What You'll Get

Like all domesticated animals, horses require human guidance to keep from brushing against barbed wire, eating poisonous rocks, and galloping triumphantly into the ocean. Take the reins with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a one-hour guided trail ride for two at Stono River Riding Academy in Johns Island (a $110 value).

A full-scale riding facility nestled amid 360 acres of tranquil trails and scenic nature preserves, Stono River Riding Academy has been tending to horses and their biped brethren for more than 40 years. Expert riders lead equine drivers of all experience levels on guided trail rides that dip and wind their way throughout the serene landscapes of Johns Island, providing all necessary safety equipment from helmet and saddle to earmuffs that block out discouraging words. Take in the views from up high on the saddle of a well-oiled trotting machine as you gallop alongside a buddy, loved one, or trail boss age 5 or older. Riders under age 18 are welcome, though they must bring a waiver signed by a parent or guardian.


Stono River Riding Academy was featured by the Island Connection:

  • Michelle and her husband David, who also helps run the Academy, believe that to teach a person how to ride is only a small part of learning to ride: one must know how to care for a horse in every aspect of the term, from brushing to shoeing to knowing how it feels to ride in a truck towing an occupied horse trailer. – Kristin Hackler

About Stono River Riding Academy

Stono River Riding Academy is a dressage-based riding school owned and operated by David and Michelle Folden that has helped riders connect with temperate steeds and with their natural surroundings on 360 acres of trees and pastures. During classes and leisurely rides, trainers lead mounted explorers through the labyrinthine passageways of Johns Island, passing beneath billowing drapes of Spanish moss and escaping the cacophony of urban areas. The academy also offers a summer camp program as a fun and exciting way to introduce children to the beauty of horses and riding. Stono River’s staff always keeps safety in mind making sure that every one is comfortable and familiar with the basic controls of a horse.
