Frequently Asked Questions
1. Do you have height, weight, and age requirements for each horseback rider?
For the safety of horse and rider, height and weight is a requirement. The weight limit is 225 pounds. There are a limited number of horses for this weight range. There are more available horses for rides less than 200 pounds. There are also age requirements for children. Based on weight of rider and age of child, the number of available seats may change. Also, there must be a certain number of adults per number of children based on the child's age. No children are permitted to ride without an accompanying adult.
2. How long are the trail rides?
The actual time on a horse will be 1.5 hours, 2 hours, or 2.5 hours, depending on the package you choose. Years of experience has shown us that most riders will enjoy these time frames. If you have never ridden before or have not been on a trail ride in many years, the 1.5 hour trail would be a perfect place for you to start!
3. Can I cancel the trail ride due to inclement weather?
We provide trail ride services throughout the year. Usually there are never any cancellations due to weather, but when the weather is problematic, and when the trail is affected by heavy rains or winds, we are going to have to cancel the excursion. We make sure to cancel only when it is required for the safety and security of you, your party, and of course, the horses. We want to make sure that the ride is fun and memorable, and we do not want to put anyone at risk due to unwise trail ride decisions related to poor weather conditions. Cancellation of the trail ride will be based on Operator's Safety Guidelines, and at the discretion of the Operator/Trail Guide. A rain check will be issued with no expiration date. Please see our cancellation policy for further details.
