  • The Great Escape Mustang Sanctuary
    It's often easy to forget that humans aren't the only beings on earth in need of sanctuary; sometimes, animals need it, too. Set across 900 rolling, scenic acres, The Great Escape Mustang Sanctuary is dedicated to rescuing, training, and providing sanctuary for wild horses and burros, specifically American and Spanish Mustangs. At the facility, these magnificent animals roam just as they would in the wild, sharing land and closet space with other herds and feeding off the greenery that surrounds them. But just because these horses are in protection doesn't mean they're off limits to the public. As part of its mission to educate the public on the issues surrounding wild horses, The Great Escape provides visitors with the chance to photograph the mustangs, interact directly with them, and learn about their stories as well as the historical significance of certain breeds.

  • Arapahoe Philharmonic
    For nearly 60 years, the Arapahoe Philharmonic has played the classical music of historical composers and modern musicians to audiences around Denver. The orchestra's Spring Pops Gala will feature the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein, the American songwriting duo whose musicals, including The Sound of Music and The King and I, have won a slew of Tony, Oscar, and Grammy awards. VIP ticket holders can slip in early for a Two Rivers wine tasting at 6:00 p.m., enjoying sips of vino and a variety of hors d’oeuvres. Curiosity-seekers can caravan a short safari through the animal- and plant-life exhibits of The Wildlife Experience museum, taking care to park impatient camels outside the venue before settling back into the reserved-seating area for a sonic adventure with the orchestra.

  • SkateStart
    SkateStart owner Patrick O'Toole started his skating career as many people do: by falling down constantly while skating a faulty board. He wanted to spend time with his skateboarding cousins, so his father bought him a generic, unresponsive deck from a big-box store. It barely rolled and always cancelled their playtime last minute to watch soap operas. His junky equipment and lack of knowledge kept him from keeping up with his peers. It wasn't until his father surprised him with a safe, professional skate set that his cousins finally slowed down and began teaching him the ins and outs of thrashing cement waves. Now in his 20s, Patrick makes it his professional mission to teach the next generation of skaters the proper techniques they need to enjoy the sport. He and his team of certified instructors use his patent-pending skateboard system that shows beginners where to place their feet to push off, perform an ollie, and avoid tripping a board's self-destruct countdown. In addition to imparting fundamental skills, their lessons also build up the confidence necessary to tackle more complex maneuvers.

  • Minturn Anglers
    Minturn Anglers, operating for over eight years, conveniently has the Eagle River running right behind the main fly-fishing shop. Not only is the location ultra-convenient for trying out new rods and reels, but aside from that, nothing can stand between these folks and a catchable fish. This holds especially true for head instructor Erin Hale, whose passion for the sport has taken him all across the world. On those occasions when Erin and his team aren't actually fishing, they lead weekend fly-fishing schools that introduce new students to the sport. Designed for the total beginner or those who want to enhance their existing skills, these classes include lessons on tying different knots, reading the water, and rigging.

  • Pickering Equestrians
    Jessica Pickering brings more than 12 years of horse-showing experience to each hunter, jumper, and eventing lesson she conducts. Using the tenets of dressage as an overarching theme, Jessica starts students off with flat lessons that focus on horizontal riding techniques before moving on to vertical jumps and activating the horse wings for aerial flights. Once students are comfortable galloping with their steed, they can begin jumping and competing. Each class takes place on the saddles of Venus and Miss Roulette, two highly trained horses that are great for beginners and kids.
