Riding Ability

We have rated trip options according to the level of equitation skill and physical fitness required to participate, as well as the pace. There are always variables involved, so when in doubt about how your riding ability measures up to the rigors of a ride, call or send us an e-mail. One of our ride consultants will gladly discuss it with you. It is generally best to estimate on the conservative side, especially if you haven’t ridden with us in the past. We do our utmost to ensure that our guests have fantastic experiences and that no one feels pushed beyond their limits or held back by other riders.  Please help us by being realistic about your own ability. The trek guide has full authority to exclude a rider from a trip for inability to ride or behavior which endangers the other riders or the horses.

BEGINNER: A rider who is comfortable and in control at the walk and/or trot but has limited experience trotting and/or cantering.

INTERMEDIATE: A rider who is confident and in control in all paces (including posting trots, two point canters and gallops), but does not ride regularly.

STRONG INTERMEDIATE: An intermediate rider who is currently riding regularly and is comfortable in the saddle for at least 6 hours per day.

 

If you are unsure of your riding ability, or have any other queries, please do not hesitate to contact us by emailing us at riders@enjoyinghorses.com
