The horse, once the most common human transporter, has declined in popularity following the advent of giant AIBOs. Learn about old-timey transportation with today's Groupon: for $45, you get two riding sessions in the English style, from 45 minutes to two hours long depending on riding experience, at HorseFleet Academy (up to a $100 value). The lessons take place on a farm in Wimauma. Riders must be at least nine years old.

The professional instructors at HorseFleet Academy focus on three core concepts of hoofed transportation—safety, balance, and an enjoyable ride for horse and mankind. Experienced riders can bring their own saddle, but all equipment (including horse) is provided for novices, intermediates, and horse-fearers. Beginners will start by learning the basics of horse care, including tack and grooming. Once you've beamed onto your horse, you'll get plenty of pointers and guidance focused on the seat, balance, control, and even advanced skills from an experienced instructor, readying you for an enjoyable experience.

With the proper skills under your belt, you'll look like a natural extension of the mighty beast beneath you, as well as have fun taking part in the time-honored tradition of horsemanship. Lessons at HorseFleet are an excellent way for riders without the facilities to care for animals to keep their skills sharp, but if you have your own horse, you can bring it to the farm for some riding pointers.

HorseFleet Academy

At HorseFleet Academy, experienced equestrian Kat Wiggins hones the horseback acumen of riders both new and seasoned during focused, private lessons. Specializing in English–style riding, Wiggins helps beginners of all ages learn the basics of balance and control before they attempt to jump gorges, ford rivers, or lasso another rider’s lasso. More advanced students can display the fruits of their training at local horse shows or attend clinics to learn among expert riders and show judges.

Customer Reviews

We've only been there once so far and we have 5 lessons, but the first lesson was very good, my daughter enjoyed it very much. Kat is very professional and very nice. Very much considering taking some more lessons there after we are done with the groupon.

Horsefleet academy is a great place where to learn how to ride. The instructor Kat is wonderful, she is patient, calm and always cheer me when I'm able to do what she taught me. I know she does this all the time and still she makes me feel like I'm her only student. She is the perfect instructor for somebody like me who is just approaching formal riding lessons for the first time but I know she is just as great with students of higher level. The stable is clean and the horses are well taken care of. When I leave the academy after my lesson I always feel relaxed and proud of the things I learned. I would recommend this place to anybody !
