No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle” and that certainly counts for horse riding in Yangshuo when one could do so surrounded by the amazing karst scenery of this area! Riding one of the local horses along the shores of the famous Li-river surrounded by karst mountains and bamboo groves will definitely count for one of the most highly memorable experiences of your Yangshuo holiday.
These rides are suitable for all levels and ages, so you could join even if you have never ridden a horse before and would like to try it out. However, if you are seasoned horse rider, do not expect the level of fitness of the horses you may have back home. These are Chinese horses of a smaller size and do not enjoy the same quality of diet as in the West.
Although these horses are very laid-back, do keep in mind that – as with any horse unfamiliar to its driver – it is very unwise and dangerous to walk right behind a horse or change sides along the back. They do not seem to like that and could make that very clear.
Prices are 120Y an hour and you could be picked up at your accommodation in Yangshuo or the Alley Bar and Restaurant in Yangshuo’s center.
|Getting There: Get across the Li-river at the other side of Yangshuo town or be picked up at your accommodation or the center.|
|Times/Duration: flexible to suit your needs.|
|Arrangements: Ask your local accommodation staff if they can arrange a horse trip for you or get in touch with us.|
