If horses didn’t regularly pack the earth down with their hooves, it would continue to gradually rise skyward on a collision course with the moon. Help keep the night sun in the sky with today’s Groupon: for $60, you get a two-hour trail ride for two people from Splendor Farms in Bush (a $120 value).

Splendor Farms' equestrian ushers guide visitors aged 12 and older along 1,000 acres of scenic trails bordering the historic Bogue Chitto River. Customers can splash over creeks and through dense woods or travel to select grandmothers' houses atop one of many qualified horses, keeping peepers peeled to catch a glimpse of local wildlife, such as deer, egret, or heron. Gifted gallopers can speed through generous riding fields, while less experienced travelers can perch atop mellow trailblazers well bred enough to politely share a scrumptious salt lick. Visitors are encouraged to pack a picnic lunch for some in-the-saddle snacking as eyes feast on the picturesque grounds and the flutter of activity surrounding the 75-acre fully functional farm. Splendor Farms asks that all riders wear hard-soled shoes and long pants, as skorts have a tendency to spook fashion-conscious mares. In addition to housing about 30 horses, Splendor Farms is a proud member of HARP, a nonprofit dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating hooved animals that have suffered from abuse or neglect.

Splendor Farms offers various discounts online, but this Groupon still provides the best available deal.

Splendor Farms

One hour from New Orleans, Splendor Farms sits on 75 acres near the Bogue Chitto River. The working farm houses goats, horses, chickens, and a miniature-long-haired-dachshund kennel; guests can gather eggs and pick vegetables from the garden or just relax by the pool. Each of the bed and breakfast’s rooms has a private entrance and its own personality—the Ponderosa room has a distinct cowboy theme, with Western prints on the walls and an equestrian quilt, whereas La Louisiane is more romantic, with flowers and candles scattered around the room.

Every morning, you’ll wake up to a farm-hearty breakfast, with eggs, grits, and bacon making regular appearances on the menu. After eating your fill, head outside to visit the farm’s petting zoo, which has friendly miniature horses, alpacas, and burros. In nearby Covington, five-star restaurants abound, as do art galleries, bookstores, and boutiques.

Customer Reviews

Our favorite thing about Splendor Farms was the delicious breakfast that Kelly prepared for us daily. Everything was so good. But everything from the horseback riding, to all the farm animals, and the southern hospitality were all top notch.
