Let's Go Places: Get back on the horse

The days of getting around on horseback are long gone, but that doesn't mean you can't ride for fun! Deerfield Farm in Preston offers training lessons for the whole family, and they also provide dog behavior training in their Canine Connections Program. Whether you're aspiring to join a collegiate equestrian team, want to learn how to ride a horse for the first time, or are looking for some help to stop your dog from barking too much at home, Deerfield Farm has something for you.

Horseback riding is a wonderful outdoor activity that can be done with social distancing to help prevent COVID-19. Instructors at Deerfield are taking proper safety precautions during their lessons so you can learn and get out there on your own.

When you're ready to hit the road, hop into the 2021 Toyota Highlander Platinum, the premium technology model of the Highlander line.

The pinnacle of driving technology

The Highlander Platinum makes driving simpler than ever. You can look forward to features that will change your driving experience instantly, including Qi-compatible wireless phone charging, a digital rearview mirror, and Driver Easy Speak, which utilizes a microphone in the overhead console to broadcast your voice to speakers in the back.

The available Front and Rear Parking Assist with Automatic Braking will help prevent fender benders. The Bird's Eye View Camera uses four exterior cameras to provide gridlines that help you maneuver around obstacles. Perimeter Scan, 360-degree Overhead View, and Curb View make your life even easier by showing you potential obstacles around your car.

The special parking and perimeter scanning features appear on the massive 12.3-inch touchscreen display on the center console. That touchscreen is also your connection to Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Amazon Alexa. 11 JBL speakers with a subwoofer and amplifier elevate your entertainment to the max and never run out of charge on your devices with five USB ports.

Inside the Platinum

A 7-inch LCD Multi-Information Display shows you the odometer, fuel economy, speed, telephone information, and fuel economy right in front of you behind the steering wheel. As you drive, take advantage of four different modes, including Normal, Sport, Eco, and Snow mode, allowing you to adjust to whatever comes your way.

The massive interior of the Highlander Platinum seats seven passengers, with a second row of fold-down captain's chairs and a third row of fold-flat reclining seats. The first- and second-row seats are leather-trimmed and heated, and the front seats also come with ventilation. The driver gets the best of all worlds with a heated steering wheel, too. Everyone can stay comfortable with a three-zone climate control system for all three rows of the Highlander.

Protecting you wherever you go

Safety is standard on all Toyota vehicles. The Highlander Platinum's Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+ package relies on intuitive technology to provide a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Road Sign Assist, Automatic High Beams, and Lane Tracing Assist.

On Platinum models, the side mirrors alert you of vehicles approaching in your blind spots, fold inward for those tight parking spots, and tilt downward to increase visibility when reversing.

So, what are you waiting for? Your next adventure awaits! The 2021 Toyota Highlander Platinum starts at $46,965 MSRP.
