Folk wisdom about looking a gift horse in the mouth is obsolete, now that horses are no longer bred to belch blinding ammonia. Enjoy improved equine exhalations with this Groupon.

Riders can choose from three different trails. Guides at Hitchin' Post Stables in Flagstaff lead riders into the Coconino Forest, where they pass by scenic cliffs and canyons. At Pioneer Village Stables near Phoenix, groups explore a historic 19th-century town and enjoy free admission to the Pioneer Living Museum before heading out into a cacti-filled desert. The trails at Pot A Gold Stables in Mayer, meanwhile, wind past rock outcroppings, historic windmills, and working cattle ranches.
Hitchin' Post Stables
Much of Arizona remains unchanged from the days when cowboys and their dinosaur steeds ruled the desert plains. Millions of acres of lush trees still blanket the Coconino National Forest, growing up over mountains in defiance of the desert's red rocks.
The horseback guides at Pot A Gold Adventures call each of these majestic landscapes home. Each day, they lead groups from four different stables: Hitchin' Post Stables, Pot A Gold Stables, White Tank Stables, and Pot A Gold Tucson. From here, they depart on adventures through deserts and forests. The wagons are drawn on rubber wheels to make the ride as smooth as possible so guests can enjoy the views as well as the horses, as they are nearly as beautiful as the surrounding landscape. On some of these trips, they might stop to build a fire and cook dinners of steak, potatoes, and beans, or a real cowboy breakfast.
