“kids and horses”

Reviewed July 23, 2013

If your kid loves horses, head to Wright’s Park. For a standard fee (200PHP for half hour, 300PHP for an hour), you can ride a horse around the park. There is no haggling for better prices (a large sign indicates prices) and there was no choice for horses but they do make sure that you are matched with a horse of the right size and temperament. Another horse handler will ride with your kid unless your child is already a trained horse-person.

We were approached as soon as we got off the cab and it looked like they were all taking turns approaching tourists as they came to the horse-riding/rental area. So if your heart is set on that my little pony look-alike, you might have to be assertive and ask for it.

The reasons I can’t give this a five star rating include the following:
-There is no designated place to relax while waiting for your kid but there is a small shack where you can buy drinks (but you'll have to ask! since there is no signage and it looks very informal/temporary set-up)
-Muddy areas meant horse-riding was limited to a small space if you choose the half-hour ride

This is not the place for a horse-riding snob to hang out but it’s a wonderful place for little kids (and adults) who’ve always wanted to indulge in the occasional horse-riding experience.

They cater for all riding levels and unlike a lot of tourist horse riding the horses still have a bit of mouth for those who can ride, tour guides will lead you around for beginners. They also appear to look after the animals a bit better than other places in Asia, they don't look too sick or skinny. But it can be quite hot so if you are expecting a trot around the park choose the timing of your visit wisely.

Lot's of horses and nice weather. I think that's P100/hr for the horse back ride. There is a trail where you will be guided by the personnel in the area.

Had a big black horse named El Diablo. He was high-spirited and a beautiful horse. Reasonable prices too

the horses seemed healthy and well-cared for enough. the rates were kind of steep but still reasonable. there is lack of seats though for parents like us who were there to watch our kids enjoy their rides. This is something that the management should take care of. After all, the rides are on an hourly basis and we could not be expected to remain standing the whole time.
