I`ve been riding at the Umalas stables a few times in the past but when I went to make a booking they were closed down so the website referred me to Bali Horse Riding. Horses looked healthy and looked after and the owners were very nice people.
In the week that I was visiting Bali, I rode here 2 different times.
The first ride, I took my girlfriend who is a complete beginner. She was on a lead rein attached to her guide who gave her lots of tips. I think she was quite nervous in the beginning but by the end of the ride she really enjoyed it and also discovered a few muscles she never knew she had. We booked for a 2 hour ride starting at 4pm. We rode down echo beach where it was super quiet except for a few local fisherman.
Few days later I went back with my husband who isn`t the best rider but manages to stay in the saddle and has no fear of speed. Unfortunately it was a public holiday and there were TONS of people on the beach. I`m not sure why but we took a different route, riding towards the W and Kudeta. I wonder if it would have been less busy had we gone the other way?! Either way I galloped a few times and my guide was brilliant with the camera. I have some amazing shots.. Thank you! I had asked the owner to put me on a more forward going horse than the previous ride and he was definitely quick!
I`ll definitely be coming back the next time I am in Bali.

Dear Suzuki, thanks for your honest review on Tripadvisor. We are very happy our horses are healthy and proud our guest can see that we take good care of them. As we do have some different routes i think the guides choosed towards Kuta to avoid that you are bored on the same route. Some other factors are hight tide and low tide and of course o lot of people on the beach can be the reason to choose a different route. For us personally is the route towards Tanah lot fantastic and just lovely although we go this way for 5 years already when we go riding. Thanks for supporting us.... The Bali Horse Adventure Team
