Lots of young girls play with toy ponies; Clarissa Czuprynski got to interact with the real thing. The Prestige Equine head trainer began showing and training horses when she was 12 years old. Since then, she has developed a specialty in working with young horses, especially ones young enough to believe they can be one of Santa's reindeer. With Prestige Equine, she’s teamed up with barn staffers Shelby North and Samantha Draper to offer training and showing services for all horse breeds. The trio regularly competes in Western and English events, such as AQHA and APHA breed shows, a practice that keeps them sharp for the group and private horse-riding lessons they lead. These lessons take place on experienced lesson horses at a facility that features sand and dirt arenas, a round pen, a track, an onsite veterinarian's office, and 60 box stalls for boarding.

The creators of Paint Nite started their on-location art parties as a creative alternative to a night out with friends. Inspiring people to drink creatively at bars in more than 80 worldwide cities, their events have been touted by New York Magazine as the Best Friend Date and profiled by The Daily Beast. During each two-hour session, participants create a 16x20? reproduction of the night's chosen artwork while sipping a beer, mixed drink, or glass of wine purchased from the bar. Paint Nite provides all other materials, including paint, brushes, canvases, easels, and aprons. Local artists guide participants through each step of the painting process from mixing colors to brush stroke and encouraging creative expression in a supportive, positive atmosphere.

Every summer, the sprawling fields and winding horse trails of the peaceful Walnut Grove Park undergo a transformation. The clinks and clanks of a towering stage being built permeate the soundscape, taking prominence over the usual noises of bird chirps and rustling leaves. The aromas of tender barbeque meats fill the air, and droves of music-lovers, families, and groups of friends flock to the park with their lawn chairs and beach blankets in tow. Once the crowd has arrived, top local musicians take to the stage to perform lively rock and blues songs as servers top off plastic cups with ice-cold brews. The normally serene park is now the bustling scene of the weekend-long City of San Marcos Rock, Blues & BBQ Festival, which?like the Lincoln statue?s brief sentience and subsequent leg stretch?only happens once a year.

Brought together by their passion for craft beer and sharing it with others, Rip Current Brewing owners Paul Sangster and Guy Shobe have created a roster of 15-20 rotating craft beers designed to challenge and expand current brewing trends, earning the brewery a BeerAdvocate score of 95. Each coastal-themed brew draws inspiration from a different American or European-style brew. This freewheeling experimentation results in small batches that range from the hoppy and intense In The Curl Double IPA to the malty Rescue Buoy Russian Imperial Stout to the light and crisp Paddling Out Pale West Coast-Style Pale Ale and the best-selling Lupulin Lust IPA.

As a high school student, Freddi Pakier's favorite breakfast item was a candy bar. However, as the school days dragged on, her sugar highs inevitably gave way to lethargy and mood swings. She didn't realize the correlation until she was in her 20s, which caused her to completely change her diet—a change that she credits with giving her an abundance of energy and a more positive outlook. Freddi now shares her story and tips as a health coach at Meals that Heal, introducing students to holistic techniques and the tactics of nutritional science so that they can craft healthful dishes on their own. Her recipes also mesh well with weight-loss plans, helping clients to shed pounds without counting calories or removing their solid gold shoes. Students can choose from a variety of class options that highlight diverse topics such as travel meals, vegetarian nutrition, detoxifying internals, preventing disease, and strengthening bones. All sessions are safe for those avoiding gluten.
