Giddy Up, Giddy Up!

Ya! Giddy up, giddy up!

Horse back riding is one of our 4 missions listed in our Nuvali and Tagaytay family trip last weekend. Since this escapade is dedicated to my three nieces, we gave in to their princess fantasy for a day--to ride a "real life" horse and not the round and around carousel in Mall of Asia (MOA).

A solo horse is about Php 250 1 rider only for 30 minutes. While a Kalesa or a horse with a carriage is about Php 350 for 30 minutes as well but it can accommodate maybe 2 adults or in our case, 1 adult (my mom) plus 3 toddlers :) You can also ride a carabao carriage for the same price and time (Php 350/ 30 mins). It can accommodate more people around 4 adults all at the same time...but of course, don't expect the carabao to giddy up haha!
Horse back riding is a bit over priced for me considering that the duration is too fast and not much scenery can be seen from the riding location. Well, unlike in Baguio, you can go up and down the hill or road for hours and choose from the wide array of horse color, costume, shape and sizes haha :) I chose the white one with pink hair and a cow boy hat when I was little, I remember.

Location wise, it's pretty average. No place to sit and relax, no store to buy food and drinks, and all you've got is a vacant parking lot with a horse oval and some feces on the ground to surprise you haha.
We did buy some Chicharon or deep fried pork rinds paired with spicy vinegar for Php 40 each to keep us busy while waiting for our princesses :)

You can also buy some Tawilis, a small fish that can only be found in Tagaytay or some sweet delicacies offered by the vendors within the area.

It was a breezy day at the horse park in Tagaytay and by looking at my nieces' smiles after their horse back riding experience, we adults can say "mission accomplished". It's our turn now to go shopping at the outlet store in Paseo Greenfield City.
