If cinema has taught us anything, it's that impressive horse-riding skills are paramount for seducing blushing cowgirls, outrunning trains, and jumping from a high-dive into a kiddie pool filled with pudding. Attain cinematic bliss with today's Groupon to The Ajax Riding Academy, located on Audley Road North. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get access for one person to a one-hour group lesson (a $51 value).

The Ajax Riding Academy, operating on a 100 per cent solar-powered farm, mounts novice and antinovice riders atop one of 18 well-trained school horses in order to up equestrian skills. Depending on the participants' prowess, certified instructors cover the basics of mustang steering, hunter jumping, dressage, and cross-country riding during private and group lessons. Trusty steeds promenade in tandem with riders to preselected show tunes during a 30-minute private romp ($56.50), and one-hour group sessions may include up to four people ($51/student). Saddle sessions are held on weekday evenings and weekends so that the mares may practice chakra-balancing meditation during the day.
The Ajax Riding Academy
Operating on a fully solar-powered farm, The Ajax Riding Academy sprawls before visitors a state-of-the-art facility complete with continuous security camera coverage. The academy's year-round selection of services helps novice and advanced riders alike earn their spurs, including lessons for groups or single riders and camps for every season. Owners can also shelter their four-legged comrades inside the facility's exclusive boarding barn, which features 20 large box stalls that are cleaned daily and stocked with rubber-matted floors, making it impossible for ponies to tunnel out and start new lives as bankers. During colder months, a pair of indoor arenas teams up with heated viewing areas to facilitate enjoyable riding throughout the winter.
