Before mankind decided to use the horse for transportation, chariots were pulled by ostriches and knights rode into battle by piggybacking on their squires. Master the majesty of four-legged movement with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get two 60-minute semiprivate horse-riding lessons (a $40 value, at $20 each) and horse usage (a $20 value, at $10/hour) at Fairy Tale Farm in Johnstown (a $60 total value).
With a neighing artillery of horses ready to patiently ferry young passengers around tracks and over fences, Fairy Tale Farm’s well-trained staff strives to fashion equine experts in 60-minute semiprivate riding lessons. Pupils gain confidence around the majestic animals by learning the ropes of maintenance practices such as grooming. After sprucing and cleaning their steeds, students tack them up with saddles, bits, and high heels before clambering atop the hoofed chariots to master the basics of riding. Experienced gallopers can deepen their equine understanding in more advanced classes. Focusing on the horse-rider connection, these classes are tailored to each rider’s specific riding goals, whether it's mastering jumps or teaching their horse to moo.
