HORSES from page 3
16 school horses. Stable manager George Bryson thinks the
horses have been well-suitecl for the classwork.
"We have some that are good for beginners and some that
are green for more advanced riders," he said.
Katherine Fuller, a senior from Danville, Va. agrees that
the horses have worked out well.
"I think the horses are excellent" she said. "There seems
to be a different level horse for every different rider."
It is a good thing that the horses cover a wide range in
terms of skill because the students riders vary from the level
of rank beginner to current show rider. This diversity caused
a few initial problems in that some classes contained both
beginning and advanced students. The instructors have
managed to get around the problem, and they hope the next
semester they will not have to worry about it.
"We're trying to equalize numbers and leveling for next
year," Courter said. "We have the courses leveled ahead of
time this time so students can fit them into their schedules."
Despite the growing pains the stable has experienced in.
the first semester of the program, Courter said she has had
nothing but positive feedback from students. Ward, one of
her students, said that both the time and the money have
been worth it.
"I have really enjoyed it," she said. "I think it has been a
good break away from school and campus arid studying, a
Fuller, a beginner at the start of the semester, vouches for
the quality of instruction.
"I feel like I know something about it now," she said.
"There is a lot more to riding than just sitting on a horse."
Though there really is an awful lot involved in the hunt
seat in riding that the stable teaches, Courter said that
grading her students may be tough.
"It seems to me that any student that tries his best should
be given an 'A'," she said.
With all the work at Hunters Isle, Courter and Alston may
well have trouble even finding the time to fill out any grade
sheets. Besides the UNC classes, the stable also coordinates
the Duke Intercollegiate Riding team which competes on a
show circuit against other N.C. and Va. colleges. Regular
lessons for non-students are offered on Saturdays, and the 40
horses the stable owns or boards require a lot of care.
The stable staff also somehow finds time to participate in
ome foxhunting during the fall season. Advanced UNC
students are invited to lease a Hunter's Isle horse and ride
along as guests of the Red Mountain Hunt
; If it sounds like Hunter's Isle is a stable with everything to
offer it is. Fittingly enough for a bam owned by the Kenan
family, there is even a horse named Tar Heel.
