Without horses, salt licks would only dissolve in rainstorms and in the mouths of salt-deficient humans seeking to restore their serum-sodium levels to at least 135 mEq/L. Celebrate our hoofed counterparts with today's Groupon: for $18, you and a friend each get a one-hour horseback ride (up to a $36 value) at Pine River Stables in St. Clair.
Pine River Stables sprawls along 100 acres of outdoor riding space. The one-hour guided ride for two lets reluctant riders and adept jockeys alike hop aboard their choice of Pine River Stables' sleek stallions, such as the 75% cacao-colored Toni or the muscular-forearmed Benny, and explore the area’s pastures and wooded trails. Gallop down a small hill built on a heap of old refrigerators, hurtle across an open meadow, or traverse the borders of Pine River Stables' creek to peek down at its wild inhabitants. Pine River Stables is open April through November but is closed on Wednesdays, in the event of bad weather, and on Horse Christmas.
Rates at Pine River Stables vary throughout the week. Plan your trip ahead of time to get the most value out of your Groupon.
