Our Herd

The herd at Lutherlyn Equestrian Center typically includes twenty to twenty-five horses and ponies.  Our herd lives at the LEC year-round and is cared for by a wonderful community of staff, students, and committed volunteers.  Just like people have unique personalities, so do horses, and some of the smallest ponies in our barn have the biggest personalities!  

Take a few minutes to meet our herd, they're a great group of sweet, patient, and sometimes silly personalities.


Support Our Herd
Your time & gifts make a difference!

Horses and ponies require a lot of care, which can be costly.  Feed, supplements, fly masks, blankets, brushes, therapies, medicines, treatments, farrier visits, and veterinary care are all necessary to keep each member of our herd healthy and happy.  We are grateful to the many generous donors who provide gifts which help us provide the best care for our horses.  If you would like to make a gift to support our herd, or sponsor a specific horse or pony please visit lutherlyn.com/donate to make a gift.  You can designate your gift by selecting Lutherlyn Equestrian Center or by including a message in the Comments.  Gifts to help cover the cost of therapies and preventative care are particularly helpful to keep our horses all feeling their best.

The LEC is also blessed with hardworking and committed volunteers who help us keep things running smoothly.  In addition to helping us care for our herd members, dozens of general maintenance projects are completed by our wonderful volunteers.  They keep our students and herd safe by mending and maintaining fence lines, clearing ditches during rainy seasons, cleaning windows, removing cobwebs, repairing gates and stalls, cutting grass, cleaning and organizing the tack room or supply area, helping with therapeutic riding sessions and much more. 

If you're interested in becoming a volunteer please contact Teresa (one of our instructors and volunteer coordinator) at 724-996-4577, no horse experience is required; anyone can help us make a difference!

Lutherlyn is a designated 501(c)(3) and depends on the financial support of its community.  Make a tax deductible contribution today!
Gifts can also be mailed to Lutherlyn, PO Box 355, Prospect  PA 16052.  If you'd like to designate your gift please include a brief note with your request.


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).
