Horse riding on Koh Phangan

Could anyone tell me if there is somewhere on Koh Phangan to go horse riding preferably on the beach.

We are also staying in Koh Samui & have asked the same question on that forum & there doesn't seem to be anywhere that you can go horse riding there.

If your daughter loves to ride a horse then please don't google it.

I love horses, had several when I was younger, and I loved to ride [including side saddle] and drive horse, do in hand showing, teaching etc etc. When I was a child everything was horses, horses, horses. I was an equine junky (until the hips gave up), and you just don't find the care and consideration to this oh so willing creatures in places like Thailand.

So, if you daughter really does love to ride horses, plan a trip when she gets home . . . think of the horses! Better an unhappy daughter than a ill treated horse!

Thank you!

I have never seen a horse on the island but agree with Mitch. Animals in general are not treated too well in Thailand.
