We don’t have fixed weight restrictions at Jesters Flat. However, conditions do apply, and if you are outside the average height or weight range, please let us know beforehand so we can match you with the right horse. This also applies if you are very petite and would like a smaller horse.
We supply helmets, boots, fly veils and wet weather gear, so just wear any long trousers and bring some socks. We also supply insect repellent and sunscreen if required.
Minimum age for an escorted horse ride is 6 years. Younger children can be lead on our ponies Flossie, Carolina and Johnston for $25 per child (ponies lead by parents or guardians). Due to safety concerns, no tandem rides are available at any time.
We can organize a private horse riding experience for yourself (and/or your group) at your request. That is, you won’t be on a general tour and have a little more flexibility. Just ask us in advance. The cost is an extra $30 per person. Private Horse riding packages are not available over the school holidays or other peak periods.
Please note that all rates are subject to change without notice and are for information purposes only.
