Spanning 54 acres of verdant Texas Hill Country, White Fences Equestrian Center provides an ideal backdrop for outdoor revelry. During rustic soirees at the facility, all partygoers can enlist a long-faced companion from White Fences' stable to steer around the compound's indoor and outdoor arenas, gallop across fenced-in pastures, or engage in serious discussions about the ethics of eating baby carrots during lengthy trail rides. Accessible tack rooms, paddocks, wash racks, and barns invite equine enthusiasts to explore and interact with the artifacts of life in the saddle; the grill and picnic areas provide ample fresh-air to aid post-ride cooking, ingesting, and nail-polish drying.
White Fences Equestrian Center
Barbie Piccinni—owner, trainer, and head instructor at White Fences Equestrian Center—has been riding since she was 5 years old. Her daughters, Angel and Gina, have been riding since before they were born. Backed by dozens of medals in different riding disciplines, this trio of Piccinni women heads the staff at White Fences, helping riders to steer their mounts during private, semi-private, and group lessons every day of the week. Their sessions aren't limited to the arena—guests can also trot around the center's 54 acres of serene Texas Hill country on trail rides, which are completely free of pedestrians, bikes, and sports cars revving their engines as a challenge to race.
