At the Adsmore House & Gardens, the story of one family has continued uninterrupted for more than 100 years. The old house and grounds, meticulously restored to their Golden Age glory, serve as a stage of sorts, where visitors can interact with chapters in the history of the Smith-Garrett family. They can relive youngest daughter Selina's wedding to Dr. John Osborne, and see the bride and matron of honor's dresses being readied in an upstairs bedroom. Or they can mark daughter Katharine's birthday by learning how a 6-year-old's birthday would have been celebrated in 1907. The exhibits provide a glimpse into the day-to-day life in another era, rich with stories of trials, tribulations, and triumphs.

The whinnies of quarter horses ring out across Barnfly Stables, where a trainer with more than 15 years of experience coaches steeds to take their riders' lead. The teacher breaks animals through groundwork and exercises in accordance with a training curriculum molded around ranch-riding and ranch-trail techniques, as well as reversing horses' rebellious behavior or sarcastic retorts. In addition to priming horses for riding or shows, staffers also breed affection for four-legged friends during lessons. Pupils of all ages master safety, grooming, and proper trotting techniques during sessions built on effective communication between the rider the ridden. They also season competitors for battle by honing techniques, such as barrel jumps, atop horses gussied up with stylish tack from Barnfly Stables' online shop.
