3S Equestrian Centre Cyberjaya Horse Riding

3S Equestrian Centre is strategically located right next to Taman Tasik Cyberjaya. It is a favorite leisure riding place for many kids and adults who like to try riding a horse for the first time.

3S Equestrian Centre

There is a paddock for general riding purpose. You can take riding lessons or a joyride in the paddock.

The stables are fully occupied with a good mixture of different horses, pony and even a baby horse!

This baby horse is only about 6 month old and he is still staying with his mother.

Khalifa – a horse previously used for jumping and currently staying in the stable. He is a tall horse and is very suitable for taller adult riders.

Queen – a very calm mare, currently own by a private owner. Queen is perfect for a relaxing leisure outride. She is busy munching her breakfast!

There is also a pony who can be really loud when he neighs.

There is a small hang out area right next to the paddock. Riders can sit there to hang out while seeing other riders ride.

Hang out area

Sometimes I go there for an easy practice ride in the paddock with my favorite horse, Albait. But usually, I will go for a trail ride.

On the way out to the trail.

Bidaisari Stables – Post MCO Training

It’s the first week after cross-state travel is allowed since MCO, Jac and I went to Bidaisari Stables in Janda Baik for an outride on Sunday. Here is our awesome hacking group photo.

Warming up in paddock.

We went to the kampung trail today. It was not a very long trail since the horses are just getting started again after a long break. It was approximately 8km and we completed that in about an hour.

While coming back, we took some time to pose for photos.

Upon coming back to the stable, I dismounted first while the other riders continue riding in the paddock.

Solea looking a little tired after coming back from kampung trail. It’s the first time I ride with Solea. She was naughty in the paddock trying to canter around on her free will for a short while. She has been a really good girl out in the trail by following the horses in front. Her trotting is easy and cantering is smooth. I think she can be a good horse for taking to endurance.

After we came back, we saw Natasya was practicing her walking and trotting on Bella.

Natasya has been absent from riding for some time. She was trying to get back her rhythm on the horse. Jac was busy body kind enough to help her out by leading the horse in front.

Coach Yasman was giving some extra pointers to Natasya after a few more rounds of riding in the big paddock.

I didn’t get to play with Bomber today but she has always been such as a darling for the us in Bidaisari Stable. Go try riding with Bomber, it’s so fun!

Here is a couple a video of us training the rested horses a week before inside the paddock.

Here is an outride video we did back in November 2019 where we took an endurance trail for almost 20KM. It was a really fun trip, be sure to check out the video!

Here is the address: Jalan Cherengin 1 28750 Kampung Janda Baik, Pahang, Malaysia. You can also check out the Google Map.

For more information, please contact Yasman at (+60 11-3229 3111) or visit Bidaisari Stable Facebook page.

Until next time!

Seremban Equestrian Center

Seremban Equestrian Center is located approximately 70km away from Kuala Lumpur.

It is not an overly popular spot for horse riding. I’m guessing it is mainly due to the stable being slightly remote compare other stables in the southern region.

It took me 45 minutes to get there from Kajang. If you are coming from KL, it will probably take you 1 hour and above.

I have been there twice. The 1st time was with Jaclyn. The 2nd time was with Suki, as her final farewell ride before heading back to Netherlands.

During our first ride, the guide took Jaclyn and I to a big open spot as you can see from the above video. The area is probably reserved for future construction. It was like a super big fence-less arena. We had our horses there to canter freely. Yeeeeeeeeeehar!

It was fun to be able to canter freely in the open area but it is something that you only want to do it once in a while.

Few weeks later, Suki and I went to Seremban Equestrian Center again.

I always like to ride horses in the track instead of the arena, regardless how big the arena is.

This time I have specifically asked the guide not to take me to the big fence-less arena again.

As a result, Suki and I went to the track. The track is not very long. But we did enjoy the greens along the track.

The unfortunate time was during our ride it started raining and it was a really wet ride.

We didn’t have a guide taking us into the track. We had to remember the instruction given by the guide prior to entering the track.

Well, at some point we got lost. The next thing we did was let our reins loose and let the horses take us back.

More Information on Seremban Equestrian Center

The outride fee was RM100 per session. If you are interested to pay a visit, feel free to contact Along at +6017-3120814.

Have fun!

Terengganu International Endurance Park, T.I.E.P. (Day 3)

3rd day of our 3-day horse riding trip across Peninsular Malaysia! We selected Terengganu International Endurance Park (T.I.E.P.) as our final destination.

Terengganu International Endurance Park (T.I.E.P.) is my most looking-forward-to track to ride since my endurance competition last year.

Our accomodation is fairly near to T.I.E.P. It took us about 15 min drive to get there. (Look at Suki’s sleepy eyes!)

Good morning horsies!

The girls abandoned me in the car while I was parking. They ran over to welcome the horses instead!

Jaclyn got Princess, I got Jacq and Suki got Langkasari.

Wasted no time, we started off our ride in T.I.E.P. – one of the top 10 endurance tracks in the world!

The initial track that we planned for was 14KM.

Upon completing the 14KM, we didn’t get enough of umh! and requested our guide, Anuar to bring us to another round of 10KM.

In total, we completed 24KM in the track as you can see in the following video.

Upon coming back, horses rest and drink before heading back to the stables.

This is an emotional moment for me.

I took Jacq for my 40km last year. I spent fair amount of time training with him back in Batu Arang last year (average of 3-4 times in a week).

Jacq was sold to another private stable in Terengganu, which means I can’t see him and ride with him as frequent as I used to.

