What You'll Get
Horsemanship was once a vital skill, much like the ability to avoid sailing off the end of the earth or the ability to discern which pizza trees were poisonous. Master an ancient art of survival with today's Groupon: for $50, you get two 30-minute private horseback-riding lessons for one (a $100 value) at Minnesota Saddlebred Horse Association. This Groupon is valid at stables in Hastings, Plato, Stillwater, Zimmerman, Delano, Lakeville, Hugo, and Oakfield, WI.
The Minnesota Saddlebred Horse Association unites stables across the state, showcasing the diversity of the american saddlebred, as well as training future equestrians with individually tailored riding lessons. After arriving in long pants and sturdy, low-heel shoes, riders don helmets as instructors commence half-hour equine adventures to acquaint students with an agreeable saddlebred, whose manner and relaxed gait are perfect for human accompaniment and a marked advantage in "act casual" situations. The average lesson covers mounting and dismounting, walking and trotting, rein control, and how to properly engage with the horse. In addition, riders will spend time learning how horses think and react in common situations. The MSHA's participating stables open on evenings and weekends for man-to-beast interactions after school or work; customers should note that Lear Stables in Hastings is not heated.
