Some of the best family outings we’ve had were impromptu ones.
One such impromptu outing last Sunday led us to a rustic and idyllic place that seems out of the usual scene in our urban city.
A horse ranch, smacked right in Punggol.
We saw horses. Many of them.
Wooden swings were aplenty, and the kids literally had a swinging good time.
Pony feeds were sold at $2 per packet. Although there was just one pony there for visitors to feed, it was enough for the kids, who went jittery the moment the pony’s wet tongue touched their tiny hands.
Our trio were intrigued by the horses. Anyway, it is not everyday that you get to see a horse right here in Singapore.

At one point, one of the horses suddenly let out a sneezing sound, and the boys ran for their lives! It was hilarious!
The highlight of the day was pony riding for the kids. This was our boys’ first experience riding on a pony. They were filled with anticipation while awaiting their turn. The moment they sat on the pony and it started trotting off, both boys had the same expression on their faces – a smile that seems to say, “Hey, this is cool!”
$10 for a 3-5 minutes pony ride seems not cheap, but it was a novel experience for our boys. So, no regrets for us.
Their verdict after the pony ride?
“It was bumpy, but very fun!”
And they wished to try it again.
Perhaps we might consider sending them for riding lessons.
