Trail Riding

An unforgettable experience…on the majestic Andalusian and Friesian horses. Our 1.5-hour trail ride passes through scenic corn and tapioca plantations and vegetable plots as well as some thick wooded areas. There will be plenty of opportunities to canter and therefore some riding experience is essential. After harvesting time competent riders will undoubtedly enjoy a full gallop up wide-open fields. Safety is of paramount importance to us and our staffs will accompany you throughout the trail. Through the ride we’ll make few stops where our ground staffs (following us on ATVs) will provide you with refreshments. This will also give the horses the much-needed rest. Be it slow and leisurely or fast and furious your ride can be tailor-made to suit you.

One of the major highlights of this trail is the rare opportunity for you to ride on majestic Andalusian and Friesian horses imported from Spain and the Netherlands respectively. Horse of Kings and nobility the Andalusians are extremely elegant. The Friesians too are graceful and unique in having just one coat colour, which is jet black. Put a pair of wings on one of these magnificent horses and you’ll be gliding on Pegasus. With long and abundant wavy manes both breeds are spectacular to look at. In ancient time they were extensively used as war horses carrying knights into battles. It is thus so fitting that most epic movies use these horses. Riding them will give you immense pleasure. With high knee action they will thunder across the field. You’ll look and feel like Russell Crowe in the film Robin Hood or Collin Farrell in Alexander the Great!!

When I said this is a rare opportunity I really mean it because there are only a handful of these wonderful and costly horses in Thailand. Most owners are so possessive. Frankly speaking nobody in their right mind would let you ride them… But I do!

* Helmets are provided on requests and bringing your own suitable riding gear (gloves and boots etc.) is highly recommended.
* Please book in advance for this ride.
* Minimum number of riders is two.

Riding Lessons

Horse riding for beginners should be fun and exciting. We offer riding classes for beginners. Lessons are an hour long. However it’s very important you come to the lesson in proper riding gear. Full-length jeans covering your ankles are essential. If they are the only shoes available then sneakers are permitted, though riding boots with heels are preferable. Helmets will be provided. After the first few introductory lessons, the real fun begins when you are taken on short, easy rides in the nearby woods. From then on, a whole new world of adventure will be opened up to you.

Pony Rides

Pony rides into the nearby woods are always very popular among children visiting our farm. The ride lasts 30 minutes and each pony is led by one of our competent and friendly staffs. Parents are welcomed to walk along with their children but please keep a safe distance as loud noises and sudden movements can sometimes frighten the ponies.

Collecting Free-Range Eggs

This is an all time favourite activity among children. We have 400 free-range laying hens. Each day approximately 250 eggs are laid. It’s always a challenge to snatch eggs from underneath roosting hens. Do you know that free-range eggs not only taste better but they are a lot more nutritious than factory/caged eggs?

Hayride

We can take you on a 1-1.5 hour hayride into the surrounding orchards and plantations. Depending on time of the year you and your family will see various kinds of fruits and vegetables besides just having fun on the tractor.

Feeding the Animals

Feeds for the animals can be purchased from our staffs. For health reasons please do not feed our animals with food other than that provided by the farm. Horses for instance can eat grass all day long but will be very ill and can die if too much horse feed is given.

Wash and Groom

Wet & Wild : On request you and your children can help us wash and groom our ponies and horses, and even the teacup pigs too.

Swimming at Lumtakong Creek

There is no better way to spend a hot afternoon than plunging into the cool and clear water of Lumtakong creek. After a 15-minute car ride you’ll arrive at the perfect spot for taking a dip in the natural creek. The location offers both a shallow, knee – deep area for very small children to play and splash around in with safety, as well as deeper section overlooked by a 5-meter cliff. This ledge offers older children and adults a safe place to jump and dive into the creek. For the thrill seekers a large overhanging tree offers a vantage point for a 12-meter jump into the pool below.

Farm Mor Por: A farm-tastic experience

Heading out into nature is one of the best ways to bond with your children, especially if you live in a large town or city. If you’re looking for the perfect getaway, then we welcome you to Farm Mor Por!

