Centennial Acres

Visitors to Centennial Acres work with experienced riding instructors and four resident horses—Trixie, Pita, Autumn, Chip, and Kid. These steeds and their riders ride through a small indoor arena and in an outdoor arena at Centennial’s 19th-century farm, depending on the weather, all under the watchful eye of owners Matt and Emily Williams.

Matt has converted the farm—once used for raising livestock and cultivating crops—into riding stables where Emily and other instructors teach proper horsemanship, safety, grooming, and tacking to students as young as 4 years old. Drawing on more than a decade of experience in training for equitation, showmanship, and breaking in new horses, Emily coaches students in Western and English riding styles, hunter and hunter-jumper styles, and dressage.
