Now there’s nothing like a bit of ‘horsing’ around to get your weekend off to a good start!Where we used to live, we were fairly regular visitors to an equestrian centre with both children really enjoying riding lessons. We had a spare morning to fill today so figured we’d head down to Titiwangsa Park and see just what their horse centre has to offer.
The Rekreasi Berkuda is based in the grounds of the park and is a beautifully kept little area. Now they don’t offer riding lessons, but for anyone with small tots looking to introduce them to horses, or indeed for them to experience their first pony ride, this is the place to go! They have stables and a couple of paddocks and offer pony rides for just 1RM!!! (Yes, you read that correctly, it’s only about 20 cents!) Now this isn’t an hour tour, but it is a great little experience for beginners.
If you continue into the centre you then come across their horse drawn carriages which can take the whole family on a canter around the circuit!
Again, it’s ridiculously priced at 1RM per adult (and just half that for children!) and was really enjoyable and lasted a fair bit longer than the pony rides.
Not only were the gardens really well maintained, the staff were all friendly and, most importantly, the horses were healthy and clearly well cared for. These encounters with the horses are not available all the time, but, on weekends and all public holidays, you can pop along between 9am and 11am or from 4pm-6pm and just buy your tickets at the counter.
Needless to say, while at Titiwangsa, make the most of this amazing park! My goodness, the atmosphere there this morning was just magic and I could easily spend every Saturday morning there.
Such a family-orientated park means that you can really enjoy the moment; from the remote control racing car track to boats for hire on the lake, to cycling on their genius man-made road network that brings make-believe play to a whole new level.
A simple way to pass a lazy Saturday, but so perfect. S x
