Horses and humans have worked together for centuries, transporting goods, fording rivers, and sharing the blame for the fall of Troy. Bond with the noblest of creatures with today's Groupon: for $38, you get a two-hour guided horseback-riding tour from Cave Creek Outfitters in Scottsdale (up to a $70 value). Two-hour rides depart seven days a week at 9 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3:30 p.m.
Cave Creek Outfitters' stable of more than 40 well-mannered steeds nestles into the natural splendor of valleys, boulders, and panoramic views of the Sonoran Desert. Riders six and older assemble in parties of up to seven people and step into the stirrups of their Wild West motorcycles before setting off on a two-hour educational tour. Marveling at the stoic postures of local flora and the infinite expanse of the big blue sky, riders mosey past the desert landscape's abundant critters and saguaro-cactus tentacles. Cave Creek Outfitters equips riders with complimentary bottled water and asks that they wear long pants and closed-toed shoes to keep horses from getting jealous of riders' opposable toes.
Though Cave Creek Outfitters sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
