ACTUAL DEPARTURE TIMES MAY VARY
We do our best to stick to the schedule but sometimes getting people ready for their ride takes a little longer. Not to worry, you will still get approximately a one hour ride. Most will add 30-45 minutes onto actual beach ride. For example, a one hour ride always takes an 1 1/2 hours minimum. Please plan accordingly.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We recommend wearing close-toed shoes such as boots or tennis shoes and jeans. We also recommend bringing a very warm coat, or a couple lite weight coverings. While it is not as cold in town and at the stables, the temperature "Typically" drops 10-15 degrees (wind chill) when we hit the beach.
DO I HAVE TO WEAR A HELMET?
We recommend for anyone riding to wear a helmet. 17 and under are required to wear a helmet. 18 years and older do have the option to to fill out the back of our liability form, indicating that you have been fully warned and advised of safety cautions, as well as, to indemnify and hold harmless Bandon Stables and insurance company from any and all claims.
"In general," our weight limit is 240-300lbs. It is always dependent upon height, leg length, agility/balance, experience level and comfort. While we have a variety of horses and saddles, sometimes the gear and tack does not work for certain people. Equally, saddles are not nailed on. They do move from side to side while riding. The heavier the person, the higher probability of yanking the saddle under the horse. We recommend giving us a call if you are over 240lbs, before making a reservation.
Safety of our customers and of our horses is our number one priority. Due to the nature of this business, we reserve our rights to refuse service to anyone.
