What You'll Get
The horse and buggy was a popular method of early transportation, far surpassing the bug and buggy, which could barely move and was often destroyed by squeamish gunslingers. Saddle up with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a one-hour private horseback-riding lesson at Excel Equestrian, located in Eustis (a $50 value).
Excel Equestrian is a full-service horse house that offers lessons to rookie riders of all ages. Horse-top hitchhikers are saddled onto one of the stable’s able-bodied Arabian horses, where they spout their best John Wayne impression and receive instruction from experienced equestrians within the confines of a 53-foot pen. Besides the riding experience gleaned, students will leave with basic knowledge of grooming, tack care, feeding, animal awareness and respect, and more. In order to create a more versatile steed-steerer and honor equine accords, lessons are offered in both English and Western disciplines. An air-conditioned rest area offers a respite from the range and allows city slickers to cool overheated hooves.
