LESSON HORSES

We love our lessons horses — they truly are the backbone of Lenux Stables & Riding Academy. Without them, we couldn't introduce horseback riding to newcomers, beginning and intermediate riders wouldn't be able to advance their skills, and there would be no show riders pursuing their competitive equestrian dreams.

 

"ADOPT" A LENUX LESSON HORSE!

 

Due to the recent coronavirus outbreak, there currently are no riding lessons, which means all of our lesson horses are out of work! These horses work so hard to teach weekly lessons to help us receive funds for their daily care, feed, veterinary care and farrier work. We have tried our best to keep the barn open so our riders can have a sense of normalcy and get their "horse fix" during this crazy time and allow our horses to do what they do best... teach! However, with recent news and newly reported cases of the virus, we felt it was in everyone's best interest to close for a while. It was an extremely difficulty decision to suspend our lessons, but we felt it was best for the health and safety of our customers, staff and families. This leaves our beloved lesson horses without their jobs and they need your support!

 

All "Adopt a Lenux Lesson Horse" sponsorships will support the horses daily care so your children can return to our riding program and still have the best horse partners possible. We can't wait to have a barn full of kids again, and the lesson horses cannot wait to get back to work!
