The Deal

  • $89 for three 45-minute semi-private horseback-riding lessons (a $195 value)

Instructors lead semi-private lessons that teach the fundamentals of horseback-riding. Classes begin with 15 minutes of on-the-ground tasks, including grooming the horse and learning about maintenance. Students then saddle up for 45 minutes of riding time. As they practice the correct postures for equitation and balance, their muscles strive to keep them stabilized, imparting a full-body workout.

Equestricise

Cherylin Von Aldenbruck has no treadmills or weights at her outdoor "gym." The equipment is leather instead of lead, and your workout partner isn't a beefy personal trainer—it's a horse. After realizing that sitting atop a horse requires muscles to continually stabilize and balance the body, Cherylin founded Equestricise as an alternative fitness venue for anyone who's curious about horseback-riding. Each of her lessons now serve as a strengthening workout for the core and limbs.

Cherylin and her team of certified instructors aren't only concerned with toning physiques, though. They also teach groups how to care for the horses, tack, and stables. Classes cover disciplines from basic equitation to hunt seat skills, and accommodate riders of all experience levels, from beginners to those who can steer a horse blindfolded, even when the horse is also blindfolded.
