Head trainer Jacki Larisch passes along an abiding passion for horsemanship to each student that she works with at Creekside Farm. Jacki inherited her love of horses from her parents, themselves International Federation for Equestrian Sports (FEI) level competitors, and it continued through her four years as a member of The Ohio State University Hunt Seat Equestrian team. Today, Jacki shares her experience in proper English hunter and jumping technique in lessons that aim to create knowledgeable, well-rounded equestrians even if their previous experience only involves hours spent on coin-operated stallions outside grocery stores.

With its cozy decor and absence of ominous cages, The Dog Waggin’s welcoming facility gives busy pet owners peace of mind as their pups comfortably socialize and play. The 4,000-square-foot digs house a play room with pooch playground equipment—including slides and tunnels—a relaxing play room—characterized by fluffy pet beds—and a backyard, where dogs can caper about or stretch out and bronze their bods in time for swimsuit season. Pups are free to rest and play as they see fit with their fellow boarders, all under staff supervision during daytime outings and overnight stays. The canine caretakers also offer a number of other services, including walking, in-home sitting, and training from owner and certified dog trainer Lisa Harvey.
