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: for $70, you get a two-hour horseback ride for two from Sand and Sage Tours in Northwest Las Vegas (a $140 value).
At Sand and Sage Tours, adventurers set out on two-hour guided horseback treks across the scenic Nevada landscape. Knowledgeable tour guides select horses to match riders' skill levels, whether they are embarking on their first horseback jaunts or serving as hosts for the ghost of John Wayne. A preride mini lesson equips riders with the basics needed to navigate the deserts, where mountains to the west and east frame a rising or setting sun. Rides depart seven days a week, though ride times vary depending on the weather. Sand and Sage can also cater to young riders with child-friendly horses equipped with training wheels.
