Together, Dalton Budd and Kellie Wendling have won more than 35 national championships—an impressive showing that translates into insightful lessons for the new generations of riders at Select Show Horses. And though Dalton and Kellie’s instructorship has resulted in victories for riders and horses at all levels, they still know how to start small, guiding beginners as they confidently command their newfound, hoofed companions. During the stable’s 60-minute lessons, the duo focuses on the disciplines of saddle seat, hunt seat, and western riding, alotting 10 minutes at the beginning and end of each lesson for horse care and the traditional swap of pen-pal addresses between the horse and rider.

Tim Tomich, the force behind Tim's Shooting Academy of Westfield, shows his passion for shooting sports by offering the community a range of gun safety programs, classes, lessons, and also sponsors a chapter of The Well Armed Woman.

More than 17 acres of lush pasture skirt the facilities at Sterling Shields Stables and Riding Academy, a horseback riding school aimed at beginner to intermediate riders. The school’s instructors place an emphasis on proper form, starting pupils out in the English saddle to learn balance and fundamentals. From there, students progress at their own pace in disciplines such as English riding, hunter/jumper, Western pleasure, and dressage.

Sterling Shields' facilities are carefully designed to ensure comfort year-round. During each lesson, parents can watch their child's progress on monitors in a viewing room that also doubles as a coffee bar. A warm, insulated barn keeps riders toasty as they prepare their mounts in winter. During the summer, the academy hosts horse camps for all levels of experience, during which participants attend daily lessons, learn proper horsemanship, and study the parts of a horse to gain a knowledge base for future veterinary careers and Jeopardy rounds.

It’s hard to imagine a trainer more dedicated to fitness than Josh Kuklak, the owner of Survival Fitness Gym. An ACE-certified personal trainer, Josh holds state records in powerlifting on the bench-press and deadlift platforms, and has also competed in hockey, tennis, karate, and weight training. Along with Diana Fisbeck, also an ACE-certified trainer, he leads boot camp-style workouts that call upon muscle confusion—through constantly varied routines—to promote building strength and melting fat.

Their boot camps fuse cardio, resistance training, and plyometrics into workouts that change every day to prevent workout burnout. Leaving treadmills and weight machines behind, the sessions incorporate a slew of nontraditional fitness equipment. Students might flip oversize tires and hang from gymnastics rings one day, and then heave sledgehammers and box heavy bags until they cry uncle the next. Their basic-training class focuses on core work and endurance, and strength training blends elements of powerlifting, bodybuilding, and functional training to pack on muscle and annihilate fat. The fitness duo also leads personal-training sessions, motivating clients to reach their goals and harmonizing with them during workout songs.

When designer Robert Trent Jones Jr. made Prairie View Golf Club his first Indiana project in 1997, he peppered 18 holes across 206 acres of natural beauty. His design hugs the White River, which rings the course on three sides, but only interferes with shots at four holes. Native grasses trim the entire perimeter of the former soybean- and cornfields, while oak, sycamore beech, and cottonwood trees surround the back nine holes. But the natural obstacles pale in comparison to the manmade impediments – 90 sand traps, including one that stretches 135 yards, make the par-72 course a challenge for even the most avid golfer. Creative flagstick positioning invites visitors to modify their technique for approach shots, with an emphasis on precision rather than power, much like surgically extracting a swallowed engagement ring.

For some added muscle on the course, patrons can practice swings at golf lessons or map out a plan of attack over breakfast at The Albatross Grille, which overlooks the course.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, Par 72 Course * Total length of 7,000 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 74.5 from the back tees * Course slope of 138 from the back tees * Four sets of tees per hole

The staff members at Muldoon's attribute their success to the craic, a term that they say describes the atmosphere of fun and fellowship often found in a true Irish pub. That laid-back vibe has paid off: Muldoon's has been crowned Best Neighborhood Bar by CityVoter for four years running. Washed down with an extensive beer selection, the hearty food menu stocks such Irish classics as shepherd's pie, Irish beef-and-potato stew with Guinness broth, and hand-breaded fried-cod fish ‘n’ chips. Chefs also prepare more local favorites, such as a classic Midwest breaded tenderloin that, in accordance with tradition, looks kind of like Abraham Lincoln's profile if you squint. Meanwhile, guests can cozy up by the fireplace to listen to live music or admire the antique cash register at the bar.
