Horse riding in goa ?? The answer

I have been to india 5 times now over the last fifteen years. I used to go to a bar in betilbatim and ride a horse called queeny. over the years i saw her have a foal. I have tried googling this and cannot find anything now. only forums on here where people have asked the question and their answers that say" your mad there are no horses in goa". WELL there was I rode her 6 times from betalbatim to colva. met my partner had a quick beer then rode back. If any one remembers this let me know, would like to know what happened to them. (I rode her in 2004, 2007, 2008 twice, 2010 twice., they had another two horses i think. so the answer to the first question i saw YES there were horses in goa when you asked.

The horses where at Greenlands almost as far as Majorda.

Janine is now back in the UK I understand as she had a baby. The people in that area or Alex's bar will give details I am sure.

I haven't seen the horses along the beach lately but then I have not been on the beach much this year.

Yes there were horses at Greenlands when Janine was there, my husband and I have taken over the restaurant from Janine who is also a friend, but unfortunately the horses are no longer there. The local equivalent of the council decided that the horses could no longer be ridden on the beach, therefore they were not getting any exercise so they were given away to people who could look after them. I'm also afraid Queenie passed away about a year or so ago. Should you visit Goa this season do come and meet us, Claire & Roger, our website is www.greenlandsgoa.com

Do farms in Goa keep horses? Perhaps the famous farm in Siolim,BBardez, Goa. Today we saw a young brown horse grazing & we wanted to show a little boy after collecting him from school but the horse must have wandered off to the fields. In the past in 1975/1976 I have seen tourists riding on my road near Chowgule college7,Margao.
