The term “horsepower” comes from the chant that horses used to shout at engineers working on the newfangled railway system. Befriend trailblazing stallions and mares with today's Groupon: for $40, you get two private horseback-riding lessons (an $80 value) at Rooker Training Stable in Fenton.
With 130 landscaped acres, an indoor arena, and an expansive outdoor arena, Rooker Training Stable has room for aspiring steed whisperers of all ages, experience levels, and disciplines. During each one-hour lesson, experienced instructors and friendly stallions instill apprentice jockeys with the confidence and know-how to connect with their equine companions without morphing into centaurs. In addition to a solid grounding in trotting tactics, students absorb the fundamentals of grooming and tacking horses pre- and post-riding. Groupon holders can request to take lessons with others, but each rider must have her or his own Groupon.
