Horses became the most popular form of animal-based travel after riding on the wind proved fruitless and riding on a rocket-horse proved perilous. Travel the old-fashioned way with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get two private 30-minute horseback-riding lessons at Anne Benson Stables in Portsmouth (a $90 value).
Located a short 25-minute drive or two-hour gallop from Providence, Anne Benson Stables turns ordinary ambulators into accomplished equestrians ready to safely operate a modern horse. Private lessons—which are ideal for riders 7 years and older who need time to develop skills before riding into any sunsets—build horse masters from the ground up, laying brick after brick of essential skills backed by positive reinforcement. Equine enthusiasts of all levels of expertise can develop their riding skills in styles such as English saddle seat, hunt seat, equitation, or driving under the personal eye of experienced riders whose first rocking horses were actual horses.
