Amigo Horse Riding

Amigo Horse Riding is strategically located in Pasir Gudang, which is 30 minutes or 27 KM away from Johor Bahru. It’s a great weekend getaway for Singaporeans to spend some horsey time while staying in Tanjong Puteri Golf Resort which is right next to Amigo Horse Riding stables.

This is the signage you will see while driving in. You can search for the location accurate in Google Map.

Here we are at Amigo Horse Riding stable!

Amigo Horse Riding stables is owned and operated personally by Mos, an Iranian who has been in Malaysia for decades and running the stables for more than 10 years. Most importantly, Mos is a very skillful and experienced horseman.

My friends and I booked 2 rides with Mos. One in the Sunday evening and another on Monday morning. When we arrived, Mos has already parked our horses at the round pen while the groomer was tacking up the horses for us.

Kai Sing wanted to use her own endurance stirrup. Mos was helping her to set it up.

We had a few minutes of walking in the arena and Mos lead us out to the trail.

The horses were pretty calm and easy to work with. The trail was mainly flat land. We started off with walking, some trotting and a little bit of slow cantering. We arrived to the river bank in about 30 minutes later.

We continued our trail…

There were very few rocky paths. I believe Mos purposely pick the softer ground which are good for the hoof.

Pretty scenic trail to ride on a Sunday evening.

You can definitely cool your eyes with so much of greenery along the trail.

Mos also took us into Tanjong Puteri Golf Resort for quick tour.

Jac was having so much fun on her horse back on our way heading back to stables.

Passing by the entrance the stables on our way back.

Mos is keeping a lovely parrot in his stable that can speak “I love you” in a really cute voice.

We spent some time hanging out in the stables and were chatting with Mos. He shared his experiences and many other funny stories running the stables . Mos is definitely one of the coolest guys you can hang out with in the stables. It was a a great time and time flied! Before we knew it, the sky turned dark and it was time for us to head for dinner.

We ended the day with a delicious crab meal in JB town.

On the next day we have a morning ride with Mos. He led us out through another exit which is next to Tanjong Puteri Golf Resort.

Tanjong Puteri Golf Resort is on the left and stable is on the right. We were following Mos to walk till end end of the street to enter the trail.

We entered the trail…

Turned back for photo in the terrain.

We head to the river bank that we visited yesterday.

We head back to the stable in slightly less than an hour as the sun is getting really warm.

When we came back, Mos was kind enough to let us play with his painted horse in the round pen.

If you wish to ride in Amigo Horse Riding, please contact your friendly horseman, Mos at +60 12-796 6806 or at his Facebook and he will be glad to assist you.

Riding fees varies depend on whether it’s on a weekend or weekday or if Mos is running a promotion. We paid RM165 per pax for 1.5 hour ride on Sunday and RM94 for 1 hour ride on Monday.

Have fun riding in Amigo Horse Riding!

Bidaisari Stables is located in Janda Baik, Bentong, Pahang. It is approximately 1 hour drive from Kuala Lumpur.

The stables is located next to Bidaisari Resort. They offer accommodation + riding activities packages. If you are coming from outstation and looking for a place to stay and ride, this will be the perfect choice. You can check out more of their packages in their Facebook page.

A big paddock is just right next to the stable. You can take riding lessons in the stable for RM100/lesson.

You can probably tell, the location of the stable is pretty scenic. It’s a chilling environment to have a relaxing ride.

Suki and I decided to go there for trail ride after watching the video posted in Horse Riding Malaysia group:

https://www.facebook.com/man.gee.180/videos/1964653783807032/

I got Bella for my ride, a beautiful grey horse with soft canter.

We warmed up the horses in the paddock before heading out.

Look at the big smile on Suki’s face!

We met a new friend, Adam during our visit. Adam is a passionate young rider who was training for his up coming endurance competition. He usually trains in DARC.

Adam was on Zephyr, an Arabian during our trail ride.

We head out to the trail after our short warming up. Raju, the groomer came along with us on his trail bike to guide us along the trail.

Without delaying, we head out to the trail!

Suki was passing a stream, where her horse, Pampa really wanted to lay down to play water. Suki was quick enough to get Pampa to keep moving else she would have become a wet rider.

Of course we did not forget to stop to take some evidences we have been in such an awesome trail!

The trail was hit by heavy rain the night before. Some bamboo collapsed and blocked our way in. Suki and I got down from our horses to clear the path in order to proceed, while Adam was holding our horses.

My muddy boot as a result of clearing the bamboo on muddy ground.

The scene near the peak of the trail. Magnificent view indeed!

We came back from the trail in approximately 2.5 hour. It was a long track with a lot of uphill and downhill. It is a good place for riders to connect with the horses.

The stable also comes with a club house which is tastefully designed in horse theme.

Suki was playing with the dog in stable after coming back from our ride.

