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 deal: 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, while riding pants or long slacks with tall boots or chaps are recommended for comfort. All equipment, including an approved riding helmet, is included in the lesson.
Equilibrium 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. Whether you're a skilled equestrian who wants brushing up, or a complete neophyte who believes that horses only exist in the realm of dream and prophecy, you'll 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 your newfound equine friend to the stall after the lesson is over, all valuable skills when it comes to horsemanship. Discuss your horse-goals with one of Equilibrium's skilled, experienced instructors, who will work to tailor the private lesson to you.
By appointment only; must sign waiver before lesson.
