Horse riding makes a comeback on Hua Hin beaches

From next Friday, horses are expected back on the beaches of Hua Hin, on the Gulf of Thailand. It follows the easing of more Covid-19 restrictions last week as Prachuap Khiri Khan officials allowed some businesses, including horse-riding operations, to reopen. It’s understood that hotels, department stores and shopping malls are also back in business.

Hua Hin is starting to welcome more visitors and horse-riding on the beach has always been a popular activity with families who have young children. It’s hoped the operators of horse-riding centres can now start earning a living, having been severely affected by both the Covid-19 crisis and the outbreak of the African Horse virus, which has killed at least 500 horses across Thailand.

The chief veterinarian from Prachuap Khiri Khan’s Livestock Department, Chamorn Sakdinan, says a recently launched vaccination campaign has prevented any further deaths of horses in the region. He says horse owners can resume business provided their animals are kept in stables at night and under mosquito nets, to combat the mosquito-borne illness. He adds that owners will not have permission to move horses outside of Hua Hin.

    SO THE HORSES ARE BACK MAKING A MESS ALL OVER THE BEACHES WHERE YOUNG CHILDREN PLAY AND PEOPLE EAT AT BEACHSIDE CAFES
    VENDORS RARELY CLEAN UP THE MESS AND THE LARGE NUMBER OF DOGS ALSO MAKE A MESS AND ATTACK PEOPLE REGULARLY
    TOURISTS WILL NEVER ACCEPT THIS…AND NEVER RETURN TO HUAHIN
    TOO MANY HORSES AND TOO MANY DOGS ARE NO GOOD FOR THE TOURIST DOLLAR AND LOCALS HAVE TO ACCEPT THIS BAD MANAGEMENT ALSO…
