Whether you’re looking for gifts for the holidays, birthdays or as wedding gifts, there are the old standards. Books, clothes, coffee gift certificates and computer related items are always popular. However, these gifts fade into the background. It’s more meaningful to gift an experience rather than a thing. When you’re looking for the perfect gift, consider horseback riding lessons from Chukkar Farms.
For the Novice
Riders new to handling a horse, should be gifted with trail riding lessons. In this class, Sue Lukashevich walks riders through the basics. The class will begin with getting to know the horse and the equipment. For many, this is the hardest part of the class. Meeting a horse for the first time is like meeting a new friend and you may need a moment to get comfortable.
As the class progresses, riders learn trail etiquette and safety. Before you know it, you’ll be off on your own. As horses are often used in therapy of all kinds, these classes are wonderful for developing confidence in children and adults. There’s just something so special about the bond which develops between horse and rider. Before you know it, the door will open to horseback riding lessons of all kinds.
For the Athlete
Polo may seem like something only professional athletes or royalty participate in. At Chukkar Farms we view polo the way that you would view golf. Polo is a wonderful weekend activity, meant for young and old. This is a great gift for bridesmaids or groomsmen as polo could become the weekend sport which brings you all back together after the wedding festivities have ended.
Polo lessons, taught by Sue Lukashevich, are geared toward creating total players. Sue uses her extensive background in polo to teach you how to win and enjoy the game. Polo lessons are so out of the box when it comes to gifts, your friends will be beaming as they open the gift certificate.
In addition to horesback riding lessons, there are concerts at Chukkar Farms. A night under the stars, watching amazing performers is great for anyone on your list. Especially for couples which have just gotten engaged, a gift certificate for concert tickets gives them some time together and may help them decide on a wedding venue or wedding band.
We look forward to creating a gift package your family and friends will never forget!
