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.

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.
