Horses and humans have worked together for centuries, transporting goods, fording rivers, and sharing the blame for the fall of Troy. Bond with the noblest of creatures with today's Groupon: for $35, you get two 60-minute horseback-riding lessons at Ladybug Farm in Northport (a $70 value).
Ladybug Farm’s equestrians, with more than 50 years of experience, impart their knowledge of equines on willing participants during one-hour horse-handling lessons on scenic farmscapes. During all semiprivate sessions, students learn basic skills and horse care, including how to tack and groom a mount and how to play one-on-one basketball games of H-U-M-A-N with their sanguine steed. Trainers work with riders aged 4 and older at their farm, which also houses a tack and supply store stocked with designer horse seats styled by Dakota Saddlery, 1849 Ranchwear, Saddle King, and more.
