Horseback riding replaced horsefront riding during the War of 1812, when American soldiers realized they couldn't be taken seriously while carried in adult-sized baby slings. Giddy-up like a grownup with today's Groupon: for $110, you get five private horseback riding lessons (a $225 value) at Aruna Equestrian in Fort Collins.
Aruna Equestrian embraces the art of horseback riding with a holistic approach, teaching riders how to hone their skills while practicing compassionate horsemanship. Lessons are conducted at Aruna's Fort Collins facility, which boasts—especially in its Christmas letters—a year-round indoor arena and outdoor rings. Aruna's instructors have a B.S. in Equine Science from CSU and structure their classes around the rider's skill level, giving beginners an entryway into the sport and advanced riders a few new tricks for evading ringwraiths. Ages 5–65 are welcome to enjoy Aruna's riding tutelage.
