Great beach and forest horse rides
May 2019 • Friends
Easy to book beautiful beach rides and the owners communicate in English. I’m an experienced rider and did a beach ride at sunset today. Am going back tomorrow for another round. Horses are well cared for compared to other clubs here, and the owner is great with teaching new riders as well. A must visit if you love horses and are in Phuket.

Horses not taken care of
Mar 2019 • Solo
The guide and stuff were friendly and all went as planned on that part. Guide did not speak English though. They even took a lot of pictures of me riding. The beach we rode on was amazing and as an experience it was one of the best ones in my vacation.

Although the barn rules of the stable say that "horses are our best friends", unfortunately the horse I was riding was skinny and clearly out of energy. It kept as well strange noice when in water, like it was not healthy. Horses did not have shoes on even though we rode a long way on hard concrete road. The guide got frustrated with his horse being scared and started tearing the reins and kicking his horse harshly. My horse was so thirsty that it drank seawater and so hungry that it ate from every bush it could reach along the way to the beach. When we got back to the stable, horses had no food nor water in their boxes. That made me really sad.

This could be a great place to experience riding in the beach if the horses were taken care of. If you care about animals, I would think twice before attending.

Our sunset ride was very memorable and amazing. Beautiful horses wuth friendly guides were also nice.
It was kind of hard to book by an e-mail so ask your hotel to make a reservation for you. It was easier.
Horse riding with sunset and amazing Mai Kao beach view was just perfect to us.

If I have another vacation in Phuket I will definitely do this again.

Phuket Horse Riding
Jul 2018 • Family
Great place, great horses and friendly guides. If you know how to ride it's more fun, they hold your horse back and you can get up to a fast canter. My family are all beginners and the horses they had were fantastic. The horses are so well kept I even asked to look at the stables after the ride and they were impeccable. Even showed me what they were fed, very well run. Would highly recommend this riding stable. The only thing I probably could say is some of the guides had limited English. Was really good, couldn't go along the beach the day we went as high tide was in and it was rough. Go do it, it's fun.

Sunset horseback riding with mixed feelings
Aug 2018 • Couples
The Phuket Riding Club has beautiful horses. They look very healthy and taken care of. They have transparent fixed prices: 1200/1700/2200 for 1/1½/2 hours. You know what you get. Included are trousers, riding boots and even socks. And afterwards water. Their location is very pretty in the north of Phuket near the beach. We rode with just the 2 of us and a guide on horse in front. It was going to be a great horse ride. But unfortunately our experience was not thát great.

We booked a 2 hour sunset ride. We hoped for a beautiful tour through the jungle and on the beach. But we were back in less than 1½ hour. When we made remarks about it the first thing the owner said was "no refund". It became a strange situation and our guide was summoned to finish the tour.

It was obvious he didn't want to go any more. We went to the beach again, he stayed behind and we got 20 minutes to go our own way back and forth on the beach to fill up the time. Afterwards in the discussion we were told that our guide had asked us if we wanted to go back and we had said OK. But our guide couldn't speak English other than OK, so how could he have asked us?

The conversation afterwards was hard, because suddenly the owner didn't understand English very well. But at the start when we had to pay and we had some questions we didn't notice any of these communication problems.

From the start the guide had no control over his horse. So he let us go in front and stayed far behind. Our horses were used to following a leader and it became a strange and confusing situation for the horses and for us. We are experienced riders, but to let us go with strange horses in a strange place by ourselves on an infinite beach with people around doesn't sound like a good idea.

We would have liked the 2 hour tour to have been a combination of the field and the beach. But clearly they think that tourists only want to ride on the beach and go fast. That's why we went to and fro on the beach in a fast pace. We think this is a lot of fun, but a bit more variety would also have been nice.

So when you go horseriding here just keep this in mind.

Great experience
Apr 2018 • Family
We enjoyed this a lot. We took our 2 daughters, aged 5 and 10. They did a great job ensuring the kids were comfortable. The horses seemed in great condition and the guides genuinely seemed to care for them.

Walked through jungle path then beach on pony
Jun 2017 • Family
I was shocked when I saw the emaciated appearance of the pony led out for my daughter. My pony was very skinny and I wondered about my personal morals riding it but I let him eat grass on our ride. The pony was too small for my height and experience and not energetic. The man leading my daughter had a thin whip which I asked him not to use. I would hate my review to further decrease animal wellbeing or welfare in Thailand. The ride was ok with riders permitted a degree of freedom on the beach but on a small skinny pony I couldn't enjoy the experience as much as I had hoped to.
