Lynchland Stables
Lynchland Stables is a small, privately owned facility located just East of I-25 and South of Prospect, approximately 10 minutes from campus. We are not a fancy place - although we have great facilities! Our focus is keeping the horses that live here happy and healthy, while providing a supportive learning environment.

We are looking for a specific type of boarder and student - ones that are looking for a close-knit, friendly environment, where people get along absolutely! No cliques or catty people to be found at Lynchland. We work with many rescue groups, and hope that the people that board here have an interest in equine rescue, as well

We live by the philosophy that no horse should have to live in a box. Accordingly, we have two environments to stable your horse:

Sheltered Stalls and Runs: 12 x 12 sheltered stall attached to 12 x 40 pipe run. Horses are fed twice daily, stalls and runs cleaned daily, shavings provided. Regular turn-out schedule if desired.

Semi-Private Paddocks: Approximately 75 x 150 with 12 x 20 loafing sheds. Two horses matched according to personalities and nutritional requirements. Horses are fed twice daily, paddocks cleaned twice weekly. Regular turn-out schedule if desired.

 

Current Boarding Rates: Effective September, 2008 - $350 per month for whichever environment best suits your horse. We have no additional charges for anything! We provide grass and/or alfalfa, and a 10% protein sweetfeed. If your horses requires something different, you provide it and we'll feed it.

**We do have two heated and insulated box stalls if your horse requires special care - we just think that horses prefer to socialize when given the chance!

At Lynchland – our philosophy is somewhat different! We are looking for the student who wants to learn everything about the care of the horse(s) they will be riding. We expect the students will learn how to catch, groom, handle, lead, lunge, bridle and saddle the school horse/pony themselves within a few months. After the student has mastered these basics, increasing amounts of time will be spent on riding skills – assuming the student has caught, groomed, bridled and saddled their school horse before the lesson starts! As the student gains more skill, they will also lunge their horse, and warm the horse up under saddle before the lesson starts.

We expect that the student keep a journal, and religiously record their lessons! A typical entry may read: “Rode Sadie today, worked on correct bandaging methods, how to lunge her in the round pen. Then we worked on trotting over cross poles, while in a two point, and then posting. It was hard for me to hold a two point, and I would like to work on that in my next lesson. My lesson today was easy/hard because……….”. PARENTS! It’s so important for the kids to keep a journal! They can’t practice a lot of their riding skills from one lesson to the next, but by going back and reading it, they can relive it over and over again. We think it’s also wonderful if parents can commit to videotaping their child’s lesson once a month, to chronicle improvement – and sometimes, just so we can let the student see what they may be doing well or poorly.

 

Our lessons vary from day to day, but always start out with ground work, flat work and stretching. We may move on to work in the Dressage Arena, the Round Pen, the Indoor Arena, or out in the Cross Country Course. We may do yoga, we may play games, we may do gymnastic exercise – eventually building up to the student’s individual goals. Often we will combine 2 or 3 students of similar experience to simulate actual competition classes.

We expect that students are involved in the care and upkeep of all tack – which includes spending time cleaning bridles and saddles, cleaning up grooming and washing areas, replacing equipment, etc. We want all students to really know what it means to be responsible for a horse! We have a motto here – “No Snobby People Allowed – Ever!” We want to teach good horsemanship – as well as fellowship at the barn.

FEES:

Evaluation and Planning lesson - $75 – approximately 2 hours. The student’s first day at Lynchland will be used to familiarize them with horses, tack and grooming supplies. We’ll evaluate current skill set and develop a game plan for ongoing lessons. Taught by Jackie and/or Susan.

Regular lessons are $35-$55, depending on whether students are using their own or a lesson horse, flat or jumping, individual or packaged. Lessons are usually just under an hour, but if the student is tired, we won’t push it. If the student is really catching on to something, and we need more time to cement the lesson, we’ll take it! Usually the first couple of months are hardest, and take some endurance building! Regular lessons will include some homework exercises to build up, lengthen and strengthen specific muscle groups.

