Rules for Your Ride

Please be sure you have read and understood the below as you book your ride:

Reservation and Missed Ride Policy

All reservations must be made online. Cancellations or Changes To reservations must be made by telephone at least 48 hours prior to your ride to avoid being charged in full without the possibility of a refund. Cancelling your horse ride affects business significantly as we have often turned away other customers to secure your spot. Most of our guests reserve their horse well in advance so it is difficult to replace a reservation at late notice. For this reason we strictly adhere to our Reservation Policy.


Being On Time is Very Important


Please come 30 minutes before your ride for our safety talk and trip preparation .If you are late, you may possibly forfeit your reservation or have to be rescheduled for another ride time.

All rides will begin promptly in order to maintain schedule for previous and following rides.

Weight Limits

For your safety and the well-being of our horses the weight limit is 250 lbs.

Because of our Liability Insurance, we are strict about our weight limit. Our limits are set to ensure the safety of both the rider and the longevity of our horses.
