What You'll Get
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 $75, you get two group horseback-riding lessons at Leap of Faith Farms in Walnut Creek (a $150 value).
The stables at Leap of Faith Farms' facility are filled with carefully selected equines for a variety of boarding, training, and riding services. Expert riding instructors guide groups through 45–60 minute lessons, which vary depending on saddle stamina, experience, and the shoe-shopping schedule of each horse. Lessons unfold in one of the three all-season riding arenas that encourage riders to perch atop horses year-round. Students learn basic maneuvers on their steeds, such as various degrees of gaiting and FM dial tuning, before ending the session with 15–20 minutes of grooming, saddling, and bridling.
