What You'll Get
The horse and buggy was a popular method of early transportation, far surpassing the bug and buggy, which could barely move and was often destroyed by squeamish gunslingers. Saddle up with today's Groupon to Red Fox Stables in Lithia. Choose between the following options:
• For $21, you get one private horseback-riding lesson (a $42 value).
• For $35, you get one day or night horseback trail ride for two people (a $70 value).
Red Fox Stables' experienced equine-lovers bring together human and horse for relaxing trail rides and enlightening lessons. During the one-hour private lesson, individuals get hands-on training in grooming and tacking before mastering the reins throughout the riding area and trails. Each session is recorded on video, allowing students to track their progress and search their gentle steed's expressions for signs of true love.
Before the cavalry departs on a 60-minute leisurely trail ride through the Alafia River Corridor Preserve, riders receive a mini lesson from an experienced guide. Horse whisperers match riders to their mobile half based on gender, height, age, and performance on the SAT, providing helmets that riders 18 and younger must wear. Excursions are held by appointment throughout the day and into the evening.

About Red Fox Stables
Red Fox Stables' experienced equine lovers bring together human and horse for relaxing trail rides, enlightening lessons, and equestrian camps for kids. During trail rides, riders steer their four-hoofed vehicles through the Alafia River Corridor Preserve, keeping their eyes open for passing deer, armadillos, and other wildlife. Horse whisperers match riders to their mobile half based on gender, height, and age, providing helmets that riders 18 or younger must wear.
During lessons, lone rangers or small groups get hands-on training in grooming and tacking before seizing the reins themselves on the riding area and trails. The stables’ seasoned instructors record each lesson on video, allowing students to track their progress and search their gentle steed's expressions for signs of true love. Red Fox Stables also caters to horse-oriented youths with camps and birthday-party specials, during which kids interact with equine residents and enjoy horse-related crafts and games.
