About US

Owner Jan Roehl, has worked with horses in all disciplines in racing, competing and retraining for second careers for over 40 years.

Jan gradated from Morven Park International Equestrian Instute where she trained with Major John Lynch, 6 time Olympic coach, then with Karl Mikolka who is in the USDF Hall of Fame. She has a strong back ground in classical riding, eventing and dressage and loves passing that on to her students who build a strong riding foundation from a balanced seat.

Realizing the need to help “Off-The-Track Thoroughbreds” find second careers, she founded the Thoroughbred Horse Show Association, one of the first organizations to run exclusive retired Thoroughbred horse shows for these equine athletes to get show experience to help them start their second careers.

In designing The Horse Lodge, Jan wanted the kind of facility for horses of all breeds and disciplines that need “time”. With extra large 14X14 stalls, some with turn out, sand round pens and individual paddocks, your horse will feel the special treatment they deserve.

Residing at The Horse Lodge are two of Jan’s retired Thoroughbreds. When they are not grazing in the big green pasture, or eating carrots, they are pulling a carriage.  Jan is the only person competing in combined driving events with a pair of retired Thoroughbreds.

Jan makes sure all horses get the quality care they need. And MORE!
