Instructor was patient and explained the dynamics of horse-man relationship. He assessed my riding skills quickly and accurately. The instructor was able to correct an error I was unconciously doing in my riding.The horses were healthy, clean and had gentle temperment.

What You'll Get


Contrary to conventional wisdom, one can in fact look a gift horse in the mouth, now that the mouth no longer houses the retina-scorching nuclear reactor that powers the horse. Get an eyeful of equine incisors with today’s Groupon at Hillcrest Farms in Sunol. Choose from the following options:

  • For $44, you get two group Western-horseback-riding lessons (a $90 value).
  • For $89, you get four group Western-horseback-riding lessons (a $180 value).
  • For $145, you get a 2.5-hour children’s birthday package for kids ages 6–12 (a $295 value) that includes:

A team of skilled equestrians at Hillcrest Farms boosts horse lovers safely into the saddle to initiate lifelong companionship. Groups of six riders ages 8 and older gather for weekly Western-style classes, in which they re-enact scenes from Ben Hur during the course of 90 minutes. Beginners learn etiquette for interacting with their noble beast in the ring and practice grooming, saddling, and bridling, whereas advanced students refine their handling skills and solidify their seat. Since classes build skills sequentially, students must visit the stable each week to avoid missing crucial lessons on shifting gears between trotting and loping. Equine birthday parties augment the thrill of years rushing by with the delightful company of a small cavalry. During the interspecies mixer, staff members hoist pintsize revelers atop one of five horses for a celebratory cruise, play chaperone-rousing games, and translate private promises of everlasting friendship into whinnies.
