The Minnesota Saddlebred Horse Association unites stables across the state, showcasing the diversity of the american saddlebred and training future equestrians with individually tailored riding lessons. After arriving in long pants and sturdy, low-heeled shoes, riders don helmets as instructors commence half-hour equine adventures to acquaint students with an agreeable saddlebred, whose manner and relaxed gait are perfect for human accompaniment and a marked advantage in "act casual" situations. The average lesson covers mounting and dismounting, walking and trotting, rein control, and how to properly engage with the horse. In addition, riders will spend time learning how horses think and react in common situations. The MSHA's participating stables open on evenings and weekends for man-to-beast interactions after school or work.
Acres of grass paddocks ripple in the wind around the large indoor and outdoor riding arenas at Wild Oak Farm, where owner Renee Lenkart works to help students to improve their riding abilities and develop a bond with equines. As hooves clop out a staccato rhythm against the sun-soaked red soil, Renee calls upon years of experience crafting lessons for both beginner and advanced students. She has also spent time training and showing hunters and jumpers, and many of her students have gone on to participate in national competitions or yelling matches at grocery stores with no-horse policies.
Featherbrook Farm's head trainer and instructor Lisa Avaloz draws upon a lifetime of equine experience and an international network of colleagues. The farm fosters interspecies cooperation through lessons, camps, and birthday parties. Riding lessons instill in young riders the importance of grooming, form, and confidence, rewarding proper handling skills with positive reinforcement. Beginning students start on a lunge line to improve their positioning, strengthen their seat, and gain a feel for their horse. Safety remains of utmost importance throughout the lesson. All students must wear helmets while riding and avoid giving horses celebratory piggyback rides after completing a session.
Featherbrook Farm conducts weekly camps from June to August for 6–14 youngsters at a time. Campers ride twice each day and establish a solid foundation of horsemanship through grooming, first aid, and studying horse anatomy. In addition to education, fun and excitement abound as children play games and make crafts with new friends.

They take special care of all animals, whether furry, feathered, or scaled with a range of services ranging from annual vaccinations to veterinary acupuncture. What's more, general wellness appointments are made easier thanks to a slew of on-site conveniences. Digital x-rays provide immediate viewing of images, and an in-house pharmacy and lab mean that owners won't have to leave to get their pets' medications or test results.
Dog City Dog Park is an indoor and outdoor doggy playground for temperate dogtime throughout the year—and with today's deal, you'll receive unlimited access to this canine castle from the beginning of June, through the dog days of July and August, and up until the end of September. The park provides all the accoutrements needed to send your puppy into paroxysms of delight, including tennis balls, chew and tug toys, water, and more, so let your pooch pal off its leash to cavort happily, haplessly, and safely across the vast, open space inside. Like a swanky dog gym that thinks it's for people, Dog City is open 24/7 to members—meaning your dog can work off his excess energy at midnight in a cool, climate-controlled environment without disrupting sleeping children, dozing grandparents, or the diurnal bat nest above your bed's headboard. Members also have access to Canine Camp, a program similar to doggy daycare that usually runs for $20 a day (there's a "three days for the price of two" special during summer). Today's deal also includes a one-hour doggy-psychology session that specializes in issue identification and correction.
