Dogs, supposedly man's best friends, rarely exhibit the defining characteristic of true companionship—allowing a friend to climb on your back and carrying them into the sunset. Discover the animal kingdom's original best friend with today's Groupon to Bein Performance Horses in Scottsdale. Choose between the following options:
• For $25, you get a 90-minute private riding lesson (up to a $65 value).
• For $200, you get a four-day youth riding camp (up to a $400 value). Riders can register for either June 20–23 or June 27–30, both from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. daily.
The instructors at Bein are champion riders whose expert guidance leads riders of all skill levels in learning and enjoying the traditions of horsemanship. Each 90-minute lesson includes approximately half an hour of grooming, tacking up, and basic instructions on the ground, followed by half an hour of riding and a final 30 minutes of un-tacking and grooming gracious transports. Lessons can be used as an introduction, a refresher, a horse whispering, or a primer for the world of showing.
Kids receive a more in-depth equine experience with Bein's summer camps. During camp, one-hour group rides are enhanced with one-hour Hippology lessons, in which students learn more about the care, physiology, and history of horses, including which songs Paul Bunyan sang to his horse to turn it into a rideable ox. Riders are suited up in a commemorative T-shirt, and reflect upon newfound horse expertise during a daily craft. Although campers receive a daily snack, parents should equip them with lunch, a swimsuit, sunblock, and a hat.
