Bay Ranch Lodge and Equestrian Centre's lessons and trail rides partner patrons with one of myriad horses for traversing its more than 250 acres. British-trained instructors imbue participants with their extensive knowledge of proper horse safety and riding technique during a 30–60 minute lesson within an enclosed arena before grooming sessions and double-knotting horseshoe laces prep each equine for its ride. Once students are securely aboard, horses spend an hour trotting along trails fastidiously trimmed in summer and plowed in winter. Each trek leads riders through bountiful pastures, natural woodland teeming with wildlife, or on bayside routes flanking Sturgeon Lake. As voyages conclude, customers can warm chilled tongues with unlimited cups of hot chocolate while making snow angels with their steeds.

The image doctors at Black’s transform damaged snapshots into mint-condition memories with their photo-restoration service. A seasoned staff member artfully scans aged pictures in disrepair from years of nostalgic glances, sending the original home with the owner for safekeeping. Camera-captured likenesses then undergo a digital time warp that expunges them of all scratches, tears, and poltergeists lurking in the background in three days or less, regardless of the amount of initial damage to the source print. After the corrected portrait has been inspected by the customer, the rejuvenated image takes its frameable form in a 6"x8" print, and a CD traps both the restored and original images in its data-storing underbelly to use for additional prints or as references for photorealistic macaroni portraits.
Helmed by nature photographer Rob McPhee, the beginners' digital photography course acquaints aspiring photographers with the basic principles of digital photography, editing, and software use. Students can complete the four-week course on their home computer, work computer, or underground lava computing system. The online format allows photographers to cover the coursework at their own pace, though they should expect to dedicate 20–30 minutes of work each day, studying 36 chapters of material, formulating a thesis on the Code of Hammurabi, and completing four online assignments and four photography assignments. The assignments are designed to reinforce each day's lessons, and instructor Rob McPhee diligently responds to emails to answer any lingering questions about the curriculum. Though pupils must supply their own digital camera, they receive a free 30-day trial of the editing software that corresponds with the course. Upon course completion, students receive a certificate that verifies their newly acquired snapshot savvy, ideal material to impress blasé refrigerator magnets.
