our story



We are passionate about our craft, honing our skills to be the best that we can possibly be. We are also very proud of the winding paths that brought us to where we are today! We’d like to introduce ourselves, and give a quick background on how each of us fell in love with the art of horsemanship.


Hi, I’m Meredith!


Meredith Newman grew up riding horses since age 5, a love fostered from the beginning by her family’s trips to the farm in Amherst for holidays. She took her first lessons at a local barn, riding her eleven-hand Welsh Mountain pony Sally at age 7. She soon discovered her intense competitive drive under the tutelage of Glenn Moody at the Barracks, riding her small pony Where’s Waldo to top state and national placings in the pony hunters.

Meredith then went on to ride and show ponies with Richard, Patsy, and Drew Taylor, where she learned about pony hunter breeding, showing in hand, and sales from the best in the business. From there as a junior, she continued her career riding with the likes of Sheila Motley, Kelley Fielder, Patty Stovall, Kelley Farmer, and Larry Glefke. She successfully competed in the junior hunters, jumpers, and Big Eq where she garnered top placings at the largest shows in the nation, including Indoors, Devon, and Winter Equestrian Festival. She was the first person to win the Virginia State Medal Finals and Junior Horseman Championships at the same time.

In 2007, Meredith had the opportunity to establish connections abroad. She worked for Roy Wilten in the Netherlands that summer and imported two horses of her own to develop and campaign in the United States. Successfully selling both horses, she traded her boots for a whistle and embarked on a 12-year collegiate coaching career. In 2016 she returned to her alma mater Sweet Briar College, where she rode horses and played lacrosse, helping to do her part in Sweet Briar‘s renaissance.

Meredith handles the administrative side of Lone Pine Hill, dealing with clientele and running the day to day operations of the farm.


Hi, I’m KAllie!



Kallie Hainline began riding at the young age of six, when her parents finally gave into the horse-crazy kid and got her lessons. By way of the universe, the little barn in Quasqueton, Iowa was home to the “Timber Ridge Pony Club” where it all began, diving in head first with a fairly wild pony purchased from a local horse trader. Amigo the Pony taught Kallie what it means to hang on for dear life! Starting off with Western, she fell in love with the English riding style after seeing some of the older students jumping their horses, and immediately she knew that was what she wanted to do.

Moving up through the levels and 4 great horses, doors of opportunity just kept opening. Kallie was introduced to Foxhunting, becoming hooked within the first ten minutes of trying the sport. Another door that opened was polocrosse at USPC Championships while there attending Quiz Rally championships. A few years and thousands of miles later, Kallie was selected to represent the APA on the youth development team in Australia in the summer of 2008.

Kallie’s focus slowly shifted towards cowboy mounted shooting, a sport in which she has won many titles and awards. She is currently a Ladies 5 shooter, with only a few more wins to become a Ladies 6. The diverse experience from crossing disciplines and the need for galloping through nature led Kallie to the field riding instructor position at Sweet Briar college where she taught for 4 years, and further developed her education in the American system of forward riding.

Kallie is in charge of the training and lessons side of Lone Pine Hill. On any given day she can be found out in the round pen taming a new horse or in the arena giving tips to a young rider.
