Horses and humans have worked together for centuries, transporting goods, fording rivers, and sharing the blame for the fall of Troy. Bond with the noblest of creatures with today's Groupon to Green Acres Ranch in Temecula. For $129, you get a wine-country outing (a $300 value) that includes the following:
- A 75-minute guided horseback trail ride for two
- A wine tasting for two at Leoness Cellars
- A wine tasting for two at Robert Renzoni Vineyards
Riders must make reservations in advance and cannot weigh more than 240 pounds. Guests must provide transportation to each location. Rides are offered Wednesday through Sunday.
The experienced guides at Green Acres Ranch pair guests with a gentle team of saddled companions before exploring Temecula's scenic wine country during guided trail rides. After completing a safety lesson centered on equine-bonding essentials, riders follow guides into an endless realm of rolling foothills, sun-drenched valleys, and wine-stained clouds. After savoring the sight of rolling vineyards from atop their mounts, explorers continue journeys by tasting five varietals in the Leoness Cellars tasting room and six wine samples at Renzoni Vineyards. At each tasting, wine specialists introduce palates to a spread of blends from crops of cabernet sauvignon, pinot grigio, and brunello sangiovese grapes.
Green Acres Ranch
Green Acres Ranch opened as a private ranch in 1957 where one family bred, trained, and showed arabians. Now, the 50-acre ranch is open to all and can house up to 200 steeds. Experienced instructors train riders during lessons in english, western, and dressage styles and take competitors to regional and national horse shows. They also lead groups through the surrounding wine country's rolling foothills, sun-drenched valleys, and wine-stained clouds during guided trail rides and introduce youngsters to riding through seasonal horse camps, scouting programs, and birthday parties.
Opening the world of riding and animal care to individuals of all abilities, Green Acres' interactive animal therapy program gives kids and individuals with special needs the chance to interact with small animals and ride horses. The fully functioning ranch also trains and boards clients' horses.

“The ride was nice and the tour guide was awesome. The actual riding time was only about 50-55 minutes not an hour and 15 minutes like the groupon stated. You were able to brush the horses before riding and then feed them or help bathe them after the ride which was nice and it added some time to the experience but I still wish the actual ride on the horses was a bit longer.”
“It was a fun ride! Good experience for kids with no horse experience. The guide was fun and gave cool facts about the area”
