Weight Restrictions

For the safety of our customers and the health of our horses, we have a safety weight restriction. Too great a weight on a horse’s back can cause serious injury and thus we have a Customer maximum weight restriction of 90 kg. At the time of Booking, we ask that you discuss your weight, height and riding experience with our staff to ensure that Riders do not exceed the maximum weight allowance that is strictly 90kg.

All Customers are weighed prior to the commencement of their Activity & if we have been INCORRECTLY advised & their weight exceeds the Maximum Safety Weight Restriction, the booking will NOT be rescheduled, NO Credit will be offered and NO Refund will be provided under any circumstances.

Unfortunately, any person that weighs more than the maximum safety weight will not be able to ride with us.

To assist us with horse allocation, all bookings are to indicate the following.

Your Weight Range

Under 70kg 70kg – 80kg 81kg – 90kg    

How many horse rides in the past 12 months

Nil 1-5 6-10 11-15 16-20 21-25 26-30 31-35


NOTE: Refunds will not be given where a customer exceeds the Maximum Safety Weight Restriction of 90kg, so please ensure that correct weights are given for all riders at the time of booking.

If you have incorrectly advised us of your weight and we are unable to allow you to ride on the day, No Refund will be given as per our Refund Policy in the Terms & Conditions.
