What You'll Get
Without horses, cowboys would be forced to whisper to wild Ferraris or hitch their stagecoaches to members of the Denver Broncos. Embrace equine transportation with today’s Groupon: for $69, you get to take five group horseback-riding lessons at Nova Quarter Horses in Mokena (a $165 value).
Nova Quarter Horses' expert instructors saddle up excited equestrians for lessons on 10 acres of farmland. Group lessons accommodate a maximum of 15 students, ensuring that tutors can individually trot new riders through confidence-building exercises in English or Western styles, as well as help experienced riders prepare for freelance stunt work on public-access television shows. A variety of classes for students 6 and older take place six days a week, and Nova Quarter Horses adds new lessons to the schedule when classes fill up. Pupils can canter across sprawling pastures lined with wooden fences or find shade in the 16,000-square-foot indoor ring so horses' hard-earned tans don't become sunburns.
Riders should wear blue jeans and hard-soled shoes or boots, and Nova Quarter Horses provides all students with helmets to complete equestrian outfits and provide temporary homes to pet fish.
