What you'll do
Our guests will enjoy a unique experience with our amazing ponies and experienced staff. We will meet at a cafe in the Old Quarter for a traditional Vietnamese coffee (Nau or Egg Coffee), then we will head to our barn to get acquainted with the animals. Spend the morning or afternoon riding our well-trained ponies through traditional villages, rice fields, and along the Red River. Each rider will be matched perfectly with one of our trail ponies based on weight, height and level of experience. Lauren and an additional instructor will guide you along the trail. There are plenty of photo opportunities; water buffalo, cows, ducks, chickens, and other animal life are commonly spotted throughout the ride. After the 60-minute ride, you can brush your pony and give her a snack. Upon returning to the stables, we will head back to central Hanoi. Along the way, a traditional Vietnamese meal awaits you. Water is provided and beer is available for purchase. *French guide also available **Bookings with 4+ people will receive a $5 discount per person. ♞ Horse riding is an expensive sport. The price per person is the minimum price I can charge without losing money when only one person is on the tour. ♞ The cost of the tour covers: your coffee, water, meal, transportation, the ride for you and for me, and airbnb’s 20% fee. ♞ Please message me for ways we can reduce the cost of the tour

Xin chào quý khách! Welcome to Vietnam. I'm Lauren, a 29-y/o American expat living in Hanoi. I've been here for 1.5 years and have discovered many lesser-known sites, foods, and activities in the area. I've been riding horses for more than 15 years (jumping, hunter, saddleseat, western), and was thrilled to discover a place that both cares well for their ponies, and provides a unique, safe perspective of Hanoi outside of the Old Quarter. My passion for Vietnam and horses has led me to want to show people this beautiful country from the back of well-cared-for rescue ponies.
