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 $66, you get a one-hour private weekday-express horseback-riding lesson at Traditional Equitation School in Burbank (a $146 value). Lessons are available Tuesday–Friday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Traditional Equitation School introduces bipeds to equine-style movement with a teaching style approved by the prestigious British Horse Society. For 30 minutes, expert trainers work one-on-one with students, elucidating the process of tacking a horse, including how to approach a steed, how to lead, and how to french-braid its mane while it sleeps. Then, a 30-minute riding lesson adheres to English or Western style, illuminating the processes of walking, trotting, and turning. In order to mount one of the school’s well-trained broncos, students must be in good health, don a helmet, riding boots, and jeans or breeches, and resist the temptation to wear a horse costume and befriend the steeds.

Traditional Equitation School

Traditional Equitation School's experienced trainers introduce bipeds to equine-style movement with a teaching method approved by the prestigious British Horse Society. The team guides students toward saddled proficiency with three riding programs that include jumping, dressage, and Western riding styles. Private and semiprivate classes allow budding equestrians to experience one-on-one instruction, and group classes let them constructively critique the way other students ride into the sunset. Instructors also focus on younger riders with toddler classes and day camps, where they illuminate horse breeds and general horse handling.

Lessons take place at a 72-acre equestrian show-and-boarding facility, stretched across small and large grass fields surrounded by oaks and pines. Riders rest on an outdoor patio, practice skills on weather-resistant footing, and ride late into the evening under powerful floodlights. In order to mount one of the school’s horses, students must be in good health, don a helmet, riding boots, and jeans or breeches, and resist the temptation to wear a horse costume and befriend the steeds. While the school strives to accommodate riders of all experience levels, its facilities are not equipped to accommodate riders with physical, sensory, or cognitive disabilities.

Customer Reviews

I was so impressed with TES!! I am so happy I decided to purchase the Groupon and try them out!! My daughters had their lessons with Rick and Abi. Both instructors were fantastic!! I would highly recommend them both! They were both so professional and caring, explaining every detail to my daughters. Their love for the sport was so obvious in their instructions- thank you so much to you both!! Also, Andrea at the office was extremely helpful from the moment I called to make the appointment. She was full of information and just so nice and friendly. TES is like a big family inviting you to visit!! Thanks again!!
