HORSE RIDING

Horse riding is one of the unique features we offer at ULUHATI

We offer guided joyrides, casual rides, trail riding and riding lessons to our guests.

Guided joyrides
This is mainly for first time riders who want to experience being on a horse. This ride will take place in the paddock and will be hand held. The charge is RM70-00 per person per forty (40) minutes or part thereof,

Casual rides
These are for guest who have ridden before and are able to manage a horse on their own to a reasonable extent. The charge is RM70-00 per person per forty (40) minutes or part thereof. This ride will take place in the paddock.

Trail riding
This is only for experienced riders who are able to handle horses in the outdoors. Do bear in mind that our trail covers jungle trail with hills and valleys. Hence we will only allow riders who have at least 60 cumulative hours of riding over the last one year, which works out to about an hour a week of riding. The ride can last between an hour and a half to 2 hours. The charge is RM120-00 per rider session.

Riding lessons
We offer basic riding lessons from the walk to the canter. We do not teach show jumping, dressage or other specialized riding techniques. Our approach is holistic in that we expect the student after spending time with us to know more than just to sit on a horse and make it move. We try to educate our students off and on the saddle so that they understand the animal better. Our philosophy is simply that the more you know about the horse the greater the chance that the rider and horse become one. Thus students will be taught the care and maintenance of horses, common issues etc.

Our riding lessons comes in packages of eight (8) lessons of forty(40) minutes each. To be fair, it is very rare that a student will master the art of riding in 8 lessons. Hence for aspiring students our advise is to be patient, diligent, disciplined and above all, have the passion for riding. Even experienced riders will say that each ride bring new insight into the experience. Our riding lesson package is RM480 for 8 lessons.

What to bring - Riding attire
For beginners we do not encourage you to invest too much for a start. Just come in comfortable long sleeve shirts and pants. Do come in comfortable shoes. Basic sports shoes will do just fine. High heels, sandals, slippers or shoes with fancy buckles are to be avoided. In fact we will not allow you to ride unless you are properly shod. Do invest in a simple pair of gloves for a start. You will be surprised what the reins can do to your fingers. As we go along, and once the riding bug has bitten you than you can start charging up your credit cards.

Beyond that, enjoy yourselves.
