Phuket Horse Riding Club
Popular Activities in Phuket
Riding horses on the beach with their hooves splashing in the surf might seem like something out of a movie or a commercial, but at the Phuket Horse Riding Club in Rawai this incredible experience is a daily reality. In addition to the more extravagant beach riding, there are more conventional riding experiences available, meaning the club has something to suit every taste, making it one of the most popular activities in Phuket.
It also boasts a large stable of horses and ponies, which ensures that riders of all ages and sizes can find a suitable mount that fits them appropriately. Very large riders might want to call ahead and ask if there are any horses that can fit them, since there are weight limits for the horses, but in general most everyone can participate.
One of the best aspects of horseback riding in Phuket is the chance to explore some places that simply cannot be reached by car or really any other way. The horses are nimble and small enough that they can navigate some treacherous terrain to find secret gems in Phuket’s interior, such as dark mangrove forests or hidden mountaintop scenic spots.
Riding the horses is fun in its own right, of course, but exploring the island and getting to see things that very few other tourists ever get to is an unforgettable experience.
The prices at the Phuket Horse Riding Club are reasonable, for both kids and adults. The staff are highly professional and competent and will help experienced and novice riders alike to have a great time. The club does offer more serious lessons for avid young riders in addition to the more casual programs that most tourists opt for. In all, horse lovers in Phuket who want to go for a ride will quickly discover that Phuket Horse Riding Club is a fantastic choice.
