As part of your Cambodia vacation package, why not try something different. We are able to organise countryside trail rides from 1 to 3 hours. From sunrise to sunset, take the horses out to explore places that are otherwise unreachable. Ride through local countryside and villages, scenic rice fields and tourist-free temple ruins. An authentic taste of real Khmer lifestyle viewed from horseback. On top of trail rides we are can arrange lessons for the less experienced and cart rides for those who would like to try something a little different.
Horse riding teaches discipline and self confidence. So to help you get more out of your riding experience, we can arrange lessons with a skilled European instructor. Children over 8 years of age, depending on their maturity, will learn about safe behaviour around the horses, horse behaviour, grooming and riding. This will enrich their Cambodia vacation experience.
