Reservations

To make a reservation, please call (541) 997-7540 between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. daily.

We do require a credit or debit card number to hold your reservation.

Your Reservation Time

Your reservation time is your time to arrive, not the start of your ride. This allows time to fill out paperwork, visit the restroom, empty your pockets, adjust clothing, etc. 15-30 minutes after your Reservation Time, you will begin the horse selection and mounting process. 15-30 minutes after that, you will begin your actual ride. For example, a 2:00 p.m. reservation for a 1 1/2 hour ride may not leave the corral until 3:00 p.m. and may not return until 4:30 p.m. or 4:45 p.m. Please plan accordingly.

Age Restrictions

Children under 10 years must be accompanied by an adult during the ride.

Any rider under 18 is required to wear a helmet and is required to have parent or legal guardian’s signature on both Sign-In and Participant Forms.

NOTE: Please remember a legal guardian is not just a friend or other family member. Required forms can be accessed below, printed out ahead of time, signed by parent or legal guardian, and then sent in with the minor.

Horseback Riding Forms

Before You Ride


Policies of C & M Stables

For a safe and enjoyable riding experience, please observe our rules.

WEIGHT RESTRICTION:

For safety purposes, there is a maximum weight limit of 285 lbs. If you weigh more than 200 lbs or are taller than 6’0″, please talk with us before you make a reservation. Safety calculations are made based on the height and weight of both the rider and the horse.

PRE-RIDE FORMS

We require individual Pre-Ride forms from each rider.

Riders 17 and under are required to have their parent or legal guardian complete and sign their Pre-Ride forms.

NOTE:  Please remember that a legal guardian is not just a friend or other family member.  To avoid disappointment, the Pre-Ride forms can be printed out ahead of time, signed by the parent or legal guardian, and then sent in with the minor.

HELMETS

Riders 17 and under are required to wear a helmet

Riders 18 and older are advised to wear a helmet – or required to sign the helmet release portion of the Pre-Ride forms.

Riders may bring their own helmets or we will provide them at no charge.

RESERVATIONS

Reservations are recommended, but drop-ins are welcome.

Our ride times change throughout the year.  Please call ahead to learn our current schedule.

We require a credit or debit card number to hold your reservation.

All cancellations or changes in the number of riders must be made by 5 PM the day prior to your ride.  No shows will be charged full price unless C&M Stables cancels the ride due to weather conditions.

We ride rain or shine unless we believe it to be unsafe.  If we believe conditions to be unsafe, we will try to call you at least 1 hour prior to your scheduled arrival time.

If concerned about the weather, please call C&M Stables for updated conditions and remember: Micro weather at C&M is often much better than the Valley or elsewhere on the Coast.

If riders wish to cancel or re-schedule because of weather, C & M Stables must be notified at least 1 hour before your scheduled arrival time.

The number of riders refers to the number in your individual party.

Any person with a medical condition should notify us at the time of reservation to discuss whether or not horseback riding is suitable for them. Sorry, we do not allow pregnant women on the rides.

Group rates may be available.  Please call to discuss.
