There are other places to go horseback riding in Baguio, but we picked Kabadjo Handlers Association because it’s near by – a short drive from The Manor. We always try to go for the simplest option to reduce stress while traveling.
They have cute ponies that are perfect for kids.
We chose the half hour single ride for DiploBaby and told them to do the easy route so we could walk behind him. I personally didn’t want to weigh a ton on pony & TD was still in crutches so not allowed to ride.
This is such a core memory for DiploBaby. Until 2023 he still remembers the name of the horse he rode: JACKY.
Cute horse & cute tot… I’m just dying of cuteness here!
QUITE A HIKE
Guys if you plan to follow along your kid walking, please wear hiking or rubber shoes that support your feet & legs & that you won’t mind getting dirty. It’s a bit of a walk with lots of stones, tree roots, horse poop & pee that can trip/step on. I was really amazed that TD made it with his crutch but he was determined.
If I had known I wouldn’t have worn my pristine light-colored rubber shoes.
At the clearing, we took some pics with DiploBaby & Jacky. We were also laughing so hard coz Jacky peed and pooped. Consider this with the foot wear you use. There is a possibility on accidentaly stepping on them.
TIME TO GO BACK
I found the handler very nice and gentle. He was very good with DiploBaby who is a nervous kid to begin with. He was very reassuring and this made my toddler relax & have fun.
I don’t think they ask for tips here but if you feel so inclind, please do so. I feel a bit bad coz some of the horses look skinny, like Jacky.
