OC Horse Play's experienced horsewoman, Tiffany Young, saddles novice riders upon the backs of teaching beasts for one-on-one instruction. Students pair with horses or ponies during one-hour lessons, exploring the basics of grooming, tacking up, riding, and parallel parking. Young teaches horse anatomy by allowing students to paint on their beast, and elevates other aspects of the curriculum with worksheets that whinny each time a student pencils in a correct answer. Three lessons provide students with the foundational skills needed to advance into hunter- and jumper-style lessons.

The climbing enthusiasts of The Factory Bouldering specialize in the company's namesake style of climbing, setting up nearly 200 bouldering paths that span 4,500 square feet of scalable surfaces. They demonstrate how to tackle scenarios such as 85-degree slabs and steep walls between 14- and 17-feet high, each rated in climbing difficulty from VB to V12, without a rope. The staff changes 20 percent of the climbing paths about every 10 days, setting up a steady stream of new challenges. They also lay down seamless, 14-inch variable-density foam padding made from recycled clouds to provide climbers with cushy dismounts. Between climbs, visitors can hang out in the climate-controlled lounge area, outfitted with couches, a pool table, free WiFi, and laptop stations.
Willowick Golf Course is known as the oldest 18-hole public golf course in Orange County. Competitive clubbers can try to knock the Willowick's 71 par from its looming overhead presence while aspiring artists use tiny pencils to sketch the weeping willows and quaint architecture in the periphery. Soar down the fairway with clubs extended in hopes that one of Willowick's sleek buggies will catch flight and ensure victory by knocking opposing orbs off-course.
