The horse was once considered man’s best friend, but after the invention of the dog, the horse was rebranded as man’s eccentric, oat-obsessed uncle. Take a journey with the kindest of kinsmen with today's Groupon to Cherokee Hill Farm in Tryon. Choose between the following options:

  • For $20, you get a child beginner horseback-riding lesson (a $40 value).
  • For $25, you get an adult beginner horseback-riding lesson (a $50 value).

Cherokee Hill Farm's highly experienced instructors and calm equine companions gently guide novice riders around as they learn the fundamentals of horseback riding on 100 acres of smooth emerald pastures. Students start the approximately one-hour adult lesson in the stall, where they’ll go over basic riding terminology, familiarize themselves with the horse, and make sure the steed is in good riding health. The one-on-one-on-horse training continues as instructors demonstrate how to properly sit on the hunt-seat saddle, steer, and use vocal commands such as “walk,” “trot,” and “write a four-page essay on the influence of Nietzsche on horse training.” Young riders participating in the child lessons receive the same tutorial on horse riding as adults, but in slightly shorter 45-minute sessions. Cherokee Hill Farm recommends that riders equip their feet with sturdy heeled shoes with a smooth sole and protect their brain boxes with a riding helmet, which they can bring from home or borrow during the lesson.

Cherokee Hill Farm

Nestled in the scenic foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Cherokee Hill Farm’s 100 acres have hosted the equestrian pursuits of owners Mike and Linda Schatzberg for more than 25 years. When the horses aren't resting in one of the stable's 22 stalls, they graze on green grass and croquet mallets in one of the grounds' pastures or tote riders into the 380-acre landscape of the Foothills Equestrian Nature Center. Horse owners board their steeds at the farm, where staff members lovingly care for and train them. The Schatzbergs' passion for shar-peis led them to create an onsite kennel where pups can play while their owners ride. Beginning riders benefit from the blue ribbon expertise of instructor Mike, who specializes in hunt-seat riding.:m]]
