As history's first getaway vehicle, horses have inspired man’s future feats of propulsion, such as the adding 140-horsepower engines to paddleboats and strapping saddles to the family dog. Prepare for forthcoming flights with today's Groupon: for $35, you get one day of summer camp for kids and adults ages 5 and up and helmet rental at Heartland Equestrian in Whitby (a $70 value).
Heartland Equestrian hands the coveted reins to riders of all ability levels during its lively summer-camp sessions. Campers learn about horses and horsemanship on 47 acres of picturesque farmland and interact with equine amigos on the grounds’ indoor and outdoor facilities. Camp runs for six hours Monday–Thursday and three hours on Fridays, after which participants can show off their new mounting, trotting, and four-legged moonwalking skills before family and friends at Friday horse shows. Equestrian helmets are provided to stylishly shield heads, though campers are asked to bring their own long pants, riding boots, and notarized references from other equine pals.
