Horseback riding on the beach
Horseback riding is certainly not one of the top activities in Krabi but one we think is worth mentioning. The horses are kept on Ao Nam Mao beach in a range of carrels. Taken to the beach daily whether or not there are customers the horses are able stretch their legs.
Horseback riding on Ao Nam Mao beach is a great half day trip for groups and families of all ages. The day will start with taking a few minutes to prepare the horses. Have a brief orientation from the head house trainer and then you will get the chance to ride on the sands of Ao Man Mao Beach. Depending on your level and riding proficiency you can take your horse at a trot, canter or full-on gallop just talk with the trainer first.
We highly recommend booking this trip in the afternoon as it’s slightly cooler and you will get to enjoy watching the sun setting off in the distance. While you are exploring the mangroves around Ao Nam Mao beach as well as the soft sands of the beach itself there is a good chance you will catch an amazing sunset
Added bonus you will usually be able to take the horses swimming if you’d like, ask the trainer before though.
Horseback riding in Krabi is one of the lesser known activities in the area, but certainly one of the top things to do while on holiday. Riding for a whole day costs around 1,000thb/rider (varies with the season) but where else in the area can you enjoy that cliche hollywood scene in real life.
