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 today's Groupon: for $20, you get a one-hour guided trail ride at 49 Rivers Ranch (a $40 value) on Rural Road.
The family-operated facilities at 49 Rivers Ranch care for horses and riders in quiet, grass pastures and indoor facilities. One-hour trail rides begin in the indoor arena, allowing riders to break conversational ice with their assigned equines and receive basic handling instructions. A guided, outdoor excursion with up to four humans takes mustang mounters throughout the 160 rolling green acres of ranch, far from the highway's noises, odours, and plodding Autobots in a fresh, country setting. Riders are matched to select stalwart steeds based on size and ability.
49 Rivers Ranch
At 49 Rivers Ranch, horses leisurely graze on 160 acres of natural-grass pasture as the farm’s two young ranch hands tend to a 30-stall barn and indoor riding arena. Against this idyllic backdrop, owner DJ Dale sparks riders’ passion for equestrianism with Western and English lessons and trail rides through miles of pastoral wilderness. The ranch also hosts birthday parties, inviting revellers young and old to ride horses indoors, interact with cuddly residents from the petting zoo, and enjoy the great outdoors.
