We pre-booked our visit by phone because Happy Ranch gets busy. It was easy to get to from the centre of town by tuktuk. Our horses were tacked up and ready to go when we got there (make sure to provide information on rider experience and height/weight before going). We were outfitted with helmets and borrowed chaps. We were given information about our horses and their personalities (they're like people: sometimes they don't like each other or have quirky habits!) and rode around the ring to get comfortable on the horses. Then we headed on our way with our guide (she is volunteering at the stable). She led us through the countryside and we saw people and sights that you won't see in downtown Siem Reap. It was a very enjoyable ride, and the pace can be adapted based on your riding experience. Upon returning to the stables, we met the owner and talked with him for a while. Our daughter, a horse enthusiast, enjoyed wandering around the property inquiring about the horses when we were done riding. Overall, we had a fantastic experience. It was a great change of pace from visiting the temples all day, and a fun experience for a child. The pony our 8 year old was given (Silver) was perfect for her! I would highly recommend a ride at Happy Ranch!
