All In Stride Equestrian Center is open year-round with horse-related activities surrounded by more than 100 acres of picturesque countryside in Parkton, Maryland. Owners Barry and Wendy Kraus have put together a staff of dedicated instructors. All in Stride provides riding lessons, trail rides, and boarding services, as well as birthday-party packages for children. Lessons range from learning the basics for beginning equestrians, such as how to properly tack a horse, to more advanced concepts such as showing horses on a national level. Often, All in Stride takes advantage of its prime countryside spot by following trails into the nearby Hereford Area of Gunpowder Falls State Park.

The wellness exam includes a basic physical of your beast's body, during which his or her weight and blood pressure will be measured and noted, as well as an exam of the all-around level of wellness (Heartowrm/Lyme Snap Test and fecal exam for intestinal parasites not included).

An additional $25 credit toward any other Maltese-mending or Siamese-soothing service is also included.

Nestled in the heart of a scenic 45-acre expanse, Out of Reach Farm hosts one indoor and one outdoor ring, both equipped with challenging jumping courses. A covered arena juts out from the indoor ring, hosting private and small group lessons. While one of three instructors relays equestrian basics or advanced techniques to pupils aged 5 and older, parents and other spectators keep cozier than mitten-clad sheep in a heated viewing area. As the seasons evolve from chilly to sun-drenched, so do the farm's offerings, which include half-day summer camps suited to riders aged 5–15. For a more intimate peek into farm life, patrons can schedule two-hour birthday parties, with an hour devoted to pony rides for guests.

When Cheryl Schaaf was shuffling through old items, she discovered something she'd never known: as a child, her mother dreamed of being a veterinarian. She'd written it in her journal. At that moment, Cheryl was inspired to create a business that offered pet owners similar comfort and peace of mind.

The result was Walk the Dog—a team of animal-loving professionals that offer personalized pet care in South Jersey and parts of Pennsylvania. Of course, Walk the Dog's team members know they can't replace at-work or vacationing pet owners. Instead, they make sure pets remain active with walks. They also keep particularly jittery critters company with overnight sittings, offering a much more soothing presence than a broom with googly eyes glued to it.
