Mounted police opt for equine transportation so that they don't have to deal with the squad car's wailing thirst for gas and justice. Harness real horsepower with this Groupon.

  • $32 for a Saddle-Up Adventure trail ride for one (a $65 value)

Riders groom and saddle horses before taking a short introductory lesson, followed by time to bond and groom the horse prior to riding. Next, horse and human explore nearby trails suitable for bot beginner and advanced riders. Participants can expect to ride for 60 minutes but should allow two to three hours for the entire experience.

Riding Star Ranch

Riding Star Ranch, a nonprofit organization, aims to heal people and horses with the physical and emotional benefits afforded by trail rides and riding lessons. The ranch’s team takes in unwanted, neglected, or abused animals and rehabilitates them, transforming them into confident, happy horses that students can ride.

During lessons, riders earn ribbons through the American Association of Riding Schools program, collecting them for learning how to properly groom and ride in disciplines such as hunter/jumper, English pleasure, and Western pleasure. And although taking a trail ride to the Carlton Reserve and the Myakka River will not win riders any ribbons, they are welcome to pin themselves with their own awards and medals before climbing aboard trusty steeds.

Customer Reviews

I was very pleased with my experience. I did not know that the Riding Starranch existed until they advertised on Groupon. My husband and I were very happy, and will most likely return again.

Very freindly staff & they take very good care of their horses. They actually had came in from a trail ride in the morning and had unsattled all the horses so they could cool off and then resaddled them for our ride. Kudos to them for the extra effort to take extra care of the horses.
