Horse riding in Kalpitiya, Sri Lanka
Welcome to Elements Stables - private horse riding on the beach in Kalpitiya Sri Lanka.
Horse riding in Sri Lanka has a long tradition. It dates back to the Portuguese and English settlers, going back centuries. With the independence of Sri Lanka, the culture of horse riding has gone missing.Only in the very recent past have a few equestrians started to revive the tradition of horse riding in Sri Lanka in various parts of the island.
The two horses, Buddy and Aquarius, have called Elements in Kappalady, Kalpitiya, their home since September 2021. They belong to our two daughters, who care for them with much love and attention. "Buddy" and "Aquarius" are their names. They are by now two well trained horses and are being ridden regularly also by our guest.
Our horses are roaming around freely on our 22 acre beach front property. At 10am they are led into the paddock where they are being fed at 11am. The hot hours are their rest time. Between 8-10am and 4-6pm are their working times where our horses are being ridden along the back lands and the beaches of Kalpitiya, Sri Lanka.
The maximum rider weight is 80kg. For 'Buddy,' the smaller horse, the maximum rider weight is 70kg..
