Specializing in APHA and AQHA horses, the breeders at Coquat Ranch extend their equine knowledge to the general public through lessons, birthday parties, and trail rides across their wildlife-rich property. Beginner lessons acquaint novices with safe practices and the essentials of riding, centering on mounting, grooming, walking, and other basic topics. Building on this foundation, intermediate and advanced lessons delve into more advanced activities, such as moving laterally and riding around obstacles.

Once comfortable in the saddle, rider can sign up for a trail ride across the ranch's hundreds of acres, where they can spot wildlife ranging from deer and wild hogs to sandhill cranes amid the salt water marshes and brush country. Young riders can also enjoy time with animals through birthday and pony painting parties, when they'll have the chance to cover horses in non-toxic paint and ask for their definition of art.

In the eight years since the start of Local Furniture Outlet, the cherished baby business of Mr. Aaron Masterson has grown up fast?from a 2,000-square-foot metal warehouse to four locations and more than 80,000 combined square feet of furniture. But the success didn't go to Aaron?s head. The proud father still traverses showrooms in casual flip-flops, enforcing a no-competition policy so that loyal staff members don?t feel pressured to make a quota. The stripped-down showrooms allow for lower price tags on direct-from-manufacturer brands such as Ashley, Simmons, and Crown Mark. Patrons are invited to peruse dining-room, living-room, and bedroom sets?or ?kick the tires,? as Aaron puts it?without the pushy-push of larger retailers, who may use turkey legs to reward team members for sales.

Mary Helen Johnston of M&J Photography strives to capture all aspects of her subjects’ personalities, nabbing senior portraits, wedding snapshots, family profiles, and sports-team photos. Before shoots, the photographer guides clients through a complimentary consultation over the phone or in the studio, during which models-to-be can plot hair, makeup, and cravat placement. Helen's photo shoots typically last from 30 to 60 minutes, and outdoor shoots usually take place two hours before sunset, when natural light is at its most flattering. M&J Photography can also take motion pictures with an array of videography services that capture images and emotional tenor alike, thereby creating a keepsake more potent than cave hieroglyphics depicting a prehistoric wedding reception.

The floor technicians at Pro-Kleen smarten up shag and refine tile with a combination of industrial-age steam power and cutting-edge technology. After a free estimate nails down a firm flat rate, berber inspectors put rugs through an eight-step process that includes inspection and pretreating stains. A truck-mounted Rotovac 360 machine dissolves soil, grease, and spots with 180-degree water before a high-powered vacuum extracts the mix, leaving behind soft, allergen-free fibers and terrified Lego people. The process removes most of the water it uses to saturate the fibers, reducing drying time to a few hours. All jobs are guaranteed and backed up with the promise to reclean any unsatisfactory jobs or refund the total cost.

Bruno’s Bath House elevates the dog-boarding experience by housing pups inside plush suites that will remind them of home. Two times a day, room service peeks in, checking to make sure beds are comfy and bowls are brimming with filtered water.

This attentive treatment carries over into Bruno’s Spaw, where dogs receive baths with plush add-ons such as aromatherapy, massage, and Pawdicures. Edible and wearable doggie accessories are also available at Bruno’s Bistro and Boutique.
