What You'll Get
Horses are some of the most perceptive animals, as evidenced by the popular saying, "You can lead a horse to water but you can't explain his intimate knowledge of your childhood fears." Conquer your fear of horse wisdom atop a sensible stallion with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a half-hour horseback-riding lesson (a $45 value) at Johnny 6 Stables in Gilroy.
Johnny 6 offers full-service training for aspiring equestrians, its barn stocked to the rafters with expert instructors. Your horseback riding experience will include closely guided instruction during the half-hour riding lesson with a trained horse. Learn the ropes of horseback riding as you gallop on your way to becoming sensei of the saddle. All riders should wear long pants and closed-toe shoes during their lessons—for safety and so they don’t embarrass the horse's oddly specific fashion sense. Whether you're an advanced rider looking to get back on your high horse or a total neophyte who believes horses are no more real than Sasquatch or Richard Nixon, Johnny 6 will help you reach your quest for horse-riding success. Once the riding lesson is complete, your experience may include (if eligible) grooming, tacking, and putting the horse away in the stable. Classes are offered throughout the day, from the morning to the early evening, seven days a week.
This Groupon is valid for new clients only, and it may not be used toward additional lessons.
