For more than 30 years, Walnut Way Farm has taught saddle-seat horseback-riding lessons for riders of all experience levels, with an emphasis on human and horse safety. For horse pilots' first equine engagements, an experienced instructor will cover safety basics, steering, control, rider posture, and rearing up in front of sunsets. Saddle-seat riding, a subsection of English style, shows off the horse’s confident high trot and creates a solid riding foundation to which riders may add other styles. Since horses play cribbage on Sundays, lessons run Monday–Saturday.
Tucked away on the owner's 25-acre farm just outside Louisville, Utopia Animal Care welcomes dogs of all breeds and sizes to a loving home away from home. During daycare stays or slumber parties, pups can be found romping about the 2-acre, fully fenced outdoor play yard or snuggled inside the cage-free facility, where each canine suite is outfitted with organic snacks, fresh water, and cable TV. To restore that new-dog smell, Utopia's licensed groomer manages manes of all textures and lengths with breed-specific cuts and brush outs and helps pups to unwind from long hours dreaming of chasing squirrels with canine massage.
Amid the lush hush of surrounding woods, Treats Pet Resort boards canine and feline guests, pampering them with modern amenities and 24-hour care. Check pooches into a suite for a two-day play date involving naps in toddler- and twin-sized beds. Leisurely television viewing keeps critters occupied on rainy days, and ceiling fans whirl above to cool chic kitties who refuse to remove their fur coats during their relaxing weekend stay. Large outdoor patios connected by pet doors let furry friends roam freely, and loving hands lead unlimited playtime and long walks along imaginary beaches.
The experienced, kind staff at The Pet School and Hotel comfort animal guests with private rooms, deft grooming, and training built around positive reinforcement. Each dog that vacations at the Pet Hotel lounges in 36 square feet of climate-controlled space and heads outside five to six times daily to play and practice poses for upcoming calendars. Cats frolic together in a spacious rec room filled with toys, hiding holes, and black holes to absorb their insatiable curiosity while birds nest at the private residence of the owner, who has more than 20 years of experience caring for exotic avians. Dedicated to canines and felines, the Pet Salon's groomers condition coats and skin with oatmeal, protein, and flea baths and specialize in the FURminator technique that clears out matted undercoats to reduce shedding.
