Terms & Conditions

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


  • Riders must arrive 30 minutes before scheduled ride for a safety talk and trip preparation
  • To ensure the utmost safety for both our guests and health of our horses, Insurance dictates the following requirements for participating riders:
    • One rider per horse
    • Riders must be at least 8 years of age to ride on trail rides
    • Riders must be 250 lbs or under. Our weight limit is for safety purposes for our horses and riders and all riders over the age of 18 will be weighed upon check in
    • Riders are prohibited to ride under the influence of alcohol or any other substance
  • Our rides do go out in all safe weather conditions whether rain or shine. If a cancellation is made by Academy Riding Stables, for any reason, we will diligently work to reschedule you for another ride or provide a full refund
  • We won’t be held responsible for lost/damaged electronics or other valuables. Please secure all electronics like GoPros, Camera’s, iPhones etc properly before you ride out. 
  • We will try our best to reschedule rides based on availability. Refunds will be issued if a ride cannot be rescheduled after exhausting all other options
  • We reserve the right to withdraw any person who in our opinion is likely to endanger themselves or others. We also reserve the right to cancel a ride if we become concerned for any reason for the safety of anyone on the ride.
  • Cancellations or changes to reservations must be made by telephone at least 48 hours before departure to avoid full charge without possibility of a refund
  • Every rider MUST sign the release form and bring it with you when you check-in for your ride.  You can download the release form here or from your confirmation email. 

Cancelling your horse ride affects our business significantly as we have often turned away other customers to secure your spot. Most of our guests reserve their horse ride well in advance so it is difficult to replace a reservation at late notice and for this reason our policy is strictly adhered to.
