Right - I've just moved here and live in the Binh Duong area and about 3 weeks ago I spotted about 3 or 4 horses/ponies with what looked like a yearling in tow. They were grazing around with some brown cows (sorry to the agriculturists - I don't know what breed) and looked in pretty healthy condition. I saw a local (I believe the owner) leading them away about 4 days later and haven't seen them since.
I'm determined to find some horse interaction near where I live so I thought I would post this thread in case any other horse lovers can note down the last place/area they spotted horses in and what condition they were in.
Hopefully this way we can ask around with the locals in case somebody hits a jackpot!
So far my searches have managed to find a horse riding centre somewhere in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) as I found their page on Facebook. Unfortunately I haven't received contact back from them yet but I will try again now that I am actually in Vietnam in case that makes a difference.
I have also managed to get positive remarks of the possibility of horse riding up near Ha Long Bay area (I imagine beach rides or similar).
Please be careful however, as in regards to any animal contact there may be a risk of infectious diseases or parasites.
I am a horse trainer who develops horses for performance horsemanship disciplines. Here in Vietnam I am mostly just a Mum who is attempting to home-school via correspondence a year 1 boy with a younger one in tow who luckily will be able to attend a school near our home.
If you haven't seen any horses but are keen on them. Still pop in a comment to say hi and chat horses and connect
