Countryside Stables Penang is located in Balik Pulau, Penang (Pulau Pinang), approximately 30km from George Town.
You will be passing through some small roads and village area. For the distance of 30km, it will take you about 30-40 minutes coming from George Town in early morning.
Upon arrival, you will see the grand entrance.
There was no out ride activity in Countryside Stable Penang. I went there for an hour of riding in the big arena. The entrance fee for Malaysian adult is RM10 and RM15 for non-Malaysian adult.
The riding fee and lesson fee is the same. RM80 for 30 minutes or RM120 for 60 minutes. I opted for 60 minutes to ride in the arena.
Upon entering, you will see a tastefully decorated signage.
Countryside Stables Penang
The colorful decoration gives a Thai-ish sense of design.
There are many ponies being stationed at the front part of the stables. That definitely get the kids excited during their visit.
Of course, there are also bigger horses and a lot of them look totally stunning!
This is Frankie. The groom got Frankie for me for my ride in the arena.
Frankie used to be a jumping horse and he is now being used for schooling.
The groom got me to ride inside the ring for 15 minutes to assess my riding level before allowing me get into their big arena.
I walk for a couple of circles and spent the remaining time trotting inside while chatting with the staff, Ganesan who is a really friendly guy.
Posing with Frankie, after the warm up and before entering to arena.
Frankie has been an energetic boy in the big arena.
I didn’t need to use my whip. Gentle squeeze on the leg and a few kissing sound could get Frankie transition into trotting and cantering the the arena.
There is also an indoor arena. This is wonderful as even during rainy days students can continue their lessons.
An open area for visitors and students to chill out.
The staff was kind enough to turn on the fan for me while I went in to take a seat.
Some carriages on display.
