Your busy schedule may not leave much time for horsing around, but that doesn't mean you have to completely rein in your inner stallion. Put some giddy-up back in your step with this Adventure: an afternoon of horseback riding and wine tasting at one of Chicagoland's most beautiful horse farms and forest preserves.
We'll start by hoofing it over to 640 North Wells Street, where our equine experts will be chomping at the bit to help us board a premier bus from Limos Alive and make the short drive to Forest View Farms in Tinley Park. Located next to the Cook County Forest Preserve, Forest View has been offering horseback riding lessons and other horse-related activities to the Chicago area for more than 50 years. Once we arrive, half the group will head out for a one-hour horseback trail ride, while the other half leaves on a 30- to 40-minute hike along the forest preserve's pristine trails.
The groups will then switch places before meeting back at the pavilion for the mane event: a wine tasting provided by Aged 2 Perfection in a pavilion on the farm. There, we'll dine on a catered hot meal provided by Frankie's Catering, including a chicken entrée, side dish, salad, and dessert. With bellies full and cheeks rosy, we'll re-board the bus back to the city, satisfied at having reined in our previously unbridled passion for riding. This is one Adventure that may make us literally say, "whoa!"
