  • The health and safety of our houses is our top priority. Therefore, a weight limit strictly enforced. The maximum they can carry is 240 pounds. If necessary, we will weigh riders privately at check-in and if you exceed the limits, you cannot ride, and no refunds will be given. It is your responsibility to know your weight before arriving at the stables to ensure you are eligible to participate
  • The age minimum is 8 years old for Trail Rides. Due to our concern with the risk to your child’s safety, we do not offer any double riding. Children 8-12 years old are required to wear a helmet
