Beltway traffic, metro delays, motorcades—it's enough to make you long for the days when horses were our primary mode of transportation. Put road rage and out-of-order escalators in your rear view mirror with this Adventure: a guided horseback trail ride through the Shenandoah mountains followed by a catered lunch and a wine tasting and a light dessert platter at Desert Rose Ranch & Winery.
First, trot over to LivingSocial headquarters at 918 F Street where our team of trail hands will be waiting. We'll board our private coach and make our way to Marriott Ranch in Hume, Virginia. Once we arrive, we'll meet our new equine friends and jump in the saddles for a 90-minute guided horseback ride through a beautiful 4,200-acre working cattle ranch.
When we return, we'll head next door to Desert Rose Ranch & Winery to tend to our empty bellies with a catered meal by Au Bon Pain. With bodies refueled, the experts from Desert Rose will lead us through an educational lesson on six of the winery's most notable varieties. We'll finish with bites from a delicious light dessert platter and take advantage of discounts on Desert Rose wine purchases. Go ahead, take the reins for a hassle-free day on the ranch. After all, rush hour gridlock may be a fact in the District, but that doesn't mean we have to put a simpler way of life out to pasture.
