excursion question,

We are doing the horseback riding in San Juan. Do they really weigh you before you go on the excursion. They say max weight is 250 and DDBF is about 270. He is not fat just very tall and big guy.

Thanks for any help you can provide

Judy

The weight limit is for the safety of both the animal and the rider. While he may be big and tall, I don't know why someone would choose to endanger the horse and themselves by not following the rules.

This is a Disney rules not the company. I called the company and their rule is 275. I was not advocating injuring a horse, I was just asking a question based on the two limits

That wasn't your actual question, though. This is first post about a discrepancy between the limits. Your question was if people are weighed before the excursion.

So focusing on the question ... Scales are available for those who appear close to the threshold. Call them directly and discuss your situation.
