Saddle up at Leone Equestrians, a welcoming acreage on Excelsior Road, where teams of talented instructors have been teaching horsemanship since 1974: • $60 (regularly $120) for two 30-minute private horseback riding lessons Pair up with an experienced trainer and learn the ropes according to your specific skill level. And get this -- you'll spend the entirety of each half-hour session actually on the horse. • $99 (regularly $225) for three 30-minute private equestrian lessons Pay attention -- founder Rudy Leone or World Cup rider Jill Humphrey will lead these lessons. One of these pros will introduce you to the basics -- or, if you're already an advanced rider, Rudy or Jill will take you to the next level. Want more? Check out Leone Equestrians on Facebook.
