The Art of
The Lee’s Summit Appaloosas are based on my Mother, Lesa Vandenburg. My mom has always loved horses. She had several when she was young and was involved in various organizations such as 4-H. The primary logo is the shape of a shield representing her role as protector of my brothers and me. The shoulder logo takes inspiration from the subtle lettering within the old Milwaukee Brewers and Montreal Expos logos. The placement of the horseshoe and the bar through the center resembles the letter “E”, and when set within the initials of the team, spells my mom’s name, Lesa. I owe much of my involvement in sports to her. Between that my brothers and I were involved in, she always made sure we got what we needed and where we needed to be. The number 4 is for her children: Shane, Jon, Dylan and myself.
