Horse Riding

Just thought that I should blog about my birthday before the year ends! Have been delaying it for quite awhile because I haven't got time to sort the photos! My birthday nicely fell on a public holiday this year so no work woohoo! Bf brought me to horse riding at Gallop Stables at Punggol!

He actually planned way in advance and I sort of guessed it was horse riding because he asked if I was over a certain weight (tsk!) and told me to wear casual clothes and covered shoes for the activity.

First, we had lunch at a nearby cafe Bacon and Booze. The food was mediocre and the service was poor. I later heard from another friend that she felt the same way too.

Chose to sit outside because it was quite dark inside and I need my sunlight!

Bf's choice of main.

My eggs were overcooked and not oozy at all. I felt like I was having salad with two hard boiled eggs!

Luckily we ordered chicken wings because it can never go wrong.

Ended the meal with yummy birthday tarts that bf ordered elsewhere and brought along!

Finished our meal and all ready to ride horses!!!! Bf bought a package for us to ride a horse for 30 minutes each. There are also pony joyrides at only $10 for kids and it lasts 2-3 minutes. Saw many kids there! Anyway, it was so coincidental that I happen to see not one, but THREE colleagues there! Just nice all of us went to the same place on the same day. Haha.

These wagons below are actually resorts!

Checking out the horses at the stables!

I kept referring to my horse as Horsie (Horse-C) and bf made a joke saying his horse is Horse-B. Lol. Anyway, I didn't expect that the horses will be so huge.. They are taller than me! Quite scary actually! I wouldn't want to offend a horse. Haha.

While waiting, we went to buy some carrots for pony feeding. We thought there would be several ponies for us to feed but actually only this one.

It just kept eating away. Haha.

Yay time to ride the horse! I did ask for the name of my horse but I forgot already. Lets just call it Horsie!

The staff first took me around an enclosed field for a few rounds and taught me some basic riding tricks.

Selfie on top of a horse! Selfie with a Selfie tee!

The staff asked if I want to ride the horse myself but I was afraid it would just gallop away so I insist that the staff hold on to the latch the entire time. Haha.

Then, we ventured out!

Passed by bf on his horse...

I want that pink car in the background!!!

It was a really fun and interesting experience! Photo with my horsie to end this entry! :)

After that we changed outfits for dinner at Forlino. Will blog about it in the next entry! :)
