Glenora Stables is located 28 KM away from Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
Glenora Stables is founded by Susan, who came to Sabah from the U.K. The stables were established 8 years ago to provide riding facilities in the Papar district.
Before arriving at the stables, you will see the following signage.
Upon arriving, you will see the family’s residence on the right and the arena on the left.
