At Encore Farms, a wide assortment of jumping obstacles—including cross rails and verticals ornamented with colorful flowers—populate the different rings, ready for clearing by teams of horse and rider. Shira Horowitz looks on, overseeing each student’s advancement by passing on skills she learned from riding horses since she was a little girl and earning an Equine Science degree from Wilson College. Shira gently but persistently coaxes the best performance out of her pupils, regardless of whether they aspire to enter serious competition or just need an icebreaker for chance encounters with knights in shining armor.
Though he had originally studied architecture and interior design, Michael Peluso found his career path to be artistically lacking. Once he took his first glass-blowing class, though, he knew he’d found his true medium. It was a logical fit, as his ancestors had practiced the art in Germany and Italy. Michael has since gained knowledge from numerous glass-blowing masters. He passes on this knowledge to his students in various classes, during which he teaches them how to safely manipulate molten glass and blow it into intensely colored marbles.
