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 mailed to P.O. Box 140295 Boise, ID 83714 at least two weeks prior to the event. 

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