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 $25, you get a two-hour guided horseback ride from SK Horses in Estes Park (a $50 value). This Groupon is redeemable at the Cowpoke Corner Corral or National Park Gateway Stables location.
With 25 years of equine experience under their saddle, SK Horses' experienced equestrian ambassadors herd trailblazers from the bottom of Giant Track Mountain past the scenic 'scapes of the Rocky Mountain National Park. A knowledgeable steed whisperer will lead a pony parade of up to seven novice and experienced riders along trails that boast breathtaking views of the Continental Divide or around Horseshoe Park's cowboy-hat-shaped sand traps. Gaze upon the fauna and flora that inhabit the lush escape, and keep sight-spheres peeled for sightings of coyotes, deer, and squirrels disguised as wildflowers. Deeply committed to the cowboy creed, SK Horses bolsters a fun and safe riding experience while maintaining healthy and happy horses. All equipment is provided for each ride, and rides depart hourly.
