Bay Meadow Farm's combined 110 acres of idyllic, verdant pasture and facilities give range to hale school horses equally suited to riding rookies and saddle specialists. Aspiring equestrians first receive a primer on horse anatomy, breeds, colors, and markings, learning to identify a three-stocking chestnut with a blaze or a silver dapple with vestigial shoulder nubs from ancient pegasi ancestors. After mastering proper grooming and saddling techniques, pupils will practice riding skills while learning to safely lead, mount, and dismount their four-legged companions. The farm’s environs span a riverbank pavilion and nearby deciduous forest, with plentiful long-stemmed grasses enabling famished riders to graze to their hearts’ content.
A gleaming wood bar reflects the rows of spirits lining the shelves as well as the eyes of pool players, which dart in a calculated fashion across the emerald felt. At Bel Air Billiards Sports Pub, colorful spheres clatter and roll across eleven tables, which include 7-foot bar-box units and 9-foot Olhausen models. Tucked away from the smooth trajectory of cues and the wild arm gestures of dishonest fishermen, a scattering of tables boosts patrons as they sip beers by the glass or bottle and nosh on sandwiches and other finger foods. From the kitchen, one can hear hot oil crackling in applause as wings leap beneath shelves brimming with Old Bay and more than 20 spicy, barbeque, and mustard-based sauces. Ten high-definition plasma televisions situated around the perimeter flicker with images from live sports or public apologies to knocked-over hurdles, and karaoke nights flesh out the chatter with raucous choruses.
James Run Equestrian Center cofounders Sandrine Goble and Rachael North bring with them more than four decades of equestrian experience as well as championships on the French, American, and World circuits. Instead of carrying on an international rivalry that might’ve ended in a no-holds-barred underground jousting tournament, they decided to combine their talents and open an equestrian center. Sprawling across more than 40 acres of sylvan countryside, James Run Equestrian Center welcomes riders with a large indoor arena, an outdoor riding area, many miles of riding trail, and a training track. Sandrine and Rachael use the extensive facility to pass on their English-riding expertise to budding equestrians during 60-minute lessons, where they nurture young talents while focusing on the areas of eventing, jumping, and dressage.

Inclusiveness remains one of the major goals at The Arena Club. With 80,000 square feet of space and more than 200 dedicated trainers, fitness professionals, and other staff members available to them, Keith and Kathy Rawlings strive to create an environment where visitors of all ages and fitness levels pursue their individual goals, be it becoming more flexible in yoga class or running a 5K for the first time. Competitive athletes and casual enthusiasts alike can find opportunities to become stronger, lose weight, or even work to overcome mobility-limiting injuries. The Arena Club also offers professional guidance in the form of personal-training sessions and nutritional consultations.
Individual and group workouts are both available at the facility. The cardio area includes ellipticals, treadmills, and other machines equipped with personal-viewing monitors; and a combination of free weights and strength-training equipment fills a separate section. A field of indoor turf allows visitors to keep their athletic skills sharp regardless of the outside weather. The Arena Club also hosts more than 85 fitness classes throughout the week, providing members with numerous chances to get a solid workout within a supportive group setting.
The facility's aquatic center provides members with even more opportunities and activities to consider. Open year-round, this center features a 25-meter lap pool, a 12-person whirlpool, and a heated saltwater pool, which provides therapeutic soaks. Recreation and fitness each have their place within the center. Separate pools include a water-basketball court and dedicated areas for free swim.
