What an unbelievable equestrian experience. 100% customer satisfaction guaranteed. Beautifully safe and perfectly schooled horses, amazing trekking through trail before reaching the huge open beaches which allow you to canter and canter and canter. The care shown by Joe and Cat (and the gorgeous Serina, their 2 years and 8 month old natural horserider daughter) alongside their wonderful staff is truly fantastic. Cat has done a wonderful job with their website which clearly offers the perfect choice of rides for different abilities. Simply awesome and made by 50th birthday trip so so special. Don't hesitate to book ❤️🙏❤️

I booked myself into the beach trail through “whatsapp” and talked to Cat who was very polite and helpful from start until the end. This is a nice little family company which feels very welcoming to arrive to. We were a small group of only me and another girl from Finland and then Joe, the guide. It was very nice to be few people in the group😊 The horses were really nice and had lots of energy and felt very comfortable to sit on. I was surprised to find such a nice place with good management in Thailand 🇹🇭 I would really recommend horse lovers to visit South Arabian Horse Club and go for a lovely beach ride. Thank you 😊

A unforgettable experience on the beach with well trained horses and professional guide who takes really good care of the safety of riders. Very friendly service which starts from the very first message you send them. The horses are well taken care of and in good fit. I really enjoyed my trip and will definitely come back again the next time I’m in Khao Lak. Thank you! ❤️

After searching a while on the web for a nice spot to do horseback riding I found the South Arabian Horse Club. The first contacts by mail were very nice and we were not disappointed on the spot. The Owners are really wonderful people, you can see and feel their passion for what they do. We had a wonderful 3hour Beach Trail experience and even as a beginner I quickly lost my uncertainty thanks to Joe and with great help from the loving and patient Eliza🥰 After returning we were welcomed with cool drinks by Cat. Again thank you so much Cat and Joe and best of luck for all your future plans. Hope to see you again one day!

I had opted to do a one hour ride in the rubber plantation, but was offered the recently opened mountain ride. It started with sharp inclines and declines, with the horses having to navigate through rough terrain. Vegetation hung over the paths and the guide should have instructed us to dismount. He didn't but Indiana Jones like steamed ahead, bamboo dropped down and I was knocked off the horse by the neck. Severe injuries have resulted and I will be on medication for at least six weeks.

Dear Sally. Let us respond to you with our sincerity and honesty. The situation as we know it is that you contacted us again on 24th October (after already riding an Option B Beach 21st October), wanting to book for another 3 hours Beach trail in the morning, which was not possible due to the water tides and we suggested a 1-hour forest trail instead. You then booked for Saturday morning at 08:30 on the 26th. The day before your ride, we had a 2 hours Beginner trail, with two inexperienced riders riding on the same Mountain trail that you would ride, and therefore the reason why we gave you the OPTION TO CHOOSE whether you would like to ride the Mountain trail or Forest trail. And you choose to ride the Mountain trail on your own, and it was the exact same trail the Beginners rode the day before you, and the exact same trail when you rode with us for your second out of 4 times on February 3rd, 2019. Inclines and declines are a part of riding a Mountain trail, and vegetation is a part of riding outdoors, especially in a tropical rainforest. When you mention that you should´ve dismounted the horse, it could not be an option because you could not mount the horse without a stool, which was not to be found anywhere in the forest and on a mountain, and since the trail leader had no incident with beginner riders crossing under the same bamboo the day before, he therefore decided to choose to tell you to bow your head and walk with the horse. On the path where the incident occurred, there was bamboo hanging over the way. The trail leader had no problem to bow his head to ride through it, and he waited on the other side for you to ride after him. He told you to bow your head down and walk slowly as he had done, but you did not control the horse to walk, instead, you let him trot 4-5 steps downhill towards the hanging bamboo which did not give you time enough time to bow your head. And unfortunately, the little finger-sized bamboo branch broke on your neck, giving you a slight cut on your throat when pulling you back off the horse, falling down on your left hip. The trail leader then looked to you immediately and examined you with his medical background experience to see that you could move your body, legs, arms, and back. And examined the wound caused by the bamboo, which was an approximately 1 millimeter deep and 8 millimeters long cut, that caused a few drops of blood that stopped dripping after a short time. And he then doublechecked your lower back and saw that you did not have any scratches or bruises. You managed to walk 200 meters to reach the telephone signal point and wait for Cat to come and pick you up, because you refused to get back on the horseback. We are of course very sorry this accident happened, and wish not for neither you or the good name and intentions of our business to be weighed up against this one-time accident. Especially when you have been riding with us for 4 times now, and have already been on the exact same trail and with the same trail leader before without any problem. (3rd February 2019) And when Cat drove you back to the hotel, you declined offered wipes for you to clean yourself up, accepted the refund of 2/3 rds of the money as a sorry from us that you had a bad experience, and declined the offer to pick up your husband to drive you to the Medical Clinic. We wrote to you later in the evening to ask how you were, and you answered that you had to rest for one week, and had to go back to the doctor because of a deep cut to the neck. We wished you a good recovery and did not hear anymore from you until this review on TA. We will take this very seriously, and in the future be more careful for both the rider and ourselves, making sure that every path is fit for every level of riders and their personal abilities. We wish you still a good recovery and may the small cut and rashes to your throat be healed quickly as well as your sore back. Sincerely, The Owners of South Arabian Horse Club Serina, Catarina, and Joe
