Their response time to voicemails left to schedule was terrible at first, but after a month or so they complied. Even after the groupon expired they honored it and made the experience as pleasant as possible for being an extemely cold winter day.

Thank you for the lessons. My daughter and I had a great time and you put her completely at ease even though she'd never ridden before. I would suggest putting a sign at the driveway entrance; we drove past the first time.

What You'll Get

Though a horse possesses a strong back and fast legs, its most useful feature is its trivia-packed brain. Add an equine buddy to your Trivial Pursuit team with today’s Groupon to AZ Acres Incorporated in Plainfield. Choose between two options:

  • For $40, you get two basic horseback-riding lessons (an $80 value).
  • For $80, you get a three-lesson introductory horseback-riding course (a $190 value).

The equine experts at AZ Acres Incorporated teach fledgling steed bestriders the horseback riding essentials with a series of hands-on, once-weekly lessons. Classes are capped at four students to ensure individualized attention and an intimate learning environment. Two 30-minute basic lessons help students master the fundamentals of pony piloting. Pupils practice skills such as walking, trotting, and fox trotting, spending the whole lesson nestled in the proverbial saddle.

The introductory horseback course's trio of lessons focuses on basic horsemanship skills and diverse riding styles to strengthen the centaur-like bond between horse and human. The initial 90-minute horsemanship lesson grants riders one hour of grooming and tacking time with their oat-powered vehicles before taking a 20–30 minute jaunt. The following one-hour introduction to English riding hones crumpet-eating-while-riding skills, alongside a tutorial on the basics of jumping and a demonstration of proper position. Skilled instructors demonstrate timed rodeo events during the third lesson's one-hour introduction to Western riding before turning the reins over to students preparing for upcoming showdowns with spur-clad tumbleweeds.
