An idyllic farm nestled along the Westport River 5 miles from Horseneck Beach, Driftway Meadows carefully sows and harvests show horses and riders. The facility, which has racked up a great reputation in the Morgan horse-show scene, staffs experienced, state-licensed instructors who are fluent in hunt seat, saddle seat, and dressage. During a pair of private lessons, riders yearning to become one with their mounts can climb aboard a merry school horse and enjoy some pretend jousting while appreciating the stable's abundant greenery and bucolic atmosphere.
As the days begin to wane and the trees' green leaves start to turn, Clark Farms celebrates the arrival of autumn by hosting its annual fall festival. The friendly farmhands welcome in guests of all ages for themed activities, which allow them to savor the season while experiencing a small taste of New England countryside life. Visitors can navigate the corn maze's labyrinth of towering stalks and direction-savvy scarecrows, or satisfy a need for speed with a zip down a 30-foot slide or lap around a professionally designed go-kart track. Clark Farms also encourages adults and kids to learn about farm life by taking a hayride around the grounds, touring the pumpkin patch, or visiting the petting zoo's resident quadrupeds and bipeds. When the sun sets and the weather turns crisp, the staff keeps crowds cozy by selling warm treats—including fresh donuts and apple cider—and by building roaring bonfires.
Healing Massage Therapy's staff remedies bodily maladies by drawing on orthopedic and medical massage training. Before each appointment, the team assesses the client to discover which massage style will be most beneficial. The studio's massage therapists draw on myofascial massage, trigger-point therapy, and neuromuscular techniques. Massage recipients stretch out on a heated hydraulic table, whose soft surface permeates bodies with soothing warmth, like a waterbed full of chicken-noodle soup, and can decompress spines into a more malleable state. Isolated stretching techniques then help to improve range of motion in woebegone joints. The staff kneads problem areas with surgical precision, hoping to decrease clients' long-term need for medical attention. After the massage, the muscle technicians share their findings and advice on general well being.
