Established in 2014, Robinson Equestrian is a full care boarding and training facility. In August 2015 we moved to Diamond 7 Ranch and Arena in Dillsburg, PA. The facility is currently undergoing renovations, but boasts five outdoor arenas and two indoor arenas!
Robinson Equestrian was founded by Kelsey Robinson Lesh and in September 2016 she added boarding manager Jane Hunter as her business partner.
Robinson Equestrian offers full care boarding and a hand full of riding lessons each week as well as consignment, training rides, and shipping. See our boarding or lessons page or contact us for more details and prices.
Prior to opening Robinson Equestrian, Kelsey was a working student under Pam Tanner (natural horsemanship/western dressage), trained under various trainers including Megghan Watts (hunter/jumper/equitation), and was the head trainer at Day Star Farm (Connemara breeding) in Leesburg, VA. In addition to her experience with horses, Kelsey is a graduate of Shippensburg University with a degree in Biology and a certification to teach Secondary Education. Drawing from her classroom experience, Kelsey breaks her training down into clear, simple steps in order for both horse and rider to better understand the task at hand. Kelsey also has a great interest in rider fitness and has published research on rider heart rate.
Kelsey specializes in training horses and riders for the hunter/jumper ring as well as pleasure and trail riding in western tack. Kelsey's training focuses on relationship building between horse and rider, as well as teaching her students to be smart and safe when they are around horses. Working from the ground up, her students and horses build confidence that will carry them in any direction they wish to go.
A former Nurse, Jane Hunter is a lifelong horse enthusiast. As a child she competed in gaming, but now prefers the quietness of trail riding and trail obstacle challenges. She follows Clinton Anderson training methods and Julie Goodnight riding exercises. Jane owned and managed her own boarding facility of 17+ horses and rehabbed many rescue horses and is a certified trail competition judge. She has since moved to Carlisle, PA to be close to family and is now co-managing Robinson Equestrian. Jane is also a horse photographer, feel free to check out her work, Wild Hare Photography.
