Horseback Riding in Bali

A Mini Guide to Bali Horse-Riding

Horseback riding in Bali is a fun and exciting way to enjoy the island’s outback – from paddy trails to quiet stretches of sandy coastlines. There are notable stables near secluded beaches where horse-riding is most popular, including the black sand coasts of Berawa in Canggu. Further up north towards Pererenan Beach and Tanah Lot, you’ll find a unique combination of rice fields and coastal views.

Popular horseback trails line the island’s east, central and northern areas, where beginners are welcome to join scenic tours lasting up to 2 hours. You can ride local breeds of Bali pony or Sumba sandalwood crossbreeds and enjoy a sunset beach ride, which can be a highlight of your trip. Retreats up north offer horse-riding activities through mangroves and unspoiled wilderness. Here’s where to experience horseback riding in Bali for your next equestrian joyride.

Bali Horse Riding

Bali Horse Riding has more than 20 horses, many of which are bred at their stables. A tour typically starts with a comprehensive safety briefing from professional guides, followed with a tour of Saba Bay on Bali’s east coast. Trot through the grassy countryside toward the volcanic sand coast and splash through the waves, with the outlines of Nusa Penida Island and Mount Agung in the background.