Because of the endurance training, my riding style has changed so much to fit to Jacq. When I was riding Jacq, we feels in-sync with each others’ movement.

Jacq has got a lot more thinner than he used to be. Frankly, I have such an unspokeable heartache to see him again.

As much as I felt reluctant to leave Jacq, but it’s time to move on after petting and feeding Jacq.

I carried a heavy heart to come back to Kuala Lumpur on Friday.

It was as if I farewell to a long time friend.

It was really good seeing you again, Jacq.

Bidaisari Stables, Janda Baik (Day 1)

First day of our 3-day horse riding trip across Peninsular Malaysia!

We decided to have Bidaisari Stables in Janda Baik, Bentong (Pahang) as our first stop. It is a track that Jaclyn wanted to go since last year but never had a chance.

Suki and I rode in Bidaisari Stable once in September last year.  It was a reasonably relaxing ride so we were really looking forward coming back again after 6 months.

Jackly got on Pampa, the first endurance horse she ever had; Suki got on Zaafa, an anglo Arab that has pleasantly light and smooth canter; while I got on Bella, an easy-going grey horse and she is really good looking.

Our guide, Raju came along with us on his horse and guided us to finish through the big loop in the trail.

We crossed 2 small streams and spent fair amount of time allowing the horse to rest and eat, while the riders took the time to take lots of photos!

We covered 12KM and it took us slightly more than 2 hours to complete the trail.

Next stop, we are heading over to Kuatan for Pusat Equestrian Pahang!

Falling Down in UPM Track

Felt down from horse in the trail!

I got a jumping horse, (named Russian) which is not used to going out the trail. Before going out, I flatwork Russian for about 10 minutes in the arena and Russian was a really steady boy while walking and trotting.

When we hit the trail, I gave Russian the clue to go canter. He started off with slow canter and within very short time he transition into fast canter and I couldn’t slow him down.

Russian kept fast cantering for the next couple of minutes and eventually transition into galloping while going down hill. Yeeeeehar! (Well, it was actually steadier than I thought it will be)

The only problem was, I couldn’t slow him down and I felt fairly uncomfortable riding a horse that I couldn’t control.

Eventually at a very sharp turn, Russian was fast cantering into left while my body momentum was still going forward. I felt down on my right side and knock my head. I could tell I almost lost my conscious as the world was spinning when I hit the ground. I laid on the mud for a couple of minutes before Din came to my rescue.

Din and I exchanged horses. I got back on to horse back and ride back to the arena. At this point I could feel I lost a bit of my balance because my hand and leg coordination was out of sync.

Back into arena, I flatwork Russian again for another 45 minutes. The objective for doing this is to make sure I find back my balance and confidence on horse back before calling it a day.

It’s been a while since my last fall from a horse. The good thing about falling down is we always get to stand back up on our own and remember to stay humble no matter how much one has been riding.

Benua Equestrian Stables

Benua Equestrian Stables is a private stable located in UPM. There are 2 stables in UPM, one runs by the university and the other (Benua) is privately owned.

I get the meet the owner during last year endurance competition and I have been putting off to visit his stable.

UPM is located next to MAEPS but the riding track is not identical. MAEPS offers into-the-forest track while UPM has well-maintained farm track.

The track in UPM has plenty of clear path for cantering.

In the track, if you do slow canter on open area and trot and walk on down slope, you will complete the track in approximately 45 minutes.

Taking break half way into the ride with my horse, Mufasa, a really light endurance horse.

Mufasa is back from our ride and cooling down. I could see her body was steaming a little the moment the groom removed the saddle.

The groom, Eddie was showering Mufasa after my ride.

A couple of other horses outside their stables.

There is also a much bigger arena above while is within UPM stables. Both UPM and Benua Equestrian Stables are using the big arena during my visit.

Sunset Ranch Los Angeles

Sunset Ranch is located 8 miles away from Los Angeles.

Upon arrival, the registration booth at your right side. You see this wooden house on your left.

Horses roaming around the ranch. Ready for riders to go out to the track.

Horse is ready! This is the area riders mount on the horses.

The mini version of the Hollywood sign in the ranch.

Few more horses around the ranch ready for riders.

Our guide, a local teenage girl who has been riding in the track since young age is preparing her horse to take us out to the track.

Ready to go!

Some briefing before hitting the track.

Hey guys, come over faster!

Everyone is looking good!

Continue to walk on the track.

The sun was hot, but the wind is really cold during winter.

Looking back at the track.

The trail is a popular spot for hikers to take a walk on the weekend. While we were riding, there are many also hikers along the track.

Alright, everything still looks good.

Walking along the long track.

The mountain there is not super green during winter because lack of rain. I bet the place look much greener during summer when it gets wetter.

On the top left side of the photo, that’s the viewing area for hikers who come all the way up to have a good view of Los Angeles.

The tall buildings in the center of the photo is the downtown area in Los Angeles.

We stopped at the peak to rest and of course to take some photos.

On our way back. Since I was leading front while going up, I stayed back on the way going back.

In the front there are our local guide, a couple from Chihuahua, Mexico and another rider from Florida.

Taking a turn while walking back.

We met some other riders going up the trail while we were coming down. This track is very friendly for first time rider too!

Passing by the famous Hollywood Sign!

Right before entering the ranch from our track.

Of course, at the end of the ride, please remember to tip your guide according 😉

Following is the location to the ranch. Click here for their website to find out more. You can make a booking and make the payment right from their website.
