LexLin Gypsy Ranch Donates Old No. 7

Posted on August 10, 2011 with No Comments

It was a hot, sunny Saturday when we arrived at in Humboldt, TN on July 23, 2011 but that didn’t keep all of friends, family and community away! We were greeted with a fantastic reception as we drove with people clapping and waving anxiously awaiting Old No. 7’s arrival. There was a TV setup with a video on TLC and its mission, a great scrap book of some of their students and more information on AGHAF and LexLin Gypsy Ranch.  TLC Riding Academy was founded in 2006, as a therapeutic horseback riding program for persons with disabilities.  Horses are used at TLC to assist with activities that help individuals with physical and emotional challenges.  They assist all ages of people from young children to adults in their 80’s. There is a small per hour charge fee for lessons/activities but no one is turned away for their inability to pay! There is no doubt that Cheryl and Tom who own and run the academy do it out of a great love for people and horses.

We look forward to updates from TLC on how Old No. 7 is fitting with all their other horses. Tom and Cheryl have a great facility and we can tell Old No. 7 will be showered with love and affection just by the short time we spent there.

hoofbeats coverForgive our horses at LexLin Ranch if they start acting like diva supermodels. They’ve been featured on two different magazine covers in the past two months. This month, three of our fellows are shown on the cover of Hoofbeats.

Last month, you’ll recall we mentioned our cover story in Equine Journal.

LexLin Ranch Open House: A Huge Success!

Posted on October 1, 2009 with No Comments

Thank you to all participants, guests, and volunteers for making LexLin’s 1st Open House a big hit! Without the hard work of the staff and friends our 1st Open House would have been nothing more than a great idea. It brought new visitors to LexLin, who along with breeders and friends, got to meet our horses, tour our ranch and learned about our mission.  Attendees throughout the day enjoyed activities, food, viewed our first “Mare/Foal and Stallion Parade” as well as Ranch tour. We were excited Tom Price was able to attend from Wales. Check back periodically for new pictures. Thank you again to all who helped make this a wonderful day! Check us out at

We have been bombarded with requests to do it again; in fact we’re already planning the next one in the fall 2010. Here is an example of some of the comments we have received.

Just a quick note to tell you how impressive the new LexLin horse ranch operation is. We had a good time at the grand opening and found Eric and Mechelle to be thoroughly delightful and genuine. They will certainly add to the image of Grand Vista Bay with a very classy operation. Very warm and nice people and it will be interesting to follow their development of the operation with their splendid horses”.
