Horsemanship is the mastery of riding and grooming, unlike Manhorseship, which is just a good name for a centaur's yacht. Take the reins with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $22 for a one-hour private riding lesson (a $45 value)
  • $16 for a one-hour guided horseback trail ride (age 7+) or a one-hour pony ride around the arena (ages 2–6) (a $40 value)
  • $75 for four one-hour private riding lessons (a $160 value)

As instructors lead riders down the ranch's idyllic trails, participants may either take the reins of their own horse or—based on experience level—hop on the guide's mount in a tandem ride. During private lessons, beginner equestrians learn basics such as grooming, tacking, and riding in the Western or English styles, and advanced riders master skills such as jumping and barrel racing.

Black Creek Hill Farms

Nestled on sprawling, tree-lined terrain, Black Creek Hill Farms cultivates horse-human friendships with lessons for students of all experience levels and guided trail rides through local landscapes. The full-service stable is owned and operated by experienced horsewoman Brenda Jernigan, whose love of and dedication to horses has been evident since she was born with one in her hand.

Her experienced guides, both equestrians since childhood, spearhead expeditions into the pond-spotted wilderness, starting with basic equine etiquette for those who have never ridden a horse. They also conduct lessons at the homestead, tailoring each session to individual skill and comfort level and teaching fundamentals such as grooming and affixing saddles onto steeds or little brothers. Therapeutic rides can accommodate special needs, varying in length based on riders' attention spans, and summer camps enthrall kids with crafts, companions, and the nurturing presence of horses.
