Before man learned to ride horses, Western films ended with cowboys jogging into the sunset. Saddle up with this Groupon.
$199 for a Three-Day Little Farmers Day Camp ($400 Value)
During Little Farmers day camps, wee ones experience country life on a working farm. In addition to bottle-feeding a newborn calf, riding a pony, and holding a bunny, kids learn about how fruits and veggies grow and how to care for a garden. Rounding out the days are trips to Raccoon Creek and games and walks on the 124-acre farm. Camps take place July 16–18, July 23–25, and July 30–August 1.
Blue Ribbon Farms
Beneath tree-blanketed mountains rests the fruit of Dan and Christine McLaughlin's labor, a 138-acre farm dedicated to the training of horses and horseback riders. After spending more than two decades dispensing his equine knowledge across the States, Dan desired to put down roots—and so he did, dotting verdant pasture with facilities for a full-service equestrian center, including a 30-stall barn, an indoor arena, and two outdoor arenas. The arenas bustle with lessons, camps, and community activities where riders practice English and Western riding styles for sport, recreation, and My Little Pony reenactments.
