Horses symbolize a wild, uncontrollable spirit, which is why rebellious teenagers sport mane-like mohawks and eat even the cores of their apples. Take the reins with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $39 for a private 60-minute trail ride for two (an $80 value). This deal is valid for two one-hour trail rides for one, or one hour-long trail ride for two.
- $199 for a weekend horse camp for one (a $450 value)
Riders blaze a customized path during their private one-hour trail ride, exploring the mountainside through ways that they find most exciting. Those who want to feel the wind through their hair can urge their steed across open fields at full speed, or take scenic routes across babbling streams. Weekend camps train new riders in the ways of caring and riding for horses, from proper feeding and bathing to leading and grooming.
Sheridan Creek Equestrian Center
When Kristen Roberson rolls up the doors on her 85’x200’ indoor riding arena, she not only lets in cool prairie breezes, but she also unveils a panoramic vista of the Sierra Nevadas off in the distance. This backdrop greets students at Sheridan Creek Equestrian Center, where they can enjoy year-round lessons. The fully insulated facility also features satellite radio playing over the loudspeakers and is watered daily to cut down on dust and prevent a gang of meowing cats from taking it over. Private and group lessons, doled out in one-hour increments, focus on the disciplines of lower-level dressage, Western riding, and jumping and are completely tailored to the rider’s goals. In addition, the center offers trail rides, taking riders on one- or two-hour custom spins around the ranch.
