About Us

 

Company Bio

The Lazy K Arena was built by owner Mike Lilienthal.  Until 2007 the facility was used for private training, after opening it to the public Mike hired manager Seth Adam.  It became our goal to make the Lazy K Arena a place where every horse lover can come and enjoy.  In December of 2007 Seth's wife Jenna was hired.  Since 2007 the Lazy K has expanded the facility in events held there as well as pens and stalls.  We are proud of the variety that the Lazy K offers and would love the chance to continue to expand.

 

Owner:

Mike & his new wife Julie are very proud of what the Lazy K has built into within the past few years.  The land that the arena is built on has been a part of the Lilienthal family for years.  Mike grew up working on the land and built his first home there once he completed his service in the military.  He started his own business, MRL Crane, at our location then moved it into town several years later.  Even though his business consumes a lot of his time Mike loves to be out at the Lazy K riding, working, driving the team, or just spending time with all the great people who enjoy the Lazy K.  Julie moved to the area this summer, and helps with various projects around the barn. 

 

Managers:

Seth & Jenna Adam have been managing the Lazy K for the past 3 years.  Both grew up around horses & it has been their life long dream to work in such an amazing place!  Seth grew up on a ranch in the Sandhills of Nebraska.  His family ran a cow/calf operation & raised Quarter Horses; from the time he was a little boy Seth has been riding ranch horses.  He broke his first horse at age 10 and is proud to say she is teaching a little boy how to ride today.  What started as a young boy's adventure has turned into a life long occupation.  Jenna also started at a young age; her family also ran a cow/calf operation. Being involved in 4-H was what started Jenna's horse training experiences.  Because of her wonderful experience in 4-H Jenna has made it a large priority in enhancing the local youth by giving riding lessons, organizing 4-H practice, & putting on clinics for inexperienced horse owners.

 

Animals:

Sissy

Sissy is one of the lesson horses.  She is a beautiful palomino mare with an extraordinary personality.  She has been doing lessons for the past two year.  Her favorite is giving rides for birthday parties!  She always seems to be little girls favorite horse.  Sissy has taught people of all ages how to ride, from a four year-old little boy who called himself "Cowboy Jack" to a sixty four year-old lady who would choose to remain unnamed.  When not giving riding lesson Sissy is busy running barrels at local horse shows, roping at brandings, and teaching Jenna how to team rope.  She is a great horse for all skill levels. 

 

Pepe

Pepe is our "good old girl". Her life started as a feedlot horse then she became Jenna's 4-H horse, then was handed down to her little sister.  We used her in western pleasure, trail, & just about everything else.  She is now sixteen years-old & her quiet disposition makes her the perfect 'first horse' for any rider.  Pepe was always the horse that we turned to when an inexperienced rider wanted to have a safe ride.  When Jenna started at the Lazy K she turned to Pepe to teach lessons.  Now Pepe is used for beginning lessons & people who need a quieter horse to ride. 

 

The Team

Tom & Chance are the Lazy K's latest addition!!! They are seven year-old Percheron gelding who we have just bought from Messersmith Draft Horses in New Haven, IA.  We are excited to start giving hay rack rides, parades, weddings, and other events in the community.  We love the boys & can't wait to show them off.

 

Our Mascots

The Lazy K has a variety of mascots.  Sloppy Joe is our head guy.  He is a four year-old Saint Bernard who would love to slobber on you if you would just give him the chance.  He is the head of the greating committee, usually followed by Buddy, Hammy, & Dwight.  If nothing else is true, this is...The Lazy K is not dog poor.  Another mascot at the Lazy K who thinks he is a dog is Jasper.  He is the donkey you will see wondering around the place.  He is friendly as can be & never minds a good scratching or a treat every now and then.
