Horses are some of the most perceptive animals, as evidenced by the saying, "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't explain his intimate knowledge of your childhood fears." Tap into equine insight with this Groupon.
$35 for a 90-Minute Horseback Ride ($70 Value)
Horses amble down trails lined with pinion pines as guides lead small groups across the rolling canyons of Kyle Canyon. At various points throughout the ride, visitors bear witness to scenic vistas of the desert and mountains. Trail rides depart at 8 a.m., 10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m., and 4 p.m.
Mount Charleston Trail Rides
Whinnies of anticipation can often be heard from the stables of Mount Charleston Trail Rides, where well-mannered horses and ponies wait to ferry riders down trails flanked by whistling ponderosa pines, junipers, and aspens. Led by cowboy guides, small groups hop into saddles and embark on scenic explorations of the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest and its surrounding areas. With crisp air that normally averages 30 degrees cooler than the Las Vegas Valley, the foothills and canyons offer a welcome respite from the heat of the desert. When the temperatures dip too low for horseback rides, the ranch keeps its trusty steeds busy with carriage rides, sleigh rides, and a Sadie Hawkins dance with unicorns from the neighboring forest.
