Our Lesson Horses
“Horses Without Riders”
Our normally hard working lesson horses are on a much needed vacation due to our social distancing for COVID-19. But unfortunately for us, that means they’re not earning their keep.
While we enjoy wonderful weather for riding year round in Florida, we pay a pretty penny in the cost of supporting our lesson horses. A bale of hay here is $25-38. Add to that the maintenance costs of the extra care, medication and supplements that many of our valuable elderly lesson masters require, and it has us worried about the weeks or months to come until life returns to normal.
Please consider joining our
Support For Our Lesson Horses!
Whether you can help out your favorite lesson horse with a week of feed, or want to insure all the lesson horse supplements are paid for a month, every gift will push us closer to the finish line so our much loved and needed lesson horses will still be here waiting for their riders when our doors reopen to the public.
Thank you so much for helping us support our lesson horses while they’re on hiatus due to the pandemic! Any amount is appreciated.
Not all of our school horses live outside, but our bare bones cost to feed horses without anything extra is:
$140 – 1 week
$280 – 2 weeks
$420 – 3 weeks
$560 – 4 weeks
Any donation of $140 or more will receive a BHEC Gift Certificate for a Private Lesson!
$560 Sponsors will be noted and will receive a personal photo shoot with their sponsored horse (or their own horse) from professional equine photographer Tami Johnson when we reopen the barn.

“Cleo” is a favorite among our lesson people! She is sired by the many time World Champion Mtn Laurel Maximilian, and out of a mare who was just three generations away from our Orcutt Family foundation Morgans. Cleo was bred by Ruth and Elizabeth Orcutt, Louise Henry’s mother and sister, and is still technically owned by Lark’s late grandmother (Woody’s mom), the wonderful Vivian Henry. She holds a special place in all our hearts as a true member of our family.
