As RHC Riding Academy’s head trainer, Erin Reid shares a passion for horses that began when her family founded RHC in 1985. A devotee to all things equine since age 5, Erin quickly caught onto the finer points of riding and has instructed students for the past 19 years. Barn manager Debra Reid, who discovered her life’s passion while growing up in Kentucky, managed 70 horses at a breeding facility in Southern California and unites her experience with Erin's. Together they oversee nine horses, several of which are Arabians—prized for their distinctive beauty and superior intellects. Students come to the facility from all backgrounds to learn proper saddling and riding techniques. Erin supplements her technical training with lessons in horse psychology, helping students bond with steeds or to get them to open up about complex relationships with their mothers. Horses in need of discipline or a hay-filled couch on which to crash can be boarded and trained at the facility, which boasts box stalls, an indoor riding arena, and a large outdoor arena.

Hoofbeats resound across cropped-turf grounds at Shelby Trails Park Equine Education Center. Here, 25-year equestrian Corinne Bradley teaches dressage and jumping techniques to riders of every stripe, from beginner to advanced to honorary centaur. She works with all ages but especially enjoys teaching young people, perhaps because she was only a child herself when she mounted her first horse. By the time she got to high school, she was steering her steeds through full-on equestrian events. Today, Bradley manages an equine paradise. Indoor riding areas introduce barn stormers to their mounts in a controlled environment, and winding trails encourage human and beast to bond while taking in the scenic countryside. A student of the Parelli way of riding, Bradley’s style emphasizes the horse-rider relationship. Through the Parelli philosophy, students learn to communicate effectively with equines, earning the horses’ trust by eating salt licks and respecting how they react to their natural environment.

Weissinger Hills Golf Course?s 18-hole layout bounds across 6,526 yards of rolling countryside to form a player-friendly par 72. The course?s narrow fairways encircle a quaint, hilltop clubhouse, from which players can plot a pin-hunting expedition that will bring them into contact with treacherous bunkers, water hazards on five holes, and thoroughbreds intent on outsprinting every golf cart and outsmarting every caddy. A stint at the driving range rattles the rust off of swings, ensuring clubbers won?t be ambushed by the demanding second hole, where an uphill fairway and a green hidden behind four water hazards coalesce to form the course's hardest-rated hole. PGA Head Professional Bryan Slone roams the grounds, divulging golf wisdom in various lesson packages. The club?s facilities include a fully stocked pro shop and a snack bar with cool drinks, light fare, and a sand trap full of incriminating scorecards. Course at a Glance: 18-hole, par 72 course Length of 6,562 yards from the farthest tees Course rating of 70.4 from the farthest tees Slope rating of 125 from the farthest tees Five tee options

Tanglewood Golf Course doesn't feature an overwhelming number of water hazards, but when water comes into play, its presence is felt. At the 11th hole, a pond turns the layout into the hardest hole on the course. At 501 yards, the 6th hole could be an easy scoring hole?a reachable par 5?if it weren't for another pond in front of the green that makes even long hitters think twice about aggressive shots. Such high risk-high reward shots loom throughout the course, which arcs over the lush hills of Kentucky countryside. Located alongside the 10th fairway, Tanglewood Golf Course hosts overnight guests in cozy motels with amenities including cable and full kitchens. The course offers weekend stay and play packages ideal for golfers in need of a romantic getaway with their favorite iron. Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Course rating of 71.2 from the tips * Slope rating of 131 from the tips * Four tee options * Scorecard
