Most travellers to Siam Reap are there to visit the Angkor Wat national park but may not see much of the real countryside and villages nearby. Siam Reap is nice but is largely a tourist town. A gentle one or two hour horse ride is a good way to feel at one with the local area. The staff (and horses!) are very friendly and helpful. I went on a 2 hour ride through paddy fields to a ruin of a small temple with a guide and three other customers and a volounteer (training to be a guide). Mostly walking and trotting with a bit of a canter at the end. I was told about the ranch by a friend and am very glad that I used half of one of my only two days in Siam Reap for the ride. I arrived into town at mid day and a couple of hours later I was riding through little villages. Very enjoyable and interesting. The horses are not large so not challenging to ride but also not strong enough for people over 90KG (I am 83KG).
