Last weekend we went to Bintaro Sektor 9 which is a half hour trip from Jakarta. The reason why we came there is because we heard of a place for horse riding in the city. It’s not common to ride on in the city, usually you’ll have to go to Puncak or Bandung or Bogor.
So off we go for a morning trip and went to Giant parking lot in Bintaro. At first I was a bit hesitant and worried that there might not be any horse to ride *that will surely dissapoint Rama*. But once we enter the parking lot, I was in a relief. There were plenty of horse to pick. From the small one to the big one. Black, brown, white, blonde, you name it.
Since it’s Rama’s first time on horse riding, we decided to pick the little horse for him. His name is Bilal, a 3 years old horse that likes to eat grass and tofu *hmmmm*
The cost for one lap ride is Rp10.000 (less than a dollar), cheap eh? And they are open from 7am to 5pm every day. But the track is also very short. So one ride doesn’t satisfy the child curiosity and it doesn’t match the effort on getting there on the first place. We then asked the jockey to give us for another lap. My advice, if you’re thinking of trying for a ride with your child, then maybe you could negotiate with the horse jockey and ask for an hour or half an hour package. Then you’ll get a good bargain and satisfying horse ride.
