Weight Policy

How Our Weight Policy Works:

  1. Our Weight limit, dictated by our liability insurance, is 250 lbs.
  2. The weight limit is non-negotiable and is set for the safety of our riders as well as the health of our horses.
  3. Respecting our guests and their privacy is very important to us and for this reason, riders can expect to be weighed in a private setting if Management is concerned that a rider may be above the designated weight limit.


  1. If a rider appears to be over the weight limit the office staff will respectfully request a private discussion with the rider away from their party.
  2. Our scale is located in our office where the rider will be weighed fully clothed
  3. If the rider is over 250 lbs. sadly, the rider cannot ride for that day and we will offer a full refund as well as discuss an appropriate manner in which the rider would like to notify the rest of their party.
