Fraser's Hill Road Trip (Part 3)

Riding horses and shooting arrows - fun!...

Most of what's available in Fraser's Hill is very activity based - eg. golfing, trekking, horse riding, etc.

Not being very big on golf (or trekking, at that time, because we were not appropriately dressed), we decided to drop by The Paddock:
(Which is right next to the golf course actually)
Inside the Paddock, approaching the stables...

Horseys!:
(I think they had about 6 horses there... We thought that 2 of them looked kinda skinny but maybe they are nursing them back to health? Which would be sweet, especially since one of them had a leg injury*)
(*These were not the riding horses... They were resting in a pasture at the side)
Neigh!...

You can take a ride (RM 4 per round - kids, RM 5 per round - adults):
Saddling up...

Don't worry about if you have no prior equestrian experience, because the "cowboy" will accompany you while you go around the circle:
Yeeeee-ha!...

However, if you feel that horse riding is not really your cup of tea, you can try out the archery range there instead (RM 8 for 10 arrows - no sharing):
The archery area...

Ready, aim, fire! *toing*:
3 in a row...

It's actually a LOT harder than looks. =_=

Despite trying my best to channel Xena the warrior princess and Legolas from LOTR, I only hit the target about 6 times, and mind you not very well at that! - no bulls eye!
(Still, I had lots of fun trying something different....)

Lastly, (yellow faced) poser J the chocoholic:
- Trying to look fierce:
Rowr...

- Uh oh. I'm in trouble!:
Help!...

All in all, a fun and afforable way to spend an hour or two! :)

Ok. Don't laugh. I just found out who you are from Becky. He he... I am a real ditz when it comes to people and faces. An asocial personality trait which I have cultivated. The only memory I have of Fraser's hill is a trip with my parents and a Mat Salleh with a horse. Your post just reminded me that I need to rediscover Malaysia, and who the people I met are.

yeah.. Fraser's Hill is a place for family, golfers and nature enthusiasts... as there are not many things to do in this quaint hill

to Pure Glutton:
Tsk tsk. How can liddat. No semangat Malaysia wannn. :P
(Haha... Sorry, just teasing)

Well, there's not really very much to do in Frasers unless you want to relax or play golf. Still, it's worth at least one visit, I guess....

to Paranoid Android:
It's ok. :)
Anyway, I dare not laugh because it would absolutely be like the kettle calling the pot black. :)
(Though not in this case specifically. Just that I am generally quite bad with names too.. :P)

to Thule aka Leo:
I would love to relax in the little English/ Tudor style houses that have been converted to hotels there though - didn't get to go in any but passed by a few.
