What You'll Get
The bond between man and horse is as revered as the partnership of Marc Antony and Cleopatra, mirroring her desire to lead and his love of oats and barley. Forge a four-legged friendship with today's Groupon: for $48, you get two private horseback-riding lessons at SilverLeaf Farm, located in Walworth (a $130 value).
Created by competitive rider Jet Rusidovski, SilverLeaf Farm gives aspiring equestrians the necessary training to become confident horseback riders. With more than a decade of professional horse-whispering experience, Jet helps young students learn all aspects of riding while atop a representative of SilverLeaf's calm and composed stable of steeds. With this deal, you'll get two one-hour lessons, which include preparing the horse for its mid-day gallop, plus 30 to 45 minutes of time in the saddle. The indoor facilities at SilverLeaf Farm allow for year-round lessons, and heated rooms that look out across the stable allow parents to watch comfortably while their children trot, lope, and practice secret hoofshakes. For added safety for the rider and comfort for the animal, the flooring is made of Permaflex soft rubber, which can help to cushion the rider in the event of a fall or an impromptu break-dance challenge.
