RR Saddle Club helps connect humans without the means to own horses with equine friends and also hopes to rescue horses that are stuck in unsavory situations. Nestled in the heart of the Santiam River Valley, the club's barn houses gentle steeds who carry riders on guided trail rides through the club’s 200-acre property, past wildflower-strewn meadows, into the foothills of mountains, and through thickets of fir and maple. Visitors can also schedule pony parties for youngsters or sign up for lessons to learn the basics of riding and how to signal horses to trot, canter, and fly.
If skill is measured in hours spent practicing a craft, Teddi Jean could be called a master. She graduated from a 1,200-hour aesthetics program at the NW Institute of Esthetics and channeled her skills and experience into Teddi Jean's Skin Care. To foster beauty on the surface, she applies traditional, long-lasting water-resistant airbrush makeup, as well as eyelash extensions with Minkys faux lashes. She also helps skin obtain a more radiant glow with custom facials and body treatments, such as seaweed and chocolate wraps, which revitalize skin and reduce signs of aging without outfitting customers with sailor outfits and oversize lollipops.
Petra's Euro Spa is an extension of the accumulated beauty wisdom of Petra Nicoll, a medical aesthetician and former aesthetics director for Paul Mitchell. She began her more than 25-year career in outer-beauty bolstering by attending schools in London and Munich to study the aesthetician arts, including permanent-makeup application, biofeedback techniques, and plucking eyebrows into the shape of cuneiform etchings. Her spa’s menu of beautifying services for the face, hands, feet, and body is complemented by offerings that focus on the mind-body connection, such as reiki and intuitive readings.

Adam Ball literally grew up on the water—he can’t remember ever not living next to it, and most of his fondest memories involve being on the water with friends and family in some way. “If I go for three or four weeks without being on the water, I don’t feel right,” he said. Through happenstance, Adam’s passion for the water transformed into a business. After discovering paddle rafting, he started taking out whoever would go with him: friends, coworkers, friends of coworkers who had a cousin who knew this guy who said his mailman mentioned something about wanting go rafting. Then people started calling to book group trips. And thus Adam became a business owner.
Today, he and his team of experienced guides take adventurers out onto North Santiam River, which drops 27 feet per mile as it races along the Cascade Mountains. Guides prepare guests for the Class II and III rapids—sporting nicknames such as Rock & Roll, Upper and Lower Escalator, and Jaws—which provide safe yet challenging obstacles for passengers of all skill levels. The river winds past sights that range from canyon walls to opulent homes. Wildlife sightings abound, such as osprey that swoop to snatch salmon, river otters that lounge on the shore, and duck and geese that ride alongside the boat through the rapids. A local rottweiler also makes regular appearances, lumbering down to the shore to bark and solicit lunch money.
