This is a tough one to review. Both my wife and I are very experienced riders... (We used to have our own business training thoroughbred racehorses). To compare to our own horses (and culture of looking after horses) I'd give it 1 star.... But I don't think that's very fair. We took the 4 hour option. Our guide (Johnny) was... More

Dear Trainer, We are grateful for your patronage and your encouragement of others to come and enjoy a 5-star tour/ride with us: "...the best [in S.E. Asia] hands down." It probably should be noted that our horses are not thoroughbreds - as you are accustomed to riding, but Asian and Mongolian mixtures. This probably accounts for some of the items... More

Firstly, email communication was excellent, with tuk tuk driver pre-arranged (showed up on time and picked us up after). Horses appear extremely healthy and fit, stables are clean and animals obviously very well cared for. We did the 3hr ride, would recommend starting at 7am as we did (much cooler). Johny (our guide- excellent English speaking) is a five star... More

I've just come back from a two hour ride with my husband at Happy Ranch, feeling as the place is called 'Happy' :-) Our guide Johnny, was just perfect, safety conscious, informative about the local area and Cambodia and also very funny and pleasant to be with. The horses are extremely well cared for and in the most beautiful condition... More

I was initially quite worried about doing the horse riding as it involves animals and might be dangerous, however the ride went perfectly and my horse Silver was very calm and great for a first timer (aka beginner). Our guide Kon Kong was great, very genuine and friendly, he was happy to answer any questions we had about Cambodia and... More

We had a fantastic ride through farm hamlets and rice paddies. Excellent guide Mr Kong, horses well behaved. Ranch beautifully cared for, horses all in great condition and well fed. Safety was paramount. Book an early ride to escape the heat.

First, the prices quoted at our hotel were significantly lower than we were charged at the ranch. Second, the horses looked terrible. Third, the "trail" was a walk through the back streets and alleyways on the outskirts of Siem Reap which exposed the riders to burning trash, wild roaming dogs, the locals living in squalor, and some of the most...

There's a lot to unpack here. For starters, I'm sorry that your hotel misquoted you on our prices. We have published our prices on our website, as well as in our brochures (available in most hotels) as well as being here in the Trip Advisor FAQ section. As in most tourism locations around the world, there is massive misinformation, which... More

My guide was Johnny, very passionate about what he does, taking care of the horses! The horses are tame and followed him closely, it was my second time riding and it was a truly unique and wonderful experience! My horse Silver was a gentle and lovely rider! I would recommend 1-2 hour tour with them ! Booking ahead is required!... More

We are booked one hour riding tour. Johnny is our guide, he was great, and we can riding faster by ourself after we know how ride. Local people are friendly and say hi to us, they will stop after you riding cross the road. It's very comfortable for beginners. The horses all look well and take good care in the... More

My family all went on a one-hour trail ride. One of my children had never ridden before. The staff here were fantastic with them. They were really safety conscious and made sure the children felt comfortable. The horses are really well looked after and trained. Our leader was able to tell us lots about life in Cambodia and point out... More

Highly recommended if you like horse-riding. The guide takes you through the country side and the awesome experience just makes you forget how hot the weather may be!! They also treat their horses with respect, which is an important factor for our decision making process :)