Mom and Me Lessons - $50 – are usually an hour long. This class is geared toward parent and child learning together. Participants will learn the basics of good horsemanship, with a focus on the parent learning these basics correctly! Parents will learn how to assist their kids in grooming, bridling and saddling, and horse handling skills. We can also introduce parents to saddle time if you’re interested! A fabulous bonding time for pre-teens.

Mom & Me

Cameron, Poco and Rhone

Rule #1 - Mom, no flip flops at the barn!

Introductory lessons are $25 for a 30 minute session. These lessons are for young children, whose attention span limits their time in the saddle!

Saturday and Sunday morning lessons are $75 for a 2 hour lesson block, and typically will have 2-4 students of the same level. These are intense lessons, and everyone goes away exhausted but have learned a lot! Taught by Jackie and/or Susan.

Horse Show Days are variable, based on the number of classes the student enters, how much schooling they need, and if they will be using their own horse or one of mine!

Our lessons extend out of the home arena and into the show ring! Katie and Poco pictured winning the Puddle Jumpers class at a CHJA event.

Camping Trips are scheduled 1-2 times per year, and students must be fully capable of caring for and responsible riding of “their” horses. It’s a blast!

Excursions – if you decide you’re ready to start shopping for a horse or saddle – We’re be happy to help! If it’s less than an hour, no charge will be assessed – over an hour, a regular lesson fee is assessed.

Horses for Lease and Sale – Lynchland often has horses available for half lease, full lease or sale, and sometimes - the same horses that you take lessons on! Ask us for more information, and we’ll help to evaluate if you’re ready to take the jump to leasing or ownership.

Where in the world is Lynchland!

Lynchland is off the beaten path, and a bit tricky to find! Our actual address is '4709 East County Road 40, Fort Collins, CO 80525'. Mapping services sometimes can find us, and sometimes can't!

From Denver or South Fort Collins:

Take the Harmony Exit and head east. Take the first left (County Road 5), and head north. You will see a sign saying "Timnath". Go through Timnath, and over the rail road tracks. Continue heading north for 1/2 mile, and take a left on County Road 40 - you'll be headed right back towards I-25. Go approximately 1/2 mile, and pass our indoor arena on the left side of the road. Our driveway has a sign saying "Private Drive/Dead End" and another saying "Lynch/Salisbury/Schmidt". Take the driveway all the way to the very back, we have a yellow ranch house and yellow garage. Please park by the garage, and go through the double white gates in to the property.

From CSU or Cheyenne:

Take Prospect east over I-25. Take an immediate right on the Frontage Road, and travel south approximately 3 miles. The Frontage Road takes a sharp left hand turn, becomes a dirt road, and turns into County Road 40 (although it doesn't SAY that anywhere). Go up a block, and on the left side ( northside) of the road, you'll see a house that looks like a junk yard (really and truly). Our driveway is on the right side of the road, directly across from the junk yard house! Our driveway has a sign saying "Private Drive/Dead End" and another saying "Lynch/Salisbury/Schmidt". Take the driveway all the way to the very back, we have a yellow ranch house and yellow garage. Please park by the garage, and go through the double white gates in to the property.

Then........

You can find Jackie by coming through the chain link fence - you'll be beseiged by dogs, but they will merely knock you down and lick you to death! Or better yet, call her at 970 412 7070, and she'll come find you.

Although we do occasionally allow boarders to bring their dogs on property - please! Do not bring them for your first visit here!

If you come to visit without an appointment, you can often find a current boarder that is willing to show you around and answer questions. If you'd like the 'grand tour', please call Jackie at 970 412 7070, and we'll do our best to have someone available to meet you! We do believe that our happy horses are our best references.

We are less than 45 minutes from North Denver, and less than 15 minutes from CSU!
