Amid rolling hills and green pastures, Marc and Lisa Sleeckx oversee All Hoofed Up Ranch, where crops, animals, and pastoral scenery flourish. The duo leads trail rides on their faithful fleet of Tennessee walking horses, exploring sites such as Mohican State Park and Malabar Farm State Park. Marc and Lisa saddle up the horses for carriage rides in the summer and sleigh rides through the winter snow, letting them hibernate in peace in the spring and fall.

Also a trained chef, Marc leads a cooking school at the ranch, inviting guests to benefit from his kitchen wisdom. After graduating from culinary school in Belgium, Marc immersed himself in the culinary scene, opening a restaurant for the European Parliament and training under the chef of a Michelin-starred restaurant. During classes, Marc teaches his students how to craft succulent dishes such as seared ahi tuna, coq au vin, and filet mignon—some of which he may prepared while cooking for the former president of Germany, multiple ambassadors, and baseball pro Chipper Jones. Marc also possesses a deep knowledge of wines, which he shares with students during wine-education classes and tastings.

It’s no surprise that as a mother of five, a Cub Scouts den leader, and a tutor to autistic children, Tender Touch Farm instructor Lisa Gilliam has a way with children. She’s been sharing her passion for riding with youngsters for more than a decade, encouraging them to grow and learn through equestrian experiences such as camps and lessons. Within one-hour lessons, she teaches kids how to maintain their balance and communicate with the horse without the use of words or Morse code messages nudged into their sides. After lessons, kids also get exposure to the nonriding components of horse care, such as grooming and anatomy.

But this go-karting business has a big brother?the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience. It's a high-speed trip into the pro-racing trade, with breathtaking ride-alongs and racing experiences in stock cars.
