-Our Facility-

3E’s Equestrian Education Program is housed at SpeakeEasy Stables in Laurel, DE, a full-care horse boarding facility that has served the Laurel area for over 10 years.

In addition to full indoor amenities, including a hot-water wash bay and indoor grooming area, the grounds at SpeakeEasy Stables offers handlers and riders an outdoor training area with round pen and full-size indoor arena to house programming – rain or shine

-Our Herd-

“Top Secret”, lovingly known under the barn name Topper, is an 18yo Chestnut Appendix Quarter Horse who prides himself on being the guy with the biggest personality at the barn. But, don’t let that scare you – Topper is sweet, goofy, and genuine, and would love to meet you and spend time getting to know you!

Cody is a 19yo Quarter Horse who supplies loads of patience and grace to his novice students. One of our herd favorites, Cody's quiet demeanor and sweet personality surely leave an impact on the students who he serves.

“Pull the Trigger”, also known as Trigger, is an approximately 20yo paint pony who came to SpeakeEasy Stables as a skin and bones rescue horse. Through time, love, attention, and proper care, Trigger has blossomed into the awesome little guy he is today. Trigger truly embodies the mission of 3E’s, to educate, equip, and empower the relationship between horse and human.

In addition to Topper, Cody, and Trigger, SpeakeEasy Stables is home to many other great horses who often make an appearance at 3E’s programming – come and meet our herd today!
