Since the ancient days of yore, horses have been heralded as the most chivalric of animals, participating in historic battles, entertaining joust crowds, and always opening barn doors in the presence of lady beasts. Reclaim your knighthood charm with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a one-hour private horseback-riding lesson at Woodlands Equestrian Club in Tomball (a $60 value). Woodlands also offers hunter and jumping programs for more advanced riders, along with an Andalusian horses program.
Lead by 18-year veteran Juan Vendrell, the riding school at Woodlands Equestrian Club focuses on producing quality riders with superior horsemanship skills. During lessons, riders learn the principles of dressage, a method of training that engages both the horse and the rider to build cross-species relations and ready both parties for organized competition. Students will focus on English hunt seat riding, as well as aspects of horse care to ensure they can ride skillfully and responsibly, even if students only long to ride alongside their favorite fast-moving locomotive.
