Not too many people get to make a career out of their childhood dreams. Needville Horseback Riding's head instructor Jacqueline, however, is one person who can say she did. After riding and showing as a little girl, she decided to pursue horsemanship further in college and into adulthood, earning herself a certification from the American Riding Instructors Association and the right to fulfill her equestrian dream each day.
Today, she empowers others to pursue similar dreams by conducting horseback riding lessons in the disciplines of hunter, jumper, and dressage for riders of all ages. Lessons take place year-round rain or shine, and can be tailored to each rider regardless of whether their goals include competing in shows, riding for pleasure, or taking over the carpool lane with horse traffic. Jacqueline also welcomes casual horseback riders to participate in equine action through birthday parties and youth camps.

Those who can't do, teach?or so the old adage goes. Not so with JJ Wood and Bruce Olson, coaches at Pecan Grove Plantation Country Club's Wood & Olson Golf Performance academy. As players the duo boasts some pretty impressive resumes, including a stint as a varsity golfer at Pepperdine University for JJ and coaching a third-place finisher at the 2000 Shell Houston Open for Bruce, among many other accolades.
It's this extensive background as players that has led to the formation of their teaching philosophies. When they take a student under their wing, they assess the entirety of the player's game?from mental approach to physical conditioning to unyielding devotion to a single pair of lucky socks. They then craft a training program uniquely suited to his or her skills, filled with such components as video analysis of the full swing, practice with reading greens, and golf-specific physical training. The approach clearly works: past students have gone on to earn golf scholarships at schools such as Notre Dame, the University of Texas, and UC Santa Barbara, in addition to taking home several state and club championships.
