Harnessing the equine expertise of two renowned members of the Professional Horsemen's Association, Caughman Farms advances students of all skill levels in both English and Western riding styles. The content and length of each lesson will depend on the student's individual experience, rate of improvement, and collection of tasseled chaps, but all pupils will learn the basics of horse care, cleaning, and equipment. The mild-mannered canter of a retired juvenile competition horse permits fledgling steed steerers a large margin of error and level of comfort. Two instructors accompany small children to ensure each tyke's safety and feeling of security while instilling the important life lesson that all good things come in stereo. Leaving behind the small, covered beginner area, more advanced equestrians can gallivant around the spacious indoor arena atop a homebred stallion.

Columbia's mobile eateries will converge upon City Roots Farm for The Food Truck Rodeo's first-ever festival of wheeled fare. Taste buds can wrangle a formidable trio of Southern, Latin, and Mediterranean flavors blended at Alfresco Mobilista's or swing by 2 Fat 2 Fly to savor wings stuffed with ingredients—such as mac 'n' cheese or jambalaya—as unexpected as an 11-month year. Festival-goers can tuck mobile mouths into saucy creations from Bone-In Artisan Barbecue on Wheels or devour cushier bites of between-bun eats from Pawleys Front Porch. A cash bar will un-parch throats with Sierra Nevada brews, Jack's Honey Lemonade, and environmentally packaged Bota Box wines, and the Plowboys will entertain crowds with their live bluegrass ditties and spot-on impressions of Christopher Walken's second cousin, Doug.

When you watch a JumpBunch activity in action, it might look like someone put an entire ball field into a shrinking machine?right down to the players themselves. At each session, JumpBunch's instructors bring along an age-appropriate, smaller indoor or outdoor version of a sport?such as football, basketball, or softball?or one of 70+ other potential activities from yoga to fly fishing. Instructors might even set up a few three-legged activities so kids can hone their teamwork skills or dream of what it would be like to ride two horses at once. Whatever the day's agenda, JumpBunch's team keeps kids focused on three core areas: having fun, honing physical skills, and developing a healthy lifestyle early on. At locations across the United States, JumpBunch's instructors host sessions for toddlers, pre-schoolers, and school age children up to 12 years old.
