For centuries, horseshoes have been associated with good fortune, which is why homeowners hang them over doorways and brides lob them at groups of their single friends. Get hitched with this Groupon.
$65 for Fence and Fields Ride for Two (a $130 Value)
After getting acquainted with horses during a 25-minute mini lesson in the arena, leisurely 35- to 40-minute trail rides lead guests through rolling pastures and historic forests. This Groupon is valid for riders 10 and older; children younger than 10 (or less than 54" tall) have the option to stay in the arena with an instructor for a one-on-one riding lesson.
Rocking M Ranch
Crystal and Johnny Mindedahl host riders of all ages and abilities on Rocking M Ranch’s 60 acres of rolling pastures, beyond which lie miles of historical forests and trails. The ranch takes extra care to comfort its horses, and neighs of contentment echo through the 14-stall barn and across the competition-sized arena where students can refine their horsemanship throughout the year. Instructors tailor each lesson to accommodate individual goals, helping beginners gain comfort and advanced students work toward competitions with tutorials in grooming, safety, saddling, and horse anatomy. In addition to lessons, Rocking M Ranch regularly hosts day camps for children and teens. These camps pique kids’ interests with riding lessons, games, and traditional farm activities, such as playing with pet goats and churning butter from an original Nintendo.
