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 today's Groupon: for $40, you get your choice of two one-hour private riding lessons or one 90-minute group polo lesson and scrimmage at Patch Wood Farm, located in Sandown, New Hampshire (up to a $90 value).
Patch Wood Farm is a family-oriented operation offering different levels of riding lessons and polo play every day of the week through the beautiful New Hampshire countryside. Private lessons are tailored to individual equestrian aptitudes, with beginners learning the basics of horse care and safety as well as how to brush, saddle, and bridle their steeds. Those who opt for the polo lesson get a rare chance to learn the extraordinary game from a knowledgeable instructor. With no riding experience necessary, those limited to experience with maneuvering seahorses during ocean-wide Marco Polo matches can learn the ropes without becoming lost at sea. Patch Wood Farms cares deeply about its animals, keeping them in top condition as well as rescuing horses from abusive conditions.
