Horseback riding replaced horsefront riding during the War of 1812, when American soldiers realized they couldn't be taken seriously while being carried in adult-sized baby slings. Giddy-up like a grownup with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a 90-minute trail ride that includes a brief introductory lesson (a $75 value) at Haven Horse Ranch in St. Augustine. Now in its 21st year, Haven Horse Ranch provides horse-riding lessons and training for kids, teens, adults, and other kinds of people. During the lesson and orientation, visitors will delve into the fundamentals of Western-style equine riding and horsemanship. Then first-time riders can hop on a horse and head out on a trail ride to explore the scenic 25-acre property and apply their recently acquired saddle techniques. This nonprofit equestrian center enthusiastically supports kids using its team of wise horses to help children learn basic life lessons, build confidence, and develop leadership skills.

Haven Horse Ranch

For more than two decades, the non-profit organization Haven Horse Ranch has been using its 26-acre property and team of horses to help youngsters learn life disciplines through riding. The ranch hosts three- and five-day camps, clinics, and trail rides, and has special experience working with children who suffer from mental and physical challenges. Lessons center around the tenets of Western riding, horsemanship, or training, while fun drills such as barrel racing, horse soccer, and speed games help students practice agility without needing to dump ice water on a sleeping bull.

Loved it. There isn't much riding but they show you (hands on) how to clean their hoofs, brush them, feed, put the saddle on, ride in the round corral to learn how to turn them different directions and give you some interesting info you probably didn't know about horses. Lots of fun for my 17 year old son.
