You'll also get your choice of beer or wine. There will be additional food and drinks available for purchase, as well, so be sure to bring some extra cash.

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 offer: an afternoon of horseback riding and lunch at a Chicagoland horse farm and forest preserve. Start by hoofing it over to 640 North Wells Street, where your equine experts will be chomping at the bit to help you board a premier bus 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 you arrive, half the group will head out for a one-hour beginner horseback trail ride, while the other half will tour the barn, learn about the farm's horses, groom these majestic animals, and learn to lasso with a contest. The groups will then switch places before meeting back at the pavilion for the mane event: a catered hot meal provided by Frankie's Catering -- including chicken vesuvio, pasta primavera, and salad -- with a glass of wine or beer. With bellies full and cheeks rosy, you'll re-board the bus back to the city, satisfied at having reined in your previously unbridled passion for riding.
