A hoofprint for my heart

This is Dell. Isn’t she beautiful?


A dream came true last week. I (finally) went horseback riding. Thanks to a Groupon offer by Singapore Turf Club Riding Centre, I fulfilled my childhood dream. It was 20 minutes of pure bliss.

When the introductory lesson ended, I felt a little sad to part with this beauty. She was a feisty and spirited one, I tell you; I could tell just by riding her.

    I want to go horseback riding too! Looks so fun! Any ponies for kids to ride?

      You wanna join me? We can form a class if there are three of us. 🙂 They should have token pony rides but it’s more of a riding school actually. There’s a height and weight restriction for lessons though. Kid must be more than 30kg, if I’m not wrong.

    Mother of three and starting something new, and not something everybody can or dare to do, definitely an inspiration to many! All the best to your new adventure

    Didn’t it hurt? My first (and probably last) time horse-riding was in France and my butt hurt like mad throughout the ride! Glad you enjoyed it though. Good that you did something for yourself! 🙂

      No, it didn’t hurt; it was really fun to have the horse trot! Absolutely fun!

    I rode a horse a decade ago while holidaying in Desaru but its those where the handler will walk the horse. I sat on the horse and got so excited that I think the horse was unhappy coz it refused to move, the handler could not make it move a step! Then poo, alot of poo! And after finishing its biz it still refuse to move, so I have to get down from its back. 5mins of sitting on the horse, happiness!
