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

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:

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:

Until next time!
