Mississippi and Louisiana Road Show

The Black Stallion Literacy Foundation road show is back in action with the fall swing to MS and LA.

September 17th two shows in Amite, LA. 10:30 AM and 7:00 PM

September 20th in Greenwood, MS 10:30 AM

September 21st in Jackson, MS 10:30 AM and 7:00 PM
It’ll be fun so if your anywhere near by come on down and join in, lend a hand as a volunteer or just sit back and enjoy the show, it’s always a treat!

As my ol’ buddy Gaylord (one of the funniest horse acts you ever might see) used to say.
“Why do they call you Tex, you’re not from Texas”
“No, I’m from Louisiana, but Tex is a lot better than Louise!”

Don’t miss the show partner!


Black Stallion Experience Opens This Weekend!!

The new Black Stallion Experience opens this weekend at the Kentucky Horse Park!
It’s an all new and beautiful wing of the Museum at the Horse Park just outside of Lexington, KY.

The special exhibt “A Gift of the Dessert” will only be there a few months but the Arabian wing that features the “Black Stallion Experience” is part of the permanent galleries.

If you’re lucky enough to be there this summer for a show, the Rolex or the World Equestrian Games … or if you’re just visiting on a drive down I-75 … take a look!
The Black Stallion is your guide through the world of the Arabian horse from the dessert to the show ring.
We hope to get some pictures of the gallery soon but it’s been such a fast and secret ride we don’t have any yet.

If you DO get to visit be sure to write us back and tell us what you think.

Check back soon for more news and photos!

Black Stallion in Lakeland Florida

alec & the black
It was another great 2 days of the Black Stallion Literacy Foundation in Lakeland Florida.
If you can’t come to Orlando for the show … the show will come to you!
This time we had to be outside which is a bit tougher but Alec is used to being on an island and the Black is a desert horse!
There’s more coming this summer with camps and after school programs so be sure to check out BSLP.org!
