Horse Riding as a Hobby
Horses are a rare sight here in Kuala Lumpur. I mean we do not see them in main thoroughfares like in Canada, for instance. We do not have farms here that require horses.
The only places we are able to see a horse or two are in the zoo or at a horse riding school, the latter, most of us would not ever think about visiting unless one is into horse riding.
Besides obtaining membership to an equestrian club, horse riding involves the right apparel and equipment such as riding boots, riding breeches, riding helmets, show clothes, horse blankets, saddles and much more. I hear English saddles are much sought after.
In temperate climes, autumn heralds the dawn of the best riding time of the year. The days are cooler, the flies are fewer and breathtaking fall colors add up to great riding experiences. If trail riding is your main interest, the trails will be more beautiful than ever.
