Looking for equestrian pursuits around Singapore for kids? Wondering where you can get pony rides or view horses with the kids in Singapore? We saddled up and went around to lasso some “mane” attractions around Singapore to keep the kids horsing around.
1. Gallop Stables
Children can enjoy everything from casual pony rides to formal riding lessons at Gallop Stables. From one location at Pasir Ris Park in 2003, Gallop Stables has since expanded to three. Their latest location at Punggol Park which even has cowboy-themed accommodation for those who wish to indulge in a spot of camping out by the prairie.
2. Bukit Timah Saddle Club
In addition to riding lessons and pony camps for children, the Bukit Timah Saddle Club runs pony rides for children every Sunday between 10.30 am to 1.00 pm. Pair this up with a lazy brunch at the adjacent Riders Café and you have the makings of a perfect Sunday.

3. Singapore Zoo: Pony and Horse Carriage Rides
Head over to Kidzworld at the Singapore Zoo to let your child saddle up on a pony for a ride. Younger children who can’t ride a pony alone can still hop in a horse-drawn carriage and take a slow ride around Kidzworld.
