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.

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.
