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. The words safety and education are also used to sum up the company's mission statement. Understandably, Tim has plenty of experience in both safety and education, having personally taught his wife, son, and daughter to safely use firearms. Along with his fellow instructors, Tim extends that expertise to the general public during classes such as Introduction to Handgun Shooting. Tim and his team also operate a full-service firearms store staffed with experts to help people safely and confidently enjoy the sport. The pistol rentals include Glock pistols, M&P handguns, Sig Sauer pistols of different calibers, and AR-15 rifles. The range itself has stall dividers in shooting lanes for added safety.
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.

Hunters Pointe Farm takes advantage of its 20 acres of picturesque farmland, using it as the backdrop for teaching proper horse riding. The farm is helmed by Robin Lawrence, a trainer with 35 years of experience who’s in the process of receiving an official United States Equestrian Federation judge’s card. Here, equestrians of all experiences and backgrounds can learn more about the sport on multiple trails, two jumping field, or inside an indoor arena. Lessons range from introductory sessions that go over the equine basics to more advanced elements of horsemanship, such how to neigh a top 40 single.
