Andrea Whiting, Arbordale Riding Academy's head instructor, draws upon 14 years of professional experience to teach budding equestrian all-stars. Andrea has served as a board member of the Tampa Horse Show Association and a member of the United States Equestrian Federation, a group known for supporting quality care and voting rights for prettier ponies. On the academy grounds, Andrea's students hop atop one of the outfit's carefully maintained horses to receive an introduction to the skills required for competition. Students can learn how to ride in the english style of saddle seat during lessons, and summer camps are also available. One of Andrea's most accomplished students won a National Championship title with the help of her tutelage, and two other horses and three riders who studied under her earned top ten World Championship ribbons.

Arbordale also offers full boarding facilities for steeds, providing all the bedding, grain, and blanketing their tired haunches require. Horses and their owners exercise on 15 acres with various turnout options, and take advantage of the facility's large outdoor arena, jumps, and full tack room.

Slippery Brook Enterprise’s head instructor, Tracy Schlabach, has spent more than 30 years working with horses, a wealth of experience that has earned her silver and bronze medals from the United States Dressage Federation . Aspiring equestrians pick Schlabach’s brain for horseback-riding knowledge during her private riding lessons at the picturesque Half Pass Stables, whose dressage ring, clay arena, and jumper arena emerge out of lush, emerald foliage. She teaches a variety of styles that strengthen the relationship between human and equine, making them work together to accomplish pole-clearing bounds, ballet-like dressage dances, and record-breaking three-legged races. Schlabach also runs a horse-boarding and lodging program at the same stables, housing four-legged companions in the barn’s 34 stalls and turning them loose for regular grazes on verdant pastures.

Genesis Paintball's woodsball field sprawls across 38,000 square feet with uneven terrain and junkyard obstacles including corrugated pipes and large wooden spools. Players dive into the long trench to evade their opponents, who can shoot from a minimum of 10 feet away or duck into hollowed-out bunkers to catch their breath with a game of Pattycake. On the other end of the facility, the astroturf-covered speedball field measures a regulation 120'x170', where teams can fire at close range and hide behind inflatable obstacles such cylinders and pyramids. Between bouts, patrons retreat to the concession stand to refuel with drinks and snacks.
