On its scenic Palmetto farmland, HillFord Farm's stable of proud steeds and expert instructors impart equine education to saddle sitters of all ages. Across two private, 30-minute riding lessons, aspiring equestrians ages 4 through 16 can ascertain the foundational framework for several types of riding, whether for competition, pleasure, or old-timey train heisting. Lessons place an emphasis on safety, instilling students with the proper etiquette to display around the barn and on their horses. Dedicated to the health of their top-notch trotters, HillFord pampers each horse with scrumptious grain and hay, daily turnout, and meticulous stall upkeep. Students can hone their trots on one of HillFord's steeds, or request a "haul in" lesson to learn on their own four-legged friend or friend in a convincing horse-mascot costume.

Foxhall Resort & Sporting Club sprung from a man's vision of a place to live, explore, and play. And it wasn't a small dream. The grounds span more than 1,000 acres of the rolling hills that nestle up to the Chattahoochee River, where visitors paddle in open-top kayaks, cruise in hovercrafts, and swim. Water isn't sparse here: 16 lakes, ponds, and streams provide plenty of opportunities for fishing for bass and the Lochness Monster. Further catering to the sporting type, the grounds host hunting expeditions in search of quail, deer, and turkeys.
Beyond natural beauty, the resort also offers man-made resplendence. The sporting club hosts a range of activities at well-appointed facilities, which include bocce ball courts and an equestrian facility. And centrally located amid the Lunker Lake boathouse and swim and tennis center stand rustic, yet modern, fully furnished vacation homes, which accommodate guests with privacy while keeping them in the center of the action.
The 18-hole course at St. Andrews Country Club drapes over 400 acres of countryside, demanding precise ball placement and keen focus as players navigate its two distinct sides. Course superintendent Heath Hammond keeps a meticulous watch over the conditions of the bermuda fairways and bentgrass greens, ensuring they stay not only pleasing to the eye but also lush enough for comfortable celebratory somersaults. Players choose from five separate sets of tees to start their round, rendering the course as long as 6,629 yards from the back tees but enjoyable for golfers of all ability levels. On the front nine, players must exhibit precise control over shots as they wind through the course's residential portion. The game relaxes on the back nine as it winds through open spaces dotted with handsome trees and allows players to unleash power. Before a round or during practice sessions, golfers can hone their strokes on St. Andrews' two-tiered driving range. A chipping green, a sand trap, and a bentgrass putting green round out the practice area's offerings, allowing players to re-create actual course conditions.
