Noble Ranch asks you to follow these guidelines to provide a safer and more enjoyable riding experience for all:

  • If you would like to ride during a lesson, please ask the teaching instructor’s permission.
  • While warming up your horse, at slow gait, remain off the rail and avoid those moving at faster gaits.
  • If you slow down or halt, move toward the center of the ring.
  • Keep to your right in passing all riders approaching from the opposite direction.
  • Do not stop or turn sharply without first looking behind you to see if the way is clear.
  • If someone is improperly blocking your way, call out ‘RAIL’ loudly enough to be clearly heard.
  • If there is jumping in progress, stay out of the way. The one jumping has the right of way and should not be required to look out for others.
  • Horses being led into the ring should be led on the side next to the rail to prevent them from kicking passers-by.
  • Do not ride on another horse’s heels. No tail gaiting!!!
  • Do not ride your horse in such a manner so as to irritate or excite others horses or riders.
  • If riding on the track to the left at increased gaits, stay on the rail. If riding on the tract to the right at increased gaits, while others are moving in the opposite direction, stay toward the inside of the ring.
  • Time your ring entrance and/or departure so as not to cause interference with others.
  • SAFETY!!! Please think safety first
