Time To Horse Around With These 5 Equestrian Riding Schools In Bangalore

Akshaya posted on 16 January

If you’re animal lover and a fitness junkie, what sport better combines the two than horse riding? While competing professionally is one way to go about it, we’re leaning more towards taking it slow — horse riding makes for the perfect leisure activity that’s also a great workout. Sure, it takes a lot of patience and practice, but the discipline you’ll learn from it is incomparable. Whether you’re looking to start horse riding yourself or want to enrol your child, it’s a sport that anyone of any age can learn!

Bangalore Amateur Riding Institute

Open to people of all ages looking to learn {kids have to be ten-years or older}, this is the perfect riding institute to hit up if you’re looking to learn non-competitively. It’s also a super budget-friendly way to try out riding if you’re a bit nervous about committing. An annual membership is INR 5,000, and classes are sold in sets of ten — INR 200 per class for kids and INR 400 per class for adults. And, we should mention, the location on Race Course Road is super convenient!

Timings: 6.30am-7.30am

Price: INR 7,000 for kids and INR 9,000 for adults
