Slowly walking at the quiet beach in the morning.

Pantai Beringgis is surprisingly clean during my visit and I hope it will stay the same.

It feels really therapeutic to have a slow walk along the beach listening to the waves.

We mounted in the arena before heading out to the trail.

We’d really love to try the trail which is 20KM, which takes around 1.5 hour to complete. The bad news is the year end flood just went away, the track is not in great condition so we were only able to ride the mini trail within the facilities.

The view along the way looking over the arena and stables.

We did attempt to get into the trail. Unfortunately, we were only able to make a small loop before we decided to turn back after assessing the condition of the trail.

Nevertheless, the ride surrounding the grazing areas are still pretty enjoyable. It’s a very refreshing experience to have a relaxing ride.

There are total of 9 large grazing areas for the horses to roam around. What else can you ask for?

Of course, we also stopped by to take some photos with the magnificent view behind us.

We saw a happy horse playing with water in the grazing paddock.

More photos along the trail.

I really love the personal touch and sense of being part of the family in the club. They are so friendly and you almost feel like chatting with some long time friends. They are kind enough the share how they got started and what their vision for the equestrian club is.

Wait… did I mention Aunty cooked mee hoon goreng for us too? Also not to mention they keep asking us to help ourselves with the coffee available for us.
