The finest cowboys are those who truly understand their equine better half, which is why centaurs make great cowboys. Establish a kindred horse-human connection with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two pony rides at Medway River Stables in Mill Village.
At Medway River Stables, skilled handlers introduce saddle sitters to the pleasures of equine pastimes on an idyllic 55-acre farm. Young riders can set forth on pony rides within Medway's spacious, brightly lit indoor arena, perching at the regulation height for staring contests with segway riders. Riders can also opt to venture outdoors to explore a segment of the lush, tree-canopied trails that cut through miles of surrounding forests, accompanied by a personal guide to provide a safe environment for ponies and their pint-sized riders. A stimulating alternative to weekend pet rock races, this Groupon is valid Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
There is no age limit, though this is best for children 3 years and over. Adults are welcome to ride as well if they like.
