About Us

A Family Business

Lee's Summit Equestrian, LLC is proudly owned and operated by Diana Knittel-Pace and Grace Petty, a mother / daughter team.  


We're serious about our horse care, and about providing a warm and welcoming environment for our human and equine clients.  Our clients are part of our barn family.


  • We are an easy drive from Lone Jack, Lee's Summit, Lake Lotawana, Blue Springs and Independence. And also from Pleasant Hill, Raymore, Belton and Peculiar. And you'd be surprised how fast you can get here from Raytown, South Kansas City, Leawood and Overland Park. Even our Wyandotte County clients say it's a relaxing drive - time for listening to music or podcasts a couple of times a week.

Please call us to arrange a tour!
