Horseback riding in Bali west coast
Most of the black sand beaches along Bali's western coast, including Petitenget Beach, Canggu, Pererenan, Umalas and Tanah Lot, are popular for horseback riding tours. Most stables have a wide range of horses, such as local ponies and thoroughbreds, as well as imported Arabians, Lipizzaner and French stallions. Bali’s west coast is obviously the best place for sunset jaunts.
