Where to learn horse riding in Singapore

Most fairytales end with the prince heading into the glorious sunset with a damsel on horseback. But as we're strong proponents of safety, we'd recommend signing up for horse riding classes before you even attempt to gallop anywhere. Horse riding is a fulfilling sport that is highly therapeutic at the same time – but you don't have to save it for vacation days. In the past, you'd have to pay hefty membership fees in order to take up classes. But it has become more accessible now, with more stables offering non-membership-based horse riding classes. Whether you're an advanced rider or a beginner, take your horseriding skills to the next level at various riding schools in Singapore.  RECOMMENDED: The best DJ classes in Singapore and the best language schools in Singapore
