Lined with scenic crape myrtle trees and pampas grass, Stonebriar Polo Club's regulation-size polo field stretches an expansive 48,000 square yards to host the fast-paced and challenging sport atop trained steeds. Equestrian instructors inaugurate students to the basics of polo in both private and group lessons, creating an intimate social setting to better learn the rules of the game and to reduce horses’ stage fright. Tailoring lessons to the level of comfort riders have in the saddle, instructors prepare students for the game with lessons on the rules of polo, mallet work, horse commands, and scoring. The club spans 60 scenic acres, augmenting the playing field with a Spanish-style pavilion ideal for watching games, socializing, and taking bets on which horses are two undercover journalists in costume.

Big Boar Tactical doesn't train their clientele on a typical gun range with stationary, paper targets. Instead, their trainers—each of whom has more than 12 years of professional armed bodyguard experience—take beginner shooters outdoors, where they move through a series of obstacles and shoot multiple targets set to various heights, distances, and parallel dimensions. Each drill teaches a relevant skill, from learning to draw a gun and move and shoot during the intro to handgun class to honing one-handed accuracy and using cover and concealment during the tactical combat handgun training course. Instructors can also help customers obtain concealed handgun licenses or master the use of various other firearms, including shotguns and rifles.
