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: for $22, you get a one-hour private horseback-riding lesson (a $45 value) at Hunt-Ho Farm, Inc. in North Augusta.
Hunt-Ho Farm forges bonds between human and horse during jumper-style and dressage riding lessons. Main instructor Emily Gainey, certified with the American Riding Instructors' Association and holder of a bachelor's degree in equestrian science, boasts 13 years of experience teaching tots, teens, and adults wearing Dennis the Menace costumes. The farm stocks its stables with more than 20 valiant steeds, which prance in the infinite limelight shed upon them by Hunt-Ho's illuminated arena. Students can elect to learn either the art of jumper-style riding, in which horses must clear ever-heightened hurdles, or dressage, a choreographed trot that puts ponies in head-to-head competitions to see which horse can dance the farthest distance while balancing a watermelon on its head.
