Ready to Ride Horse Racing SimulatorREADY TO RIDE! HORSE RACING SIMULATOR


The racing simulator is a mechanical horse synchronized with sensors to respond to your balance and movement during a simulated race experience.  The simulator will enable our visitors to mount up and experience a jockey's point of view while racing at historic Saratoga Race Course.


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 simulator ticket at the Front Desk ($10.00)
  • Be at least 60" tall
  • Demonstrate the ability to mount the non-motorized equicizer
  • Wear appropriate clothing - no open-toed shoes or clogs allowed are allowed (heel must be enclosed).


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.
