Mounted police opt for equine transportation so they don’t have to deal with the squad car's wailing thirst for gas and justice. Avoid similar automotive appetites with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a one-hour guided horseback trail ride for two at Stono River Riding Academy on Johns Island (a $110 value).

Established in 1969, Stono River Riding Academy saddles up riders for bucolic equine adventures amid 360 acres of scenic nature preserves. Each one-hour trail ride takes saddle straddlers hoofing through the labyrinthine passageways of Johns Island, underneath billowing drapes of peat moss and away from the cacophonous gridlock of urban life and roommates' dirty laundry. Invite a significant other to make the two-person excursion a romantic horseback jaunt, or enlist a frenemy and form your own Lone Ranger-Tonto diametric. Stono River’s expert equestrians chauffeur groups through tranquil trails with safety always in mind, keeping riders from straying into gobs of chewed gum. Today’s deal outfits duos with all necessary equipment, including helmets and horse telepathy.

Stono River Riding Academy

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.
