What You'll Get
Mounted police opt for equine transportation so they don’t have to deal with the squad car's wailing thirst for gas and justice. Avoid similar automotive appetites with today's Groupon to Glen Grove Equestrian Center in Morton Grove. Choose between the following options:
- For $39, you get one private one-hour horseback-riding lesson (an $80 value).
- For $59, you get three private 30-minute horseback-riding lessons (a $120 value).
Glen Grove Equestrian Center’s saddled savants steer riders toward horseback success in private lessons that cover everything from basic riding techniques to advanced showmanship. All levels of riders are invited to expand their horse sense in 30-minute lessons that employ a carrot-and-stick motivational philosophy to keep horses sated and riders moving along the path toward hunter/jumper mastery. At the beginning of each lesson, riders will be evaluated for their amount of experience and paired with a horse that has been taught, trained, and boarded to accommodate their skill level. Riders will then learn how to mount and position themselves in the saddle before attempting to trot confidently through Taco Bell to-go lines.
Tutorials in English saddle riding are also available to give competitive riders a hoof up in horse shows. Though riders need not purchase their own equipment or stable their own equine partners, the Short Stirrups store caters to serious horse-lovers with an array of riding apparel and supplies, as well as an inflatable ball pit to keep baby horses occupied.
