Contrary to conventional wisdom, one can in fact look a gift horse in the mouth, now that the mouth no longer houses the retina-scorching nuclear reactor that powers the horse. Get an eyeful of equine incisors with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get two one-hour group horse-riding lessons at Saddle Creek Stables (an $80 value).
Lying upon more than 160 acres of picturesque terrain, Saddle Creek Stables epitomizes the equestrian lifestyle and fosters the connection between horse and rider. The one-hour group classes will not exceed 10 pupils, ensuring that students and their steeds garner proper amounts of attention while engaging in a social atmosphere and simulated stagecoach robberies. Surrounded by acres of conservation and wildlife areas, Saddle Creek provides plentiful space for riders to trot around in pastoral splendor, and lighted parking and heated bathroom facilities proffer modern conveniences. The farm is open seven days a week, and lessons will be flexibly scheduled based on demand and excessively loud student neighing.
Saddle Creek Stables
In 2005, the racehorse known as St. Croix was crowned Ohio's Horse of the Year, completing the season with one third-place, one second-place, and five first-place finishes. None of this would be possible without the tireless efforts of Saddle Creek Stables' trainers, who saved St. Croix from his early vacation plans to horse heaven. After the equine instructors retrained and bonded with him, St. Croix returned the favor with an awe-inspiring racing career. Now enjoying his retirement, St. Croix carries guests on leisurely trail rides across 160 acres of forest trails, outcroppings, cliffs, and flowing streams.
Saddle Creek Stables is a premier racehorse facility operated by trainers dedicated to making their thoroughbreds happy and healthy. The team leads trail rides for all ages and organizes parties with hayrides and bonfires for children. Their forested ranch also provides an excellent venue for hikers, campers, anglers, and deprived houseplants looking to reconnect with their natural habitat.
