Ever wonder what it would be like to ride a horse, but not ready to commit to a full session?  Or does your bucket list have "Ride A Horse" near the top?  If this is you, or someone you know, a One Time Ride may be the answer.

RFJ offers a one time riding experience by appointment.  The event will last approximately an hour and a half and will include an evaluation by staff to determine the appropriateness for riding and equine and tack assignment, a barn tour of the program, and approximately 45 minutes of ride time facilitated by RFJ staff.  

Applicants must meet the following minimum criteria:

  • 4 years and older

  • Weigh 200 lbs or less

  • Physically able to sit with torso vertical and legs astride the horse

  • Physically able to maintain head and neck position without assistance

  • A medical diagnosis that does not preclude riding as a safety hazard

Cost is $50 per rider.

A New Student Application must be completed and returned to RFJ BEFORE scheduling an event.  Applications can be faxed to 208 550-3208, emailed to hminer@rideforjoy.org or mailed to 28379 El Paso Rd. Caldwell, ID 83607.

Riders who wish to return and participate in a full session must wait for one complete session before being added to the active rider list.

Please contact Heather Miner at hminer@rideforjoy.org with questions or to schedule a One Time Ride.
