Horsemanship is the mastery of riding and grooming, unlike Manhorseship, which is just a good name for a centaur's yacht. Take the reins with this Groupon.
$39 for Two 60-Minute Private Horseback-Riding Lessons ($80 Value)
Instructors go over grooming and horsemanship before students spend about 30 minutes learning to ride the horse. Depending on the weather, lessons may be held in the rustic outdoor arena or the climate-controlled indoor facility.
Classic Farms Riding Academy
Jill Volckmann, the nationally certified instructor at Classic Farms Riding Academy personalizes each lesson to help beginners and advanced riders learn the ropes of English-style riding. With 30 years of experience behind her, including stints in Texas and Kentucky, she puts an emphasis on safety and fosters well-rounded riders by also focusing on grooming and horsemanship. In addition to teaching new students the equestrian ropes, Jill also introduces little ones to friendly horses during Tiny Tot lessons, schedules special private sessions that focus on grooming and horsemanship, and brings the fun of riding to birthday parties and special events. When not busy with human students, she and her team train and show American saddlebreds in competitive divisions that range from English pleasure to hunt seat riding.
