Spook Fest at the Stable! Halloween at CEC!

Beware of the Headless Horseman!

It was a spooky time at Corinthian Equestrian Center on Friday for boarders, students, and their families. CEC’s first Halloween Party was a great shindig with good eats, games, and costumes. All of the costumes were handmade by the CEC’s students and everyone looked fabulous while having loads of fun. The horses got to bob for apples, while the adults enjoyed the food and facilities. Games of Pass The Hot Gourd and Musical Stalls were a big hit.

When the darkness descended the kids were playing Manhunt in and around the stable while the adults enjoyed the conversation and drinks in the lounge.

CEC’s first annual Halloween Party was a scary success! Check out the Event Gallery for more images!

The Headless Horsman (aka owner Lee Dillon) and Eagle will be terrorizing the Village of Warwick downtown this Friday, October 27th from 5:00 to 7:00 pm, then they’re off to the Haunted House near the Warwick Inn to scare the kids.

Clinic with Farrier, George A. Thomson

Corinthian Equestrian Center is holding a free horse safety and handling clinic with retired farrier, George A. Thomson of Western New York on Saturday, August 12th from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

George A. Thomson has been working with horses since the age of fifteen when he first apprenticed as a Farrier in 1955. He specialized throughout his fifty plus years in corrective shoeing to address diseases of the foot and lameness, such as Founder, Navicular, Club Foot, as well as reconstruction of the foot due to trauma. George is known for his ability to shoe not only American Saddlebreds and Morgan horses, but also the hunter, jumper, and eventing breeds. He’s well versed with knowledge of the appropriate movement needed to show the various horse breeds.

George has never been kicked by a horse in all his years with working with them. Find out how to be a friend to your horse, as well as work safely with them.

Dressage at CEC

My name is Diane Mansour and I’m very happy to be working with my students at the lovingly renovated Corinthian Equestrian Center. As a trainer, I see my role in helping the dressage horse and rider gain their fullest potential as artists and athletes. Experience of more than fifty years, first as a young hunter/jumper, then as a dressage rider, breeder, and facility manager, convinces me that this happens through kindness, insight, and persistent work. With patient and informed guidance, I work with riders of all ages and at all levels through Prix St. George to engage successfully and joyfully in the discipline of classical dressage.

If you’re interested in taking dressage lessons at CEC, contact Diane at (845) 986-5762. For more information about riding lessons in another discipline contact Lee Dillon at (973) 617-7744 or through the Contact Form.

Fast Steed, Sure Rider

Corinthian’s Armani and his owner, Lee Dillon had a number of fantastic rides at the Garden State Preview Horse Show on Sunday, April 30th. Armani and Lee were the Champion team in the Puddle Jumper (2’6″) Division!

Armani and Lee, Champions at the Garden State Preview Horse Show, April 30, 2017.

The Garden State Preview is only their second jumper show together. Lee has been working with Armani for a number of months now and more recently with CEC’s resident hunter/jumper trainer, Ken Okken.

Armani is responsive and very fast (he’s a speed demon), particularly in the power speed round, working the first eight fences clean and quick before hitting fence number nine where his fast button goes to supersonic!

Check out the video of their power speed round below.
