Horsemanship was once a vital skill, much like the ability to avoid sailing off the end of the earth or the ability to discern which pizza trees were poisonous. Master an ancient art of survival with today’s Groupon to Avalon Stables in Lutz. Choose between the following options:

  • For $55, you get two one-hour horse experience lessons (a $180 value).
  • For $99, you get a one-hour family group ride for up to four (a $360 value).<p>

Avalon Stables’ team of accomplished equestrians imparts skills and knowledge through hands-on instruction to steer students of all skill levels through horse-riding lessons. Tranquil, verdant pastures lay the backdrop for learning to gussy up a gallop. Trot forth on one of Avalon’s eight lesson horses that are easily coerced into cantering or sitting on a barstool. Families of up to four can stride alongside one another and settle arguments about whose John Wayne impersonation looks most like a Napoleon impersonation.

We will definitely go back. We had a very nice time. The stable is on a beautiful property. Our teacher was Jessica. She was patient with us, it was our first time horseback riding. The horses are calm and gentle. We stayed a little after our session to feed carrots to the horses. Overall the five of us had a wonderful afternoon and looking forward to the next visit.

Staff was very friendly, and it is obvious that all of the animals there are loved and taken care of very well. My daughter had a great time, and we have another visit pending related to our Groupon. I just hope that the future visits I will need to schedule because my daughter loved it so much, will be affordable.
