What You'll Get
Horses were 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: for $30, you get two private, one-hour riding lessons at Classic Touch Stables (a $60 value).
Classic Touch Stables rounds up riders and herds them straight into the world of horsebacking. Whether you’ve never seen a steed or you’re looking to gain new riding prowess, a seasoned, engaging instructor will saddle your brain with the knowledge of either Western or English riding style. During the private, 60-minute sessions, beginners learn basics, such as mounting, walking, and trotting, and more advanced visitors discover how to jump and fly. Sidle up to the three accommodating, patient loaner ponies—Gunner, Stormy, and Obe—and experience the joy of learning to drive a real muscle car without a ride-along who fails you for galloping through a school zone.
The spacious, well-maintained grounds at Classic Touch Stables give the eyes a pleasant sight as equestrians amble along and dream of the day when they can dramatically ride off into a spectacular meteor shower. Riding helmets are included, although students must provide their own pair of sturdy, closed-toe shoes or boots.
