About our Horses
All riders must weigh 200lbs. or under for the type of horses we have.
An average healthy horse can comfortably carry 20% of his body weight. Most of our horses weigh around 1000 lbs, However this also depends on the age and physical condition of the horse. Some horses have an early onset of arthritis or other physical conditions. This means a 1500lb horse may only still be able to carry 200lbs. However a healthy 1200lb horse in great physical condition most likely will be able to carry the full 20%.
Your Wrangler knows the horses and will best fit the horse for your and his comfort level! Each year new horses come in and we adjust horses according to their ability.
When you fill out your ride request form please be honest and feel free to talk about your personality. If you are feeling nervous or confident this will also help your Wrangler find the best match for you! If you have any questions feel free to send a note and someone should get back to you within 24 hrs.
Staying with us and you are over the weight limit? Please check out our non mounted activities!
