Russ Bond knows a thing or two about go-karts; after all, he's dedicated his career to them. As own of Canadian Karting League, he offers kids and adults the opportunity to take to the tarmac with race-prepared karts, comprehensive safety training, and a battalion of professional mechanics at their backs. Russ explains to motoringtv.com that through years of training and racing cars professionally, he “always wanted to give back … so kids could get involved in karting,” In addition to boosting adrenalin and making for memorable afternoons, karting can teach kids and tweens how to pass other cars, handle turns, and harmonize by punching their horns. Giving kids the experience of maintaining their own kart “can only help them when they get a licence,” Russ says.
Business retreats don't usually involve go-kart races, but the entertainment emporium's Stoffel Drive headquarters rolls out corporate events that swap staid luncheons for velocity-filled tournaments. And the establishment welcomes more than just businesspeople. Guests of all ages and careers can join in all the activities—such as mini golf—and whip around the the outdoor track, reaching speeds of up to 45 km/h, a pace eclipsed only by a cheetah on a treadmill.

Destiny Equestrian blankets an 86-acre stretch of countryside populated by dense woods, hills, a racetrack, and grassy paddocks. In other words, it's a natural setting for teaching natural horsemanship. The outfit's instructors use the bucolic setting and its indoor and outdoor riding rings to coach students on the riding styles of dressage, hunter/jumper, eventing, and the basic Western seat. Once riders know what they're doing without consulting the Post-it notes all over the horse's mane, they can direct their steed onto the numerous riding trails that branch outward from the complex. When visitors return to the grounds, however, they can also participate in camps, birthday parties, and horse shows.
The Dakota Ranch lays claim to 25 acres of land, interrupted only by a network of snaking trails. Preferable to the green screens used by other ranches, the expanse serves as a backdrop for horseback-riding lessons. From trail odysseys for riders of all skill levels to western-inspired lessons in the ring, nature abounds in all directions. The scenery also plays host to a variety of special events, including barbecues, campfires, and Cowgirl Weekends, complete with a massage therapist or aesthetician upon request.
The first question the instructors at Legacy Equestrian ask any student is, "Why do you want to ride?" As far as they're concerned, there's no wrong answer. They use a student's response to help develop a unique lesson plan for riders aged 4 and older, and they aim to make to starting easy. Legacy Equestrian has helmets for students to borrow, as well as plenty of horses eager to be ridden stabled in its barns or disguised as motorcycles in the parking area.
