Concord Ridge Equestrian Center
“What was a quiet section of Michigan 139 in central Berrien County has turned into a heaven of sorts for horse lovers,” writes a reporter for the South Bend Tribune. That 39-acre elysian stretch, surrounded by fertile Michigan vineyards, is Concord Ridge Equestrian Center. There, equines clip drumrolls against the soil on a cross-country course complete with banks and water jumps, and riders on the Natural Horsemanship Course brush up on skills such as posture and honking motions at passing clydesdales. The center’s teaching team dispenses instruction to eager pupils on the three outdoor arenas and two indoor arenas. Students can then take their newfound expertise out onto the network of riding trails or the nine pastures. Chatter about riding apparel and technique drifts from an upstairs lounge, where guests find WiFi, elevated bleachers, and a kitchen.
