Yeah! I am back with my Taiwan travelogue post. I am going to share my first ever horse riding experience on Tamsui Beach, Taipei. Instead of the usual tourist attractions and things to do when you are in Taiwan, I spend half a day with a fun-filled activity at Lu Ye Esquestrian Culture and Creative Park.
So, we got the activity secured via KKday website before we reached Taiwan. It is always good to plan your itinerary ahead before you start travelling so that you can fully utilize your time there. Or perhaps list down the things you want to do when you are travelling. This helps to make your holiday worthwhile.
Back to the topic ya. We took the train to Tamsui (淡水) MRT station and exit 2 as per stated on the confirmation letter. There will be a confirmation email with the stated Terms & Conditions once you made your booking. The pick-up point is at Exit 2 where the complimentary shuttle takes us to the exact location. The journey is approximately 10-15 minutes ride before reaching the destination.
What to expect from the package?
We had a guided tour around the stables and learning about the fun facts about the horse’s life. We also got the chance to interact with the horses.
So, we had a mini lesson beforehand on ways to approach the horse before we start out ride out to the beach. Check out the snippets here.
Finally its time for horse saddling and I am so excited. We had some warm-up exercises in the indoor arena before we slowly made our way out to the beach. The professional trainer was assigned to us to ensure our safety along the way. And under the guidance of the trainer, we had a good ride on the Tamsui beach to witness the beautiful evening.
It was a wonderful ride experience and I think I made the right choice to do it in Taiwan. If you are interested to experience it, check out KKday Horse Riding Experience.
During our ride to the beach, we saw wedding shots going on with the horse too. It’s like fairy tales shots. So romantic! This is one of the memorable experience I had for this Taiwan trip.
