For sure you have seen those idyllic pictures of riding horses on the beach during sunset. It not only Instagram possible, but it is a reality here on the island of Bali.
It is a romantic and exciting way to enjoy the island. You can see quiet stretches of sandy coastlines and green rice fields from the saddle of a horse. There are stables near secluded beaches where horse-riding is most popular, such as the black sand coasts of Berawa in Canggu, and further up north towards Pererenan Beach and Tanah Lot, where you can find the unique combination of rice fields and coastal views. However, there are also increasingly popular horseback trails in the island’s east, central and northern areas, where beginners are welcome, be it children or adults, with tours lasting up to two hours. You can ride local breeds of Bali pony, or Sumba sandalwood crossbreeds, and even go for a sunset beach ride which can be a highlight of your honeymoon. Retreats up north also offer horse-riding activities through mangroves and unspoiled Bali wilderness. So let’s see where you can go horseback riding in Bali:
