    Ready to Ride Horse Racing SimulatorRIDE THE HORSE RACING SIMULATOR


    The racing simulator is a mechanical horse synchronized to move with jockey cam videos.  The simulator will enable our visitors to mount up and experience a jockey's point of view. There are three levels of difficulty: Warm Up, Apprentice, and Jockey.


    We provide a unique experience that will allow the rider to appreciate a few of the qualities required to be a jockey. However, the ride is physically demanding and is not suitable for everyone.


    In order to use the simulator a visitor must:

    • Sign a release
    • Buy a ticket ($5.00 with a paid museum admission - members ride free)
    • Be at least 48" tall
    • Demonstrate the ability to mount the non-motorized equicizer
    • Wear appropriate clothing - no open-toed shoes are allowed.


    Visitors should not ride if they: 

    • Have a bad back, neck, or bone condition
    • Are pregnant
    • Have had recent surgery or illness
    • Have heart trouble
    • Have high blood pressure





    The National Museum of Racing is committed to handicapped accessibility.  Our Museum is now 100% handicap accessible.  Wheelchairs are also available at the front desk.
