Mounted police opt for equine transportation so they don’t have to deal with the squad car's wailing thirst for gas and justice. Avoid similar automotive appetites with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a one-hour horseback trail ride from Equine Escapes in Issaquah (a $60 value). Although technical experience is not required, riders should be capable of basic techniques, such as turning and stopping.

The seasoned gauchos at Equine Escapes lead small groups of riders across scenic wooded terrain during one-hour trail rides. Before each ride’s departure, four-legged counterparts are introduced to guests, who are encouraged to relax and develop an open rapport with their horse through a complicated system of tongue clicks. Once comfortable, jockeys will follow guides onto the trails, where placid bends and a gentle hill grade volunteer a pleasant framework for tranquil jaunts and meditative horse-human mind melding. The one-hour trail ride gives equinauts a chance to experience the majesty of the leisurely gallop in an environment as natural to the horse as wearing a sombrero.

Additionally, Equine Escapes offers to protect brain boxes with riding helmets provided upon request but also spurs visitors to tote various other items, such as water and a camera. To ensure punctual departure, participants should arrive 5–10 minutes early. The meeting point for each ride is subject to change based on trail conditions, expected weather, and impromptu neigh-offs between guides.
