Safety Information

This is a must-read as you agree to these terms when you register

We strive to run safe trips. All guests should realize the inherent dangers in horseback riding and other outdoor activities.

They should be in good physical condition. Each guest will be required to sign an “Agreement to Participate and An Affirmation of Risk” (see waiver form below). Guests under the age of eighteen will need a parent’s signature on the agreement. Only parents and legal guardians can sign these forms. If you are bringing your kid’s friends, these forms can be downloaded from our website in advance of your stay/ride so their parent/guardian can sign the waiver and date it the day(s) they will be here.

Pregnant riders must have signed authorization from your OB-GYN stating you are able to ride and the date you are going to ride. If you do not have a written “okay from your doctor” we CANNOT let you ride.

We ride Western. All of the rides are guided. We do not allow double riding. Children must wear helmets, which we provide. Riders with no experience are welcome!

Please Note: Persons over 250 pounds are not able to be adequately accommodated due to saddle size, their comfort, and the comfort of our horses. We hope you understand that for the safety, comfort, and well being of everyone involved that we cannot allow persons over 250 pounds to ride with us.
