Can someone with disabilities ride your horses?
As a Certified Horsemanship Association accredited facility, we're able to accomodate most guests regardless of their previous horseback riding experience. However, all riders must be able to mount, dismount, start, steer and stop their own horse and be able to follow basic horseback riding safety instructions. If our guides deem a rider to be unable to safely ride a horse, we will not allow them to ride.
