Like all domesticated animals, horses require human guidance to keep from brushing against thorny bushes, eating poisonous rocks, and galloping triumphantly into the ocean. Take the reins with today’s Groupon to Moss Beach Ranch. Choose between the following options:
- For $99, you get a two-hour horseback-riding lesson for two people (a $220 value).
- For $149, you get a two-hour horseback-riding lesson for four people (a $330 value).<p>
Moss Beach Ranch’s team of instructors matches students with the most ideal mount from nearly 30 lesson horses for intimately sized classes in dressage, jumping, and other equine arts. Provided equipment settles snugly about idling mounts or Trojan tanks as students study the basics of pre-riding prep. Arenas dedicated to dressage and jumping thunder with the carefully timed steps of showier sports horses, while sand-bottomed rings puff restlessly beneath the hooves of would-be trail riders and their gentle mounts. Horses communicate with commands from both English- and Western-style riders via clucked tongues, tugged reins, and imitations of Yosemite Sam. The 50-acre training grounds double as an idyllic horse haven, with well-drained paddocks and scenic pastures amid 4,200 acres of open riding space.
