Horse riding for children in Bali

Hi,

My kid

s are 14, 8 and 6 yrs and would like to do a horse ride

while we're in Bali.

Does anyone know the best organised, value for money place

to take them,.. they'll only want a one hour ride as they have

never been on a horse before.

Thanks, Kitty

My daughter used to ride so she knew what she was doing, but the friend that went with her , he had never ridden before at all.

They did a ride from Seminyak beach (near the bungee jump are the stables) down to Kuta beach and back. We waited at Kuta beach to see them.

It was 300 000rp for the hour.

Rainbow was the guy and I think it was something like menari stables or Mesari stables.....

there is one guy to each horse leading it....I will dig out the card and post details later.

we have done the one hour sunset ride with Bali Island Horse. they also do longer rides as well. they were very good. we had 9 in our group, the youngest being 5. the horses were beautiful and well cared for. Bali Island Horse is owned and operated by an Australian lady and is located at village of Yeh Gangga just near Tanah Lot. They arrange pick up at your hotel and provide refreshments and the price covers insurance. The drive there is scenic and worth doing. We enjoyed the sunset ride as it was not at all hot and the view was amazing. Half way through the ride on the beach you stop to see a small bat cave.

Bali Island horse have a web site should you wish to find out more.

We were in Seminyak in November and the kids in our group did a ride on the beach in Seminyak with Rainbow. He was brilliant, the girls were 9 and 6, and there was a guy with each of them, he organised small ponies for them and they had a lovely time. At the end of the ride, the 9 year old was cantering along the beach with Rainbow running alongside. I would definitely reccommend.

Here are some rough directions, a couple of doors along from the Pelangi Hotel off Dyana Pura. I think they paid 100 000 each horse for 1 hour, a bit different to other prices quoted - so don't be afraid to negotiate!

Do you have an email address for them or anything?

No email that I know of, it was all very informal, we happened to be staying nearby and chatted to him each day on the way to the beach, he's a very friendly and funny guy. A typical Balinese!

I am sure that most drivers around Seminyak would know the place, if you tell them it's near the Pelangi Hotel. If Rainbow is not around there are usually a couple of young guys there during the day, all very nice and speak English.

Have a great trip. Oh, and beware of Rainbow's pet monkey, he has a habit of lunging at you....quite scary and he has a bad attitude!

and now I have just recovered I have dug out the pamplet.

it definately has written on there 300 000 per hour. Oh well.

They did offer to pick the kids up on motorbikes and drop them back again included.

Anyway the phone number is 733 319.

and it's not far from hotel Dhyana pura. Actually if you ask on the beach there near that hotel and bungee jump tower, they all know him.

I dont know if the email is current but it says mesaristables@yahoo.com
