DeLima Stables is a full service equestrian center offering horseback riding lessons, camps, shows, training, and boarding in Harrodsburg, KY.

Located in the heart of  horse country, DeLima Stables provides instruction for riders of all levels and ages. DeLima Stables offers lessons tailored each rider’s needs and goals, and is equipped for both first-time riders and long-time competitors. In addition to lessons and training, De Lima Stables also offers camps, clinics, and horse shows where riders can earn points towards year-end awards, to be presented at the annual awards banquet.

Owner and instructor Mary DeLima is a graduate of Meredith Manor Equestrian College in West Virginia and has trained with David Q. Wright of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and Dave Pellegrini of Germantown, Tennessee. She has been sharing her knowledge, experience, and professionalism in the Hunter/Jumper community for over 30 years. An active competitor herself, Mary is currently showing several client-owned horses, one of which is expected to reach Open Jumpers in 2016, and Grand Prix levels in the next five years.

Training is offered for horses of all levels of experience, but Mary’s specialty is starting young horses. Under her guidance, these horses have gone on to excel in many disciplines, as well as becoming well-mannered partners for their owners, both in the Kentucky area and internationally.

Situated on 41 acres of lush pasture just outside of Lexington, DeLima Stables is only minutes from the historic Shaker Village, where horseback riding is a wonderful way to see Kentucky’s natural beauty. Within an hour’s drive are the Kentucky Horse Park, Keeneland Race Course, and the Bluegrass Airport.
