If horses didnt 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 todays Groupon to Yorktown Stables. Choose from the following options:
All riders must be at least 6 years old and weigh 300 pounds or less.
Accompanied by a herd of gentle horses, Yorktown Stables' talented instructors teach equestrian essentials to students of all skill levels during guided trail rides and group lessons. After being matched with a steed appropriate for their skill level, trail-bound riders receive an informative 30-minute seminar, learning fundamentals such as tacking up, riding safely, and painting a still-life midtrot. Clans of around four human-and-horse duos then embark on an one-hour excursion along trails that snake across more than 100 scenic acres, strolling through verdant wooded areas and open pastures before gazing into the Poquoson River to check if their reflection still works. The stable's knowledgeable guides lead each jaunt and can help novices suit up in the included helmet and riding gear. Trail-ride participants should wear jeans or comfortable slacks and closed-toe shoes.
Group lessons further cultivate students' riding and horsemanship skills. Preceding group course work, all riders must review proper preparation methods before mounting or arguing politics with their noble equine. During lessons, amateurs learn how to correctly saddle a stallion and differentiate between Western and English riding techniques, while experienced students bolster their knowledge of proper grooming and horseshoe-tying techniques. As sessions progress, participants gradually spend more time riding. Students must wear pants, a full-length shirt, and shoes with at least a half-inch-thick heel. Though Yorktown Stables has several helmets available to use, they encourage students to bring their own riding helmet.
