Horseback riding replaced horsefront riding during the War of 1812, when American soldiers realized the tactical disadvantage of swordfighting while lounging inside of a hammock-inspired horse necklace. Giddyup like a grownup with today's Groupon: for $45 you get two private horseback-riding lessons at August Farm in Magnolia (a $90 value).
August Farm is a brand-new, 24-stall facility that encompasses equine machines, their trainers, and lessons appropriate for beginning urban cowboys and professional rein dancers alike. Experienced trainers grant aspiring riders one-on-one attention during one-hour lessons, which take place under the seasonably sensible comforts of the expansive, covered arena. Grown-up giddyuppers can learn the basics of English-style riding on one of many steeds, including a kid-friendly horse named Sarge, the farm's resident expert on patience, trust, and the finer points of hemming four-legged pants.
