Before cars, horses were the preferred means of transportation because of their ability to leap over tollbooths and outrun segway-saddled sheriffs through narrow corridors. Rev up the horsepower with today's Groupon to Country Day School in Largo. Choose between the following options:
For $38, you get two private horseback-riding lessons (an $80 value).
For $24, you get two group horseback-riding lessons (a $50 value). Group lessons are limited to four riders.
Pam McCall and the experienced instructors of Country Day School's equestrian program lasso a comprehensive curriculum to share during private and small group lessons. Horses trot and canter during 45-minute sessions in the equestrian facility, which consists of two lighted riding arenas and three barns where a variety of quality schooled horses tie their own horseshoes and neigh in multiple languages. English and western disciplines, along with some unmounted instruction, help young riders develop an eclectic repertoire of ideas and techniques. The safety-oriented instructors require riders to wear helmets and closed-toe boots or shoes with a small heel, which help alleviate rare spills and overzealous pats on the back from heavy-handed hooves.
