The finest cowboys are those who truly understand their equine better half, which is why centaurs make great cowboys. Establish a kindred horse-human connection with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a one-hour private horse-riding lesson at Equilibrium Horse Center on Underwood Road in Gambrills (a $65 value). For safety reasons, hard-soled shoes with a heel must be worn for all riding lessons, and riding pants or long slacks with tall boots or chaps are recommended for comfort. All equipment, including an approved riding helmet, is provided for the lesson.
Equilibrium Horse Center is nested on more than 80 acres of fields and forests, an ideal natural landscape for the classical art of horse riding. The school and horse center focuses on educating visitors in horsemanship, which includes eventing, classical dressage, jumping, and more. Skilled equestrians who want to brush up on horse-sitting and neophytes who have never licked a horse outside the realm of dream and prophecy can both benefit from an hour of private instruction. Lesson time includes preparation of the horse, bringing the horse from the stall to the arena, and returning a newfound equine friend to the stall after the lesson is over, all valuable skills in the world of ungulate-based transportation. Discuss your horse-goals with one of Equilibrium's skilled, experienced instructors, who will work to tailor the private lesson to your desires.
