry, the LEC strives to provide all people, regardless of age or ability, with a safe and positive learning experience where they feel accepted and can be challenged to achieve personal growth.  We are blessed with many gentle horses who have spent their lives teaching children the joy of riding and horsemanship. 

Our facilities include a bank barn, 20 shed row-style barn, 85' x 150' indoor riding arena (sand footing), grass outdoor arena, heated tack room, stadium jumping field, and cross country course.  There are also several miles of beautiful wooded trails for riders to enjoy.  

If you would like to learn more or schedule a tour, please contact Lutherlyn's Main Office at 724-865-2161 or Carla at 724-496-5535.  For the safety of all guests, staff, volunteers, riders, and animals LEC does not permit unscheduled guests.

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!!!
