What You'll Get
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 $59, you get three private riding lessons (a $170 value) at Pemberley Equestrian Center in Chesterfield. Helmets are provided for the lessons.
Each expert equestrian at Pemberley schools riders ages 6 and up on the essentials of good horsemanship and welcomes them to pick his or her brain of its abounding horse knowledge. The first horseback-riding lesson will be a one-hour evaluation that surveys guests on their previous riding experiences to be paired with the appropriate horse and trainer ($60). The next two lessons are 30-minute, horse-handling sessions ($55 each), in which riders will learn how to entice graceful gallops out of their faithful steeds, properly tack their four-legged partners, and sleep standing up.
