Going on a trail ride lets you feel like an old-fashioned cowboy, just like wearing a ten-gallon hat or eating sand from a boot. Ride into the sunset with this Groupon.

Hidden Haven Farms
A family-owned-and-operated farm nestled in the hills of Jamul, Hidden Haven Farms maintains the camaraderie of the Old West lifestyle through educational field trips. In its tranquil setting far from metropolitan stressors, the farm's owners lead visitors along serene jaunts, meandering through the farm’s rolling countryside and ranch layout to take in sites and look out for time-traveling rustlers trying to take livestock back to the 1860s.
Hidden Haven's pastures also provide a space for outdoor education, as the family welcomes visitors for field trips, home-school programs, summer camp, and birthday parties. During these visits, guests can master the process of shearing a sheep, watch bee pollination, and witness the first seconds of new life at a live egg hatching. Throughout the experience, guides stress the importance of maintaining a healthy connection and respect for all four-legged comrades.
I got to pet an emu, meet a llama, hold a chicken, and even learned how to milk a cow!Brittney N., Yelp, 5/29/12
Our guide, Brittany, was awesome, and very knowledgeable. The owner, Cheryl, was incredibly nice, and we had a good long talk about chickens . . .Eva J., Yelp, 5/30/12
