Although they also teach riders the skills and confidence to climb into the saddle, White Horse Equestrian's first mission has always been to rescue horses. Frequently saving colts and fillies from racetracks, the staff aims not only to give them a better life but also a purpose. During 30-minute riding lessons, pupils mount western saddles to take to the nearby trails or get their chops in the riding ring.
Inflatable bounce houses, chalkboard rooms, and arcade games comprise The Jump Palace's indoor playground for kids. This safely contained facility presents children with opportunities to run, jump, and play to their hearts' content without worrying about breaking a vase or scaring the pet goldfish. The Jump Palace features a main playground for kids and a smaller one for toddlers. Parents, meanwhile, can entertain themselves with flat-screen TVs and free WiFi. There's also a restuarant that serves pizza, wings, and cupcakes from D'Angelos Delights.
The soft pop of clubs connecting with golf balls drifts across The Range’s three locations. From heated, covered tee areas at the Boston Heights outpost, the spheres soar across bottle-green expanses towards laser-measured targets. Valley View’s 80 hitting stations provide ample room for mobs taking a break from chasing unnatural creations of science, and a mini-golf course sharpens putting skills. The outfit replaces the entire fleet of range balls each year, so golfers rarely tee up a misshapen sphere. Lights shine from above to allow nighttime repetitions, and bunkers and practice greens enable focused work on the short game. At a pro shop, steely bouquets of clubs from Callaway and Top Flite stand in corners, overseen by trainers and staff members.
Climbers stand at the base of the textured plywood and rock surfaces that climb the walls of Kendall Cliffs' 7,000-foot space and picture themselves reaching the summit?a 35-foot high arch that reaches across to the opposite wall. Designed by Nicros, the facility presents varying gravitational challenges for scalers to mount, from tackling the bouldering cave to tickling the bouldering cave's petroglyphs. Intrepid and experienced instructors lead climbing classes, calibrated for varying skill levels and covering topics such as knot tying, belaying, bouldering, and sport routes.
Yoga Lounge was founded as a studio where yogis new and old could grow into their yoga practice. This explains the range of class styles that they offer: restorative yoga gently heals achy muscles, while challenging power flow whittles muscles and hones concentration. Over time, those who stick with the practice report a slew of health benefits, including improved flexibility body-wide, increased strength, and a deep-breathing technique that helps when challenging a dolphin to a diving contest.
