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 $119, you get an equestrian outing for two at Equestrian Ridge Farm in New Plymouth (a $250 total value). The outing includes:

  • One-hour riding lesson for two (a $60 value each)
  • Either a one-hour horse-drawn cart ride for two ($130/couple) or a 60- to 90-minute meadows and woods trail ride for two (a $65 value each)<p>

Equestrian Ridge Farm’s equine experts help advance human/horse relations on a 200-acre space populated with pastures, wooded riding trails, and professional horse-training facilities. Riding pairs mount their steeds in one of the farm’s outdoor or indoor arenas for a personalized 60-minute lesson. During the class, a saddle-savvy instructor teaches the fundamentals of various riding styles and maneuvers, encouraging communication between riders and their horses through a series of trust exercises.

Next, a 60- to 90-minute meadows and woods trail ride alternates between walking, trotting, and fox-trotting, letting riders of any skill treat their retinas to the area’s placid pastoral landscapes. Or passenger duos tuck cozy blankets around legs as they snuggle onto a horse-drawn cart, letting equestrian companions ferry them past stately pines, picturesque meadows, and secret-whispering blades of grass.

Equestrian Ridge Farm

The staff at Equestrian Ridge Farm has been tending to steeds and riders on its 200-acre estate for more than 10 years. During riding lessons in a medley of styles—including dressage, single driving, and trail riding—trainers educate equestrians of all levels at the facility’s two large, indoor arenas. The barn houses between 15–20 horses at any given time, a handful of which are reserved for lessons or reenactments of chase scenes from The Lone Ranger. Equestrian Ridge also offers under-saddle training for horses by an experienced instructor who tailors each session to the steed’s temperament and riding style.
