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 this Groupon.

Trail rides take participants on a guided tour along winding Hill Country paths, allowing them to breathe in the wilderness air and catch glimpses of wildlife. Guides train their groups in basic riding techniques and outfit horses with Western bridles, harnesses, and fitted stetson hats. Upon return to the ranch, participants can work with guides to clean their horses and lead them back to the stables.
Hollow Tree Ranch
The horses at Hollow Tree Ranch trot around more than 20 grassy acres laced with streams, dotted with leafy trees, and imbued with wild country atmosphere. Here, skilled instructors guide beginner students during horseback-riding lessons. They place their pupils on the horse right at the beginning for hands-on instruction in saddling up and controlling a steed through trotting, weaving between obstacles, and riding over a log trail. They also combine equestrian training with group roping lessons, where they demonstrate how to coil, aim, and throw a lasso at targets such as an orange cone, a ground dummy, and a high-school bully. They run a one-week intensive day camp in horseback riding, tacking, and care, and regularly use equine therapy to instill communication skills, core muscle strength, and confidence in young people with disabilities.