We also got to meet Yasman, who operates the stable. We had a good chat on the horses in the stable and what we can do in the club house. A super friendly and passionate horseman. It has been a pleasure meeting Yasman!

The stable offers riding lesson and packages as following if you are interested coming over for some actions:

Here is the location:

Trail Ride @ Bukit Beruntung with ESAR (Empayar Sunnah Archery & Riding)

Empayar Sunnah Archery & Riding (ESAR) at Bukit Beruntung has always been my favourite track to ride. I especially like their challenging track and my chatty guide, Boy. Last Sunday I went there with Suki.

We got there about 8.30AM. Wasted no time, we mounted on to our horses. Suki got Love. Her name is Love because she has a love mark on her head. Love is a lovely Anglo-Arabian.

While I mounted on Joker who is a tall retired horse from police force. He is like the model among the horses.

We got ready at the back of the stable and ready to head off to the trail.

On our way heading to the trail. We were cantering on the grass.

We were walking slowly at the entrance. In front of me is a Abang who recently started riding. This is his first time going for an outride.

Here is where the track started to get exciting. We arrived to a little slope where we (I mean the horses) have to climb up. The horses will automatically canter up. All we had to do were to bend a little forward to lighten the seat.

Then the horses can trot freely at the open field.

We cantered deeper into the greener part of the trail.

Since this is the first time Abang going for outride, he got tired quickly. Suki and I overtook him to meet boy in front.

Boy was waiting for us in front of a junction.

We walked passed the tall grasses.  As always, Boy is happy to explain to us where does each trail will lead us to.

This is one of my favourite spot in this trail. It is a long straight path where I could canter without much worry about the path condition.

We took a turn and move into another farm path. This is also another favourite of mine – thanks the beautiful scenery. Tall coconut trees in front, variety of vegetables at both side and straight clear path ahead of us. This is also a path where some horses can get into galloping!

I was doing slow canter at this point. Suki overtook me with fast canter.

We make 2 loops in this path. On another loop, Boy was galloping with his horse, Faraz. It was as if he just bounce by. He overtook me and got out of sight in less than 5 seconds!

We ended the trail by dropping by the pond. The pond was not fill with deep water but it was good enough for Lizaz, Love, Joker and Faraz to get a drink… and have some fun playing water. The Faraz and Love got a little cozy on the water and decided to take a bath! They lied down on the water and got Suki and Boy wet. Too bad we didn’t get to take any of their embarrassing photos!

We head back to the stable after a satisfying ride.

Jumping Lesson 3

It was my 3rd jumping lesson with Aqil in AS Equestrian Center. It was a fun session together with Suki. Having a buddy certainly certainly gave us a bit of competitiveness in the game!

In the video @2.02, Suki’s horse, Nix got excited and started cantering. I got really worried for her. Luckily Suki is a solid rider and managed to calm Nix down in just a few seconds. I have a chat with her afterward to find out she released the reins a little too early hence the little drama.

At @2.14, I was attempting the second jump and Marco decided to move to the right to avoid the poll. It caught me by surprised and I felt off from Marco. The good news is, I manage to hold on to Marco’s neck and land on my foot, phew!

Horse Riding Leather Gloves from Decathlon

I have heard many good feedbacks from my riding buddies on Decathlon. Upon checking the website, Decathlon.my first I noticed the price of their products are almost half of what I normally find outside. Second, I noticed a lot of Facebook users are giving positive feedback on the great customer service. I browsed their online store Decathlon.my and saw a fairly good looking pair of horse riding leather gloves so I gave it a try.

I did not visit the shop in 8trium @ Bandar Sri Damansara because it is slightly far from where I stay. I purchased the gloves online by talking to Malini. I transferred the amount to their company bank account and sent her the transaction statement in Facebook.

Few days later I was notified the gloves was out of stock and they have to ship it from another country. It didn’t bother me too much as I still have my old reliable glove. But long story short, I got my gloves after a few weeks!

As the product page describe, it is 100% leather on the palm area.

At the back, it is  89% Polyester and 11% Elastane which allow the skin to breathe and stretch a little.

Obviously a good pair of horse riding glove will give you the extra padding between your ring finger and your little finger to hold the reign securely while riding.

Also, extra padding between thumb and index finger to hold the reign.

I tested it out on my yesterday ride in MAEPS. It was a really good pair of gloves!

Overall review

It is fairly comfortable to wear. I did not feel any heat for wearing for almost 2 hours as the material is pretty breathable. It gave me reasonably good grip on the reign as I never felt my reign slipping away. The elegant and futuristic design make you a really proud owner. For the price of RM89, it is definitely value for money!

Like a lot of customers have mentioned, Decathlon customer service is top notch. Malini has definitely gone the extra miles to help me to secure my gloves. Good job Malini!
