What You'll Get
Horses were once considered man’s best friend, but after the invention of the dog, the horse was rebranded as man’s eccentric, oat-obsessed uncle. Take a journey with the kindest of kinsmen with today's Groupon, which gets you horse riding instruction at Hidden Lark Farm. Choose between the following options:
- For $60, you get two private horseback-riding lessons (a $120 value).
- For $30, you get one private horseback-riding lesson (a $60 value).
Beginning riders and experienced equestrians alike can benefit from the one-on-one tutelage of Hidden Lark Farm’s seasoned, championship-clinching trainers. During lessons, students are schooled in the proper procedures for competitive or casual equitation, or hunter or jumper horseback riding. Customers can either bring along their own pocket steed or hitch a ride on one of Hidden Lark’s well-trained trotters—the stable is full of friendly thoroughbred horses and ponies to match all personalities, sizes, and skill levels. Today’s Groupon grants saddle people either a single lesson to brush up on their horsemanship or a pair of lessons to buck their brains with a double dose of riding wisdom.
In addition to lessons, customers can also take advantage of Hidden Lark’s access to competitions, clinics, and special events that provide ample opportunities for testing their newly gleaned horse know-how. With 30 acres of trails, Hidden Lark Farm presents a safe and scenic setting where riders can improve their horse-driving skills while taking in the sights of grassy plains, shady trees, and sunless sunsets.

About Hidden Lark Farm
Lisa R. Kraut, Hidden Lark Farm's head trainer, first saddled up at age six, and has been riding and training horses ever since. She and a crew of seasoned instructors share their expertise at the 25-acre farm, which encompasses rolling meadows and an outdoor ring of sand and clay. In a private or group setting, they adapt lessons for all ability levels, molding them around English equestrian techniques as well as pupils' ambitions, such as showing or teaching a horse how to take off his own saddle. Teachers further nurture rapport between rider and steed during trail rides and at horsemanship camps.