Here at our farm, we offer customized riding camps for children ages from 6-15.

Riding lessons

Riding lessons here at Farm Mor Por are fun and exciting. We offer classes for all ages and will take about an hour long. 

Things you need to wear before taking our lessons:

When attending our riding lessons, make sure to wear proper riding gear. Full-length jeans covering your ankles are essential. Moreover, we urge you to wear riding boots with heels. Lastly, don’t forget the helmets (If you don’t have one, you can request our staff to rent one).

After the first few introductory lessons, the real fun begins when you are taken on short, easy rides in the nearby woods. From then on, a whole new world of adventure will be opened up to you. Here are some of the things you will learn during this course.

  • How to put a tack on the horse

Tack refers to the various accessories that are worn by horses. Some of them include harnesses, bits, and saddles. By learning how to properly put a tack on your horse, it will make you and the horse are both comfortable. Moreover, putting the horse’s tack on correctly is necessary for your own safety. A saddle put on incorrectly could cause a rider to fall—which can result in a serious injury.

  • How to lead the horse on a rope

Beginners have the chance to learn how to use a lead-rope—a very important part of ground training. This can improve your ability to control the horses’ movements and improve your communication with the horse on and off the ground.

  • How to stop and start the horse

This is one of the most important parts of horse training. Here, you can learn how to stop and start the horse both on the ground and on horseback. Moreover, you will be able to control the horse’s movement in addition to other physical and verbal cues.

  • How to mount the horse

Proper mounting of the horse depends on our customer’s preference since there are various techniques available. One of the most popular is the English and western styles of riding.

  • English riding requires a bit of leg balancing and coordination, so riders may not feel safe in the saddle immediately.
  • Western riding has a large saddle which makes sitting easier for beginners to balance. 

The English and western style of mounting a horse differs in hand placement and the type of saddle used. With practice, you can master this in no time!

  • How to ride at a walking pace

Here, we make sure that you’ve established communication with the horse and know how to mount one for you to be ready to ride. The first thing we will do is let you start with a walking pace and practice going in a circle around an enclosed arena. This is a great way for riders to learn how to direct their horse around the corners of the arena.

  • How to trot

A trot is similar to walking but at a slightly faster pace. Learning to trot is an important step for every amateur rider. The ability to trot shows that the rider has learned to interact with the horse and feels comfortable in the saddle.  

  • How to shift position using a saddle

As you learn how to do the trotting pace, we will now teach you how to do ‘posting’. This is the movement from a seated to standing position is important when riding horses. To improve this movement, the rider presses down into the stirrups and keeps the ankles relaxed, not bracing the ankles to force an up and down movement. Moreover, the pressure on the stirrups and flowing with the natural movement of the horse will support a rider post.

Pony rides

Pony rides are always very popular among children visiting our farm. The ride lasts 30 minutes and each pony is led by one of our competent and friendly staff. 

Take note: Parents are welcomed to walk along with their children, but please keep a safe distance as loud noises and sudden movements can sometimes frighten the ponies.

It’s always a challenge to snatch eggs from underneath roosting hens. Moreover, these free-range eggs not only taste better but are a lot more nutritious than factory/caged eggs.

Hayride

A hayride, also known as a ‘hayrack ride’, is a traditional farm activity consisting of a recreational ride in a wagon or cart pulled by a tractor, horses or a truck, which has been loaded with hay or straw for comfortable seating. Here, people can enjoy a 1-1.5 hour hayride into the surrounding orchards and plantations. Depending on the time of the year, you and your family will see various kinds of fruits and vegetables besides just having fun on the tractor.

Feeding the animals

Feeds for the animals can be purchased from our staff. 

Take note: For health reasons please do not feed our animals with food other than that provided by the farm. Horses for instance can eat grass all day long but will be very ill and can die if too much horse feed is given.

Wash and groom

Upon request, you and your children can help us wash and groom our ponies and horses, and even the teacup pigs too. This is a wonderful way to teach your children about responsibility and what better way than participating in this activity.

Swimming at Lumtakong Creek
