Boarding

Everyone at the Louisville Equestrian Center wants to welcome you, your family and your horse as part of something very special.  Our mission with our boarding programs is to provide equine facilities and care where the horse’s physical and emotional wellbeing are paramount.  We design a program with respect for each animal’s intelligence and needs for a sense of place, comfort and safety.

Modern, New Facilities

The Louisville Equestrian Center features 78 matted stalls, wide aisles, two wash stalls, 6 indoor grooming areas, vet and farrier work areas, large climate-controlled tack rooms and a laundry room.  We have two indoor, climate-controlled arenas as well as pasture and paddock turn out space. Automatic watering, an automatic fly spray system and 24-hour security round out the superior care given to each of our horses.

Expert Trainers and Support Staff

With each of our boarding programs at LEC, our approach revolves around personalized attention for both riders and horses. Under the experienced guidance of trainer Don Bridges and his team, we care for your horse as if it were our own. The welfare and safety of horses and people are our highest priorities.
