Wranglers don’t really know their horses until the two ride together into battle, into the sunset, or side by side on a thrilling rollercoaster. Get to know your trusty steed in style with today’s deal: for $15, you get a one-hour horseback ride at Silver Spur Guest Ranch (a $35 value). Head to the Bandera ranch location for an hour-long ride, or apply the $35 value of your Groupon toward a two-hour horseback ride ($60 regular rate) or your choice of any daytime or overnight horseback packages.
Silver Spur Guest Ranch sprawls out across nearly 300 acres of trail-laden land deep in the heart of Texas Hill Country. Each one-hour guided horseback tour is led by experienced wranglers who know the scenic trails like the hair on the back of their trusty mare, which leaves you free to focus on staying in the saddle, straps, and tranquility of the present moment. As you mosey atop your four-legged carriage, you may feel as though royalty is carrying you through the countryside in a litter, except more rustic and more apt to fight crime with a mere grimace. Take your horse-whispering to the peaks of enthusiastic banter with fellow riders and star-crossed saddle-mates while trotting through tree-saturated fields and mind-massaging meadows that make high-definition nature films look more like standard-definition eight-track tapes.
If you decide to upgrade to a daytime or overnight package, you’ll be treated to a hearty meal, in addition to receiving free rein to enjoy most ranch amenities, including access to surrounding hiking trails, a junior Olympic swimming pool, and more. Saddle up and paddle down the day at Silver Spur Guest Ranch, where guests are treated like kings and kings are treated like admirable commoners with endearing delusions of grandeur.
Must be at least six years old. Silver Spur Guest Ranch has a weight limit of 220 lbs.
