The horse-whispering pedagogues at Countyline Equestrian Center tutor greenhorn riders in all disciplines, with specializations in hunter, jumper, and dressage training. During riding lessons, students first learn the basics of horse care such as bathing, grooming, and how to catch a horse without first beating it in a game of wits. A stable of trained school-horses trot students toward greater riding confidence and through a fleet of exercises, including 45 minutes of ride time and 15 minutes for tack up and cool down. The center houses a grassy dressage/jumping field and wash stalls for luxurious horse showers, as well as verdant pastures that provide ample space for off-duty horses to reenact their favorite scenes from Jurassic Park.

Countyline Equestrian Center

At Countyline Equestrian Center, owner and lifelong rider Rebecca Rainey is proud to maintain what she calls a "little barn" atmosphere. That intimate atmosphere stems partly from the fact that Countyline Equestrian Center is a working farm—Ms. Rainey breeds horses there, the show horses live there, and it's not unusual to see chickens pecking the dust looking for pieces of fallen sky. But it's also due to their approach to riding lessons, which are personalized to suit each rider's goals and abilities.

Long before new riders take to the saddle, Countyline Equestrian Center's instructors help them feel at ease around the horses. When students feel ready, instructors help them climb aboard gentle steeds to trot around the 60-square-foot arena, then eventually bring them into the larger footed ring. Taking it slow ensures that each rider feels comfortable holding the reins, whether it's for a short ride around the barn or to compete nationally with the center's show team.
