Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measure for human body shape based on an individual's mass and height. As it relates to horseback riding, as a rider's BMI increases their center of gravity gets higher, there by reducing the rider's ability to stabilize themselves in the saddle. Because horseback riding is a physical sport, it is critical that we evaluate each rider's BMI when determining if he or she can safely negotiate the mountainous terrain in which we ride.
Fully clothed, the BMI for female riders may not exceed 32 and the BMI for male riders may not exceed 34 AND rider's maximum total weight may not exceed 250 lbs. Each rider's height and weight may be confirmed upon check in. These restrictions are for the safety and comfort of our guests & our horses and are in no way meant to cause embarrassment or ill will.
