Since founding Clay Hill Stables in 1964, British Horse Society?certified instructor Emmie Prettyman has passed her vast equine expertise on to legions of horses and their riders through a variety of services. Emmie captains a team of instructors certified to teach the English style of riding as well as administer first aid and CPR, ensuring safe and sound lessons for students as young as 6. Beginner classes work to establish fundamentals both on and off the saddle, including riding positions and basic grooming and tacking. Once riders have demonstrated proficiency at the paces of walk, trot, and canter, they may be eligible for the jumping work in the intermediate/advanced class, where they build on skills with more intricate flatwork and jumping exercises, as well as have the opportunity for trail rides and horse shows.

“We teach you the job” may as well be Atius Technology Institute’s motto. Their instructors, most of whom have more than 10 years of experience in information technology, help students gain practical knowledge that can help them hit the ground running as soon as they get hired. During a variety of courses, including Security+, Cisco ICND1 and 2, and Windows Active Directory, instructors not only prep students for their IT certifications, but also for on-the-job proficiency in a variety of IT fields. The institute also doubles as a mobile testing center where students can take their certification exams, then walk to an adjacent room to ask their favorite teacher for a gold star sticker.

Wheels screech to a halt for photo ops in front of Lanham Skating Center's focal point: a mural of a red carpet illuminated by blazing flashbulbs. Skaters carry their celebrity strut into the music-filled rink, where they zoom to their hearts' content wearing skates they rented or stole from a '50s-era waitress. They can also star in Learn to Skate classes or birthday parties in a private room stocked with ice cream and soda. Visitors consume similar noshes at the snack bar before returning to rolling.
