Horse Riding is an unusual, but increasingly popular pastime for visitors to Siem Reap.
It’s an ideal way to get off the beaten track and see some of the lesser known attractions around town.
Set on 10 hectares of beautiful Khmer countryside, around a miniature lake, the Happy Ranche Horse Farm accommodates 46 horses, stallions, mares and foals.
The facilities include a round pen, a 20 x 40m dressage arena, a horse preparation area, and 40 large clean stalls in the stables.
Happy Ranch Horse Farm
The Happy Ranch was set up by Mr.Sary Pann, a Cambodian who had been living in America for 30 years. When he retired from his job in America, Mr. Sary Pann came back to Cambodia and bought one Cambodian horse. Very soon, he fell in love with horses and bought a second one… And a third one…
Eventually, he decided he would build a ranch in Siem Reap, Angkor.
Countryside Trail Rides
The Happy Ranch Horse Farm offers countryside trail rides from one hour to half a day ( 4 hours).
The horses will take you on a journey to places that are otherwise unreachable, through local countryside villages, scenic rice fields and tourist-free temple ruins, all waiting to be explored.
An authentic taste of the real Khmer lifestyle viewed from horseback, and a welcome break from other tourists.
1h $19 00
2h $36 00
