Countyline Equestrian Center
At Countyline Equestrian Center, owner and lifelong rider Rebecca Rainey is proud to maintain what she calls a "little barn" atmosphere. That intimate atmosphere stems partly from the fact that Countyline Equestrian Center is a working farm—Ms. Rainey breeds horses there, the show horses live there, and it's not unusual to see chickens pecking the dust looking for pieces of fallen sky. But it's also due to their approach to riding lessons, which are personalized to suit each rider's goals and abilities.
Long before new riders take to the saddle, Countyline Equestrian Center's instructors help them feel at ease around the horses. When students feel ready, instructors help them climb aboard gentle steeds to trot around the 60-square-foot arena, then eventually bring them into the larger footed ring. Taking it slow ensures that each rider feels comfortable holding the reins, whether it's for a short ride around the barn or to compete nationally with the center's show team.
