Led by owner and instructor Jan Faithful, Faithful Stables' team of experienced horse whisperers trot new riders through the basics of horsemanship before embarking with groups on equine treks through the countryside. Under the tutelage of a thoroughbred-horse lover, amateurs channel their centaur ancestry and become saddle savvy enough to handle a steed. After 30-minute lessons, groups of four embark on a trail ride through Rocky Mount's scenic countryside. Individual riders match up with a group of up to three other horsemen, and quartets set out on private trail voyages. The 30-minute escapade takes riders through rows of cotton and tobacco fields, where they’ll fill their lungs with fresh air far from the grimy city and its slickly dressed pigeons.
