SGV Local Heroes is proud to highlight Local Business across the nation

Montoursville, PA - Nestled amidst picturesque landscapes, Elysian Fields Equestrian Center stands as a sanctuary for equestrians of all ages and skill levels. With a commitment to delivering exceptional services and a range of engaging activities, Elysian Fields provides an unforgettable and fulfilling equestrian experience to its clients. Whether you're seeking training, show classes, lessons, or even planning a unique birthday party, Elysian Fields has something special in store for you.

Dedicated to ensuring a safe and secure environment, we prioritize the well-being of our riders and horses. While we regret to inform you that we do not offer public trail rides or one-time rides due to insurance and liability concerns, we do provide trail riding opportunities exclusively to our current students enrolled in our lesson program. These riders must have demonstrated a certain level of capability in our indoor arena, ensuring their safety and the welfare of our horses.

At Elysian Fields, we boast an impressive facility spanning across 10 acres of lush pastures. Our 42-stall barn, 80x200 ft indoor riding arena, and clubhouse viewing area are designed to cater to the diverse needs of our riders. Additionally, we offer a host of outstanding riding programs, including training, small group classes, summer camp, and clinics. To further enhance your equestrian experience, we provide a wide selection of quality tack, supplies, and equipment available for purchase.

Our summer camp program is truly immersive, offering comprehensive riding lessons, horse care education, and other enjoyable horse-related activities. Safety remains our utmost priority, and as such, we have implemented stringent safety protocols. All riders and staff are required to wear helmets and protective clothing, while our horses undergo regular inspections and maintenance.

However, what sets Elysian Fields Equestrian Center apart is our profound commitment to the community and those who have served our nation and localities. We are proud to introduce Heroes Helping Horses | Horses Healing Heroes (6H), a program dedicated to supporting Veterans, Law Enforcement, and First Responders battling anxiety, depression, and PTSD. This program is offered free of charge, providing a safe and compassionate space for individuals of all ages and abilities to interact with horses, foster trust, and find solace in the company of like-minded individuals who have faced similar challenges.

The mental health of our heroes is a matter of great importance, and through 6H, we strive to combat the stigma surrounding these issues. Our program allows participants to release and reconnect their emotions while experiencing the profound empathy of horses. Horses possess an innate ability to understand and reflect our emotions, making them invaluable companions in the healing process. By addressing the mental health needs of our heroes, we aim to remind them of their worth, acknowledge their sacrifices, and ensure they never feel forgotten.

The founders of Elysian Fields Equestrian Center have personal connections to the cause of supporting our heroes. LeeAnn's father, a Vietnam Army Veteran, and Rob's grandfather, an Army medic during the Korean War, are both held in high esteem for their service. Rob himself served in the Marine Corps and the Pennsylvania Army National Guard, with a total of 22 years of service, including deployments to Bosnia-Herzegovina, Ramadi, Iraq, and Asadabad, Afghanistan. His additional role as a suicide prevention officer highlights his dedication to the well-being of his comrades.

In addition to providing emotional and mental health support through Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, 6H also emphasizes the rescue and rehabilitation of horses. Just like our human clients, our equine partners have faced their own forms of uncertainty in life. By integrating these resilient rescue horses into the program, we create a powerful bond between our heroes and the horses, fostering a shared sense of resilience and healing. Under the guidance of equine specialists and certified mental health professionals, our heroes have the opportunity to observe, interact, and learn from these magnificent animals.

Equestrian Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) has proven to be an effective therapeutic method, and our dedication to supporting our heroes is unwavering. If our efforts can prevent even a single hero from becoming a statistic, then every moment and resource invested in Heroes Helping Horses | Horses Healing Heroes (6H) will have been invaluable.

We firmly believe that our community in Lycoming County and the North Central region of Pennsylvania needs this vital addition. The mental health epidemic among our heroes cannot be ignored, and through 6H, we aim to make a lasting impact on their lives.

Elysian Fields Equestrian Center takes great pride in providing exceptional horse care, expert instruction, and a friendly, drama-free atmosphere. Our owners, LeeAnn, Rob, and the dedicated staff, bring a wealth of experience and passion to every aspect of our center. With their profound understanding of horse care and stable management, they ensure that the facility remains a clean, safe haven for both riders and their beloved horses.

As owners, LeeAnn and Rob personally reside on-site, offering round-the-clock availability and care. Your horses will receive the same love and attention as our own, creating an environment where they can thrive. We are proud to have our own on-call veterinarian and farrier services, but we also welcome owners to bring their preferred providers or take advantage of group rates.

We invite you to experience the tranquility and fulfillment that await you at Elysian Fields Equestrian Center. Whether you're a seasoned equestrian seeking top-notch facilities and programs or a beginner looking to embark on an unforgettable journey, our center is the perfect place for you.
