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 $72, you get an introductory lesson, the meadows-and-woods trail ride (a $130 value), and a picnic lunch (a $15 value) for two from Equestrian Ridge Farm in New Plymouth (a $145 total value).

Equestrian Ridge Farm, led by instructor and trainer Jackie Stewart, who has four decades worth of horsey experience, claims 200 acres of meadows, wooded riding trails, and professional horse-training facilities in the scenic Hocking Hills region of Vinton County. Beginning trotters take to the farm’s on-site arena for an introductory lesson that’s customized to each client’s comfort and skill level, covering such equine essentials as basic riding techniques, commands, and introductory calculus. Led by a seasoned reign master, the approximately 90-minute meadows-and-woods trail ride alternates between walking, trotting, and fox-trotting as riders fill their lungs with fresh air and treat retinas to the area’s placid pastoral landscapes. Ideal for saddle-sitters of all stripes, trail rides grant each guest the unparalleled opportunity of riding and guiding their own well-trained mount. Unpack and indulge in a picnic basket brimming with sandwiches, chips, and drinks before remounting steeds for a commemorative photo that will soon find its way to riders' email inboxes for easy printing and Facebook flaunting.

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.
