RANDOLPH COUNTY, N.C. -- Peanut butter and jelly, hands and gloves, we all love pairs that work - but horses and archery? It may be a little out of the ordinary for most people.

Circle C Equestrian Center in Sophia, North Carolina teaches horseback riding and archery; and it's as difficult as it sounds.

Cassidy McCollum began coming to Circle C in 2004 as a Girl Scout, but now she is teaching others to ride.

"My favorite is when girls are scared for their first time, and they get on that horse and their face lights up," she said.

For the inexperienced rider, they teach the basics of riding before getting on the horse. For everyone else, it's hard work from the get-go.
