For safety and animal welfare, there is a maximum weight limit of 85kg.

Please be aware that our maximum weight limit may be lower than 85kg and is subject to variation according to what horses are available for riding on the day of your visit.

We are unable to guarantee that a suitable horse will be available on the day of your visit however every effort will be made to provide you with a suitable horse.

In addition to a rider’s weight, we do also take into account a rider’s height to weight ratio, riding experience, general muscle tone and fitness when assessing whether we have a suitable horse available.

Before commencing a lesson, all new students will undertake a riding assessment for our instructors to be able to allocate students to a suitable group, or to design a personalised riding program.
