River Mountain Farm’s experienced equestrians saddle up to train students on a 100-acre facility that boasts five barns, eight large fields, three outdoor arenas, and a heated indoor arena with secure Polytrack footing. Obedient schoolmaster horses trot into daily lessons and fill the air with reassuring whinnies as students use provided equipment to prep and tack their chosen steeds. Once riders are secure in their saddles, instructors adjust lessons according to their skill level and foster clearer lines of communication with a brief tutorial in horse whispering.
The Mosquito Authority keeps skeeters at bay through services such as barrier sprays, misting systems, and special event sprays. During these treatments, exterminators apply an EPA-approved solution to exterior foliage including trees, shrubs, and magic beanstalks, which not only eradicates all current mosquitoes but also prevents new ones from stopping by for up to 21 days. While clearly harmful to mosquitoes, the solution is so focused that it won't cause harm to pets or children.

For more than 30 years, Walnut Way Farm has taught saddle-seat horseback-riding lessons for riders of all experience levels, with an emphasis on human and horse safety. For horse pilots' first equine engagements, an experienced instructor will cover safety basics, steering, control, rider posture, and rearing up in front of sunsets. Saddle-seat riding, a subsection of English style, shows off the horse’s confident high trot and creates a solid riding foundation to which riders may add other styles. Since horses play cribbage on Sundays, lessons run Monday–Saturday.
Phyllis P. Allen and Victoria Martin have mad shampooing and blow-drying skills. But they aren’t working their magic on human heads. Instead, the owners of Pet Paw's have set out to prove that dog washing doesn’t have to be a pain, welcoming pet owners into a spacious grooming studio stocked with everything they need to get Fido clean quickly, calmly, and without cash bribes.
Each deluxe doggie bathing station features a raised tub that dogs can easily scramble into via a special staircase, and gentle restraints keep each pooch in a stable position during the duration of the scrub-down. Customers can don aprons to protect outfits from sudsy splashes, created from three varieties of natural earthbath shampoo blended with ingredients such as aloe and tea tree oil to leave coats fragrant and shiny. After the last rinse, towels and special air-blowers dry off fur, as special perfumes replace that wet-dog smell with something more snout friendly. Treats reward each well-behaved customer and the staff will clean up all the mess left behind, freeing each chic pup to focus on more important tasks such as showing off at the dog park or attending modeling go-sees.
The pet specialists at Pet Paw's can also help busy or apprehensive pet owners by giving dogs professional grooming services upon request.
