    Why should you sponsor?

    Elysian Fields Equestrian Center is growing!  We have been in business for 18 months as a Horse Boarding and Riding Training Facility on a 40 acre location that is nothing like anything else in the area for over 100 miles.  Summer of 2018 we hosted our 1st Annual Equestrian Talent Show on relatively short notice ( 6 weeks ) and with very little assets or sponsors.  Still, we were able to gather the support of a few sponsors, bring in some vendors and enough talent to put on a two-hour show for the 100+ in attendance. 

    We had trick riding, vaulting, and roping on horses of several sizes, ages and background disciplines.  And, we had Trick Rider and 2019 Miss Rodeo North Carolina, Ashley Pletcher helping to judge and performing at the beginning, middle and end of the show.  Everyone had a blast and very much enjoyed the show!  We are looking for you to be a part of it all this year as we strive to make it even Bigger and Better! 


    Robert Schnars

    My name is Rob Schnars.  My educational and civilian background is in Architectural, Civil, Structural and Mechanical Engineering.  I have worked on the design of bridges and highways, civil projects, commercial buildings, and natural gas mechanical piping for the marceles shale region.

    On the military side, I was just a dumb grunt.  My military career began in 1995 on Paris Island, SC where I was reborn as a United States Marine.  After 6 years in the Marines, my unit was disbanded.  So, I transferred to the PA Army National Guard where I retired after 16 years as a Mechanized Infantryman in Jun, 2017.  With three combat deployments to Bosnia-Herzezovina, Iraq, and Afghanistand as everything from a machine gunner to convoy commander to platoon sergeant, I had a very rewarding and exciting career.  I say it is one of the best things I have ever done that I would never want to do again.  

    My wife, LeeAnn spent her entire adulthood working in the Medical Field, Cardiology to be exact.  LeeAnn grew up her entire life around horses, riding, training and competing.  It has been her lifelong dream to own and operate a facility like Elysian Field Equestrian Center.  In Oct, 2017, we made her dream come true.  Now together, we operate and manage the premier horseback riding, boarding and training facility in northcentral Pennsylvania.
