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 $99, you get four horseback-riding lessons at Elite Equestrian in San Juan Capistrano (a $220 value).
Elite Equestrian's staff of experienced horsemen leads riders and their noble beasts through hunter, jumper, and equitation-ring training classes. Students can mount one of the school's graceful steeds for four 60-minute riding lessons, sparing the hassle of teaching one’s own seahorses to breathe air. Equestrian instructors illustrate the basics of horsemanship, form, and control in equitation-ring training, or delve into fence-hopping tactics in hunter and jumper curriculums. The school furnishes riders with all necessary equipment, though students who desire them must bring their own banjos and stovepipe chaps.
