Pony riding in KL


I have always had a soft spot for horses, and there have been times in my life that I have been severely bitten by the horse bug. I have always though that horse riding is an excellent hobby that teaches kids compassion, responsibility and respect towards animals. There is just something magical about these creatures! So I was pleased when my youngest changed her approach to ponies from “panicked” to “very eager”.

The easiest place to try it out is at Mont Kiara Equestrian & Country Resort, where pony rides for kids are available every Sunday morning 9-10. 15 RM for a couple of laps around the school feels pretty steep, but the smile on their face is priceless, really!

A much more affordable option is the DBKL-operated stable at Titiwangsa park, open on weekends, public holidays and school holidays in the morning and again in the afternoon. Rides there are only 1 RM – 1,50 RM/lap, depending on the kids’ age. They also do carriage rides.

Read here where else to find bunnies to pet. Bird Park: Prepare for a hot outing! Butterfly Park: Smaller than the bird park and full of fluttering wings! Not very stroller friendly but small enough for even toddlers to walk. Pony riding: there are a few places to ride ponies in KL. […]
