Blackjack Lane Equestrian is nestled in a beautiful horse community just 25 minutes southeast of Downtown Houston, 15 minutes from Baytown, Deer Park, Pasadena, League City, and Clear Lake. It is common to see riders trail riding down to the large open riding field or over to La Porte’s public Lomax Arena and park which is right across the street.
The two large gates with coded access welcome you as you arrive and allow privacy and security of our facility. Adding to the security here are the many closed circuit cameras, as well as Krissan and Adam Barber, and grooms living on site.
As you make your way to the first barn, you’ll pass 3 large pastures with plenty of shady trees, where horses enjoy daily turnout regularly. The largest pasture has a pond where you’ll frequently find some of our dads and brothers fishing! Our first barn is equipped with 13 stalls, 2 climate controlled tack rooms, a lounge, bathroom with shower, an indoor wash rack, a grooming stall, and multiple crossties. Each stall has an automatic waterer, high velocity fan, and private, covered run. This barn can also be air conditioned and heated!
The large garage attached to Barn 1 currently houses our laundry room, tack cleaning station and will soon be fitted with multiple dry grooming stalls for easy grooming and tacking. This project is scheduled for summer of 2016.
Moving to Barn 2 you will see 4 quarantine stalls that are used for new horses transferring in from out of state or any others that need to be separated for injuries or sickness. They also come with high velocity fans, automatic waterers or buckets as needed, and without runs for those that need to heal with less room for activity.
Barn 2 is only a few years old and houses our climate controlled, concrete feed room as you first walk in. We have stocks for any medical needs along with 18 more stalls with automatic waterers, high velocity fans and covered private runs. The aisle leads right into our beautiful covered arena.
Our covered arena is fantastic during our wet Texas winters and hot summers. It is equipped with 3 Big Ass Fans for a great breeze, and a viewing room for spectators to stay out of the elements while watching rides.
The viewing room for the arena can be accessed when you enter the office next to the arena. It is a lovely space for family and friends of our riders to watch lessons or to unwind at the wet bar after a long day. The viewing room also boasts a flat screen TV that we also use for classroom purposes during in barn lessons or to review video from rides. With Wi-Fi, visitors can do business or study for school while at the barn. There is also a beautiful bathroom with a shower if you have plans after your barn visit.
Heading to the back of the property, you’ll see some of our pony paddocks, each with stalls with fans and waterers, and more of our large turnout pastures. Nestled right next to our trailer parking is our large outdoor arena. With new sand put in during the winter of 2015, it is the perfect place to jump our full course of hunter and jumper style fences.
We have a fantastic barn family to accompany our top notch facility who enjoy spending plenty of time out with us. We enjoy having parties and get-togethers, as well as fun barn days with our equine teammates.
