Horses are some of the most perceptive animals, as evidenced by the saying, "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't explain his intimate knowledge of your childhood fears." Tap into equine insight with today's Groupon from Carousel Horse Farm in Casco. Choose between two options:
- For $25, you get a beginner trail ride (a $50 value).
- For $39, you get a beginner trail ride for two people (a $100 value).
Carousel Horse Farm's equine aficionados tend to a herd of saddled companions as they lead adventures over sandy trails, backdropped by breathtaking views of snow-capped mountaintops. During 45- to 60-minute beginner trail rides groups of four maneuver through picturesque landscapes, letting passengers enjoy the gentle clip-clop of hooves as they recall the days of cowboy hats, jangling spurs, and corncob coffeemakers. Knowledgeable guides shepherd participants across scenic pastures, through verdant woods, and over babbling brooks, offering advice and demonstrating best horsemanship practices to guarantee a safe ride. While admiring nature and rap battling to the cadence of the horses' hooves, riders also admire the native fauna, such as fox, deer, and turkey, which frequent Carousel's well-trod routes.
Participants must be aged 6 or older, and must wear long pants and closed-toe shoes. Helmets may be brought from home or can be provided by Carousel Horse Farm. All riders or their legal guardians will be required to read and sign a liability release.
