Like all domesticated animals, horses require human guidance to keep from brushing against barbed wire, eating poisonous rocks, and galloping triumphantly into the ocean. Take the reins with today's Groupon: for $40, you get two group English riding lessons (an $80 value) at Hunters Chase Farms in Wimberley. Hunters Chase Farms’ skilled equestrians train horse and rider alike to properly horse-step on miles of trails that meander through 45 acres of Texas hill country. During your duo of lessons, you’ll join small groups, alight onto English flat saddles, and practice the trotting technique of the English riding style, which requires a double-handed rein hold as riders post to the trot, rising and falling in rhythm with the horse while a team of timpanists drums out the pace.
- Hunters Chase Farms prides itself on it extraordinary teachers who teach everything from how to ride to how to care for and treat your animal. – Collective Vision
- I have taken riding lessons there for over 10 years. I would send anyone to ride there. Great family atmosphere! Fun! and Great Horses! – carstevenson, Citysearch
