Q. Can my son or daughter ride a horse by themselves?

A. Children over the age of 9 may ride alone assuming they are of at least average height and weight for their age. Children age 8 and under typically require a hand lead. Please note that NY state law requires children 13 years of age and younger to wear helmets when riding, so please be sure to bring your child's bicycle helmet if they are under this age. *If you have a child under the age of 5, please contact us for additional information.
