“Excellent all round horse experience.”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were great and no request was met with anything other than a willingness to facilitate it. The food was fab and they catered well for adults and children alike. The care and consideration shown to both horse and rider was a pleasure to experience and see. Great hands on experience for the children, they didn't want to
leave. Many thanks to all the Riders Lodge Team. Hope to see you again.

Thanks so much for your kind comments (especially after a recent terrible review we received from a person who did not stay at our resort) on your staf at Riders Lodge.

We pride ourselves on our staff, horses, riding instruction and our great food at Agnes Cafe.

Hope you can visit us again soon.

Best wishes,

PS: Please remember there are places passing off as us in other countries near Malaysia

Rooms were very poor and not kept well. Mold and mildew odor all the time; ants in the room. Breakfast was awful. Location was inconvenient. Room rates were too high. Expected at least an average place based on website info and photos .
Will never set foot there again!

Your review baffled us. May we confirm that your stay was at Riders Lodge, Sedenak, Kulai, Johor Malaysia. We only have one equestrian resort and it is in Malaysia but we are aware that there others passing on as us.

If your stay was with Riders Lodge Malaysia then we are shocked, we have been in operation since 1999 and have not received such a review. We are very sorry for your experience but may we remind you that we are in the middle of tropical jungle and palm oil estate and we are the victim of building maintenance as a result of natural causes such as humidity, the combination of aircon & tropical heavy moisture. We work on it every day 24/7 and we take pride in our staff who tries their best to keep the resort.

With regards to breakfast, we are not sure what went wrong, we serve homemade (made from scratch) buttermilk pancakes, waffles, whole meal toast, Australian butter, German strawberry jam, fresh eggs cooked to your liking and fruits in season with freshly brewed Lavazza or English or herbal tea.

We also appreciate if our guest let us know of any problem during their stay so we can rectify it immediately.

The management and staff of Riders Lodge Malaysia are so sorry for your experience.

Right now we are at a loss and very shocked and sad.

Best wishes,

You like horses? Do you like to be outside and relax? This is the place. Riders lodge is a throw back to colonial times with a gracious old home, charming host, good food and service and riding. What more do you want

This is a long overdue review but still want to share the good experience.
Bf and I didn't stay at the lodge but attended the two days riding session,
Our instructor was really patient in guiding us and his love for the horses is contagious. The owner of the lodge always give us a big smile during session breaks. V welcoming,
The ride into the nearby forest on day two and the chance to groom a horse were especially memorable for me.

Thumbs up!

We totally enjoyed our time here.
This is a perfect alternative for people looking for a short getaway.
Horse riding is totally new for us and they made it easy for us to pick up the basics.
You will be surprised by the quality of food here. The chef put in so much heart in them.

This place has a jacuzzi for you to get wet.

Will definitely return!

For the third year in a row, (our second) the International Girl Scouts from Kuala Lumpur spent 24 hours at Riders Lodge. The staff put a 'horsey' package together for the girls and kept them busy the whole time. If they weren't riding, tacking up or grooming the horses, they were baking cookies, decorating golden horseshoes or just enjoying running around the massive estate. The adults could avail of a massage, relax with a coffee or a drink on the verandah or cool off in the rather small but cute, pool. At first, the price seems expensive but then you must remember that activities with horses are not cheap and all meals are included. The food is good and the staff are charming. A big thank you to Sennett, Agnes, Fred and Siti among others who cared for us so well. We'll be back same time next year!

Dear Orla,

Thanks for taking the time to write about your visit this year to Riders Lodge. It was great to see you again and to meet the group of girls. the girls did have full days and evenings and did so well in their horse riding training sessions. Ha They really earned their graduation certificates.

We look forward to your next visit.

My daughters and I had a great experience! The setting was lovely, the girls had a wonderful experience with the horses, and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. It was very expensive, though--especially for me (since all I did was watch my girls and eat). My girls rated it 10/10, though!

We hope that besides enjoying our great food you took time for a massage, a swim, a morning walk, and even read a good book.

We are so glad your children enjoyed so much and next time we hope to get you also on a horse.

Look forward to seeing all of your again. .
