I spent three weeks in Bali with my husband in March ’05, and one of my outstanding memories was riding horseback along the coast north of Sanur.

I was picked up at my hotel in Sanur at 8:30 in the morning by a driver and taken to the Saba Bay Stables about 40 minutes north. The horseback ride was approximately three hours long and was along the black-sand Saba Beach, by local temples and through bamboo plantations. It was a ride to see the Bali people at their daily activities.

Near the end of the ride we were met by two people from the stables who had climbed a coconut tree. They cut off the the top of a coconut and gave it to me with a straw to drink the milk. After this short rest we rode to Lorin Resort, where I was served a delicious lunch at the hotel surrounded by a lovely tropical garden. I was driven back to my hotel in Sanur by about 2 o’clock.

My day’s activities cost $56 and included all transportation, lunch, horseback riding, etc. Saba Bay Stables can be contacted at (0361) 292523 or through a travel agent or by visiting any hotel tour desk in Bali.
