We are so excited to show you all of the improvements around the farm that we have decided to host a schooling and fun show! On Saturday, October 21st, renowned trainer, saddle-fitter, author, and show judge Amanda Berges will be here. Showcase your skills, get one last schooling show in before the end of the season, and have some fun with us at LCEC. We will have food for purchase from our resident 4-H Club. An up-and-coming photographer will be here to take your picture orders. We will even have some show shirts available for purchase, as well as a few other vendors. Check out the show bill, and we look forward to seeing you on Show Day!
It has been a long road, but we can finally say that our arena footing is ALL being replaced! The new sand for the outdoor arena has already been delivered, and is in the process of being spread. Once that is completed, we will schedule delivery of more sand footing for the indoor arena! Come check it out soon!
Another successful year of camp has come and gone. Our 4-H members did a great job of teaching horse husbandry and basic riding skills. If you missed it this year, don't worry! We will be back again next summer with another fabulous week!
Our three-day camp for elementary students was a huge success. Check out some of the photos here. Even though the weather was terribly hot, the kids all came to us excited to learn and thrilled to ride. We had a great time getting to know each and every one of them, and hope that they will take the opportunity to join us again, either by scheduling lessons with one of our instructors, or by returning to camp next year. Keep checking back, as dates for next year's camp will likely be in June to avoid the heat we endured this year! Thanks again everyone!
Romona and her family purchased a second horse, who has also joined the LCEC family. We are happy to introduce you to Fancy Pants! She is quite the character, as you can see.
After moving all of the tack racks to the lower level of the tack room, we began a much-needed face-lift in the lounge and kitchen area. It began when Chelsea decided she couldn't "look at this floor any longer," and began to pull it up! That prompted Jeff and Justin to open up the kitchen area by removing the old counter and stove. Meanwhile, the fridge was also moved, to allow a greater walkway into the restroom, and the window that opens into the barn aisle was opened up and repaired. Within a week, the men had built and installed a beautiful new counter, spanning the full wall. We now have plenty of space to visit with each other, which was proven at our Holiday Party!
But we aren't done yet. New cabinets and new flooring will be installed soon after the holidays. We will be sure to post new photos when the space is finished!
