S & L Stables is a small facility in Eastern Lancaster county that provides horseback riding and pony driving lessons on our experienced horses.  We are the home for the 4-H club Blazing Saddles.  Our main focus is Western Dressage and pony driving.  We host clinics and a WDAA and NDA sanctioned dressage show every summer.  Check out our calendar of events.

Fall has been a busy time with a new horse entering our lesson program - Joe and new students,  plus training a mini team and a few year end fun events.  Sheila enjoyed several fairs this fall including the Nebraska and Iowa State Fairs with her driving ponies.  Call us if interested in youth or AA riding and driving lessons.
