BAGUIO: Shalan di Kabadjo, Camp John Hay: Best Place to go Horseback-riding

BAGUIO: Shalan di Kabadjo, Camp John Hay:
Best Place to go Horseback-riding

Shalan di Kabadjo is located at Camp John Hay, beside Le Monet hotel. Since we're staying at Le Monet Hotel, it's very convenient to just book a ride for the kids and then continue resting inside the hotel. It's very convenient for those staying at Le Monet Hotel to go horseback-riding at Shalan di Kabadjo.

But even if you're not staying at Le Monet Hotel, I still highly recommend this place for horseback-riding because of the following:


THE RATES ARE CHEAPER IF YOU WISH TO GO OUT OF THE RIDING CIRCLE. 

These are the rates of Shalan di KABADJO. 
If you want to go outside the riding circle,  this is cheaper than the rates at Wright Park shown below because at Wright Park,  you pay additional 300 pesos for the guide on top of the 300 pesos horse rate. 

These are the rates at Wright Park



THE RIDING CIRCLE AND BRIDLE PATH IS LESS CROWDED.





THE BRIDLE PATH IS A WOODED PATH WITH LOTS OF PINE TREES.






THERE ARE LOTS OF PARKING SPACES IN THE AREA.


THE ADULTS WHO WAIT FOR THEIR KIDS RIDE CAN EAT AT THE FILLING STATION BESIDE SHALAN DI KABADJO.

Le Monet Hotel is at the left.
Shalan di Kabadjo is at the right.

WHAT MY KIDS SAY ABOUT RIDING AT SHALAN DI KABADJO:

1. They love riding inside a wooded area full of pine trees and plants.

2. The path is so cool because it goes along the side of the mountain.

3. They were taught how to ride by the handlers, who were really nice to them.

4. They were allowed to gallop with the horses while the handlers carefully supervised them to keep them safe.
My tip: You should lock your knees and be in a somewhat standing position when you gallop to avoid having a painful butt after riding. That's a tip from one of the handlers, according to my daughter.


Overall, for adults, horseback-riding at Shalan di Kabadjo is stress-free compared to horseback-riding at Wright Park where you compete for horse and parking space, especially during the weekend.
