fun, P. E. credit
By STEPHANIE GRAHAM
For a major university located in the middle of some of
the best horse country in the state, UNC-CH waited a long
time before offering students a topnotch riding program.
Finally, students have a place to ride.
Hunter's Isle Stables in Hillsborough began giving physi
cal education credit for horseback riding this semester, and,
though there have been some rough spots, the classes have
proven to be well worth the wait.
"If s been a littie hectic," Liz Courier, one of the stable's
instructors, said. "But for only the first semester, things have
Courier is one of two teachers the stable employs. A grad
uate of Southern Seminary, a women's college in Buena
Vista, Va. with a strong equestrian program, she teams with
Carol Alston to handle 4 he several classes offered each day.
Alston is a graduate of Averitt College, another Virginia
school with a fine riding tradition.
While most P.E. courses are free, there is a charge for this
class. For $1 50 a semester, students can ride twice a week
for one hour. Though the cost may seem high, for each of
the approximately 25 lessons the student receives the fee is
only $6. Most stables offering comparable lessons charge in
the neighborhood of $10 an hour.
The only drawback to riding at Hunter's Isle may well be
the location not the cost. The stable is about 20 miles from
campus, and the trip takes about 30 minutes each way. Still,
by carpooling and by the fact that class scheduling allows
an extra hour for transportation, most students have been
able to solve this problem.
"The ride doesn't seem that long because it's such pretty
country," Charlotte Ward, a senior from Rocky Mount, said.
"But, it does take a bit more time out of the day when you
have a lot to do."
With 100 acres, two rings, several pastures and miles of
trails, the Frank Kenan-owned stable offers plenty to encour
age students to make the long trek. Perhaps the biggest at
traction for the stable, however, has been the quality of its
