Horseback Riding and Lessons
There are quite a number of year-round riding facilities in and around Seoul. Many teach British-style as opposed to Wester-style riding. The requirement regarding membership fees varies with these clubs; some waive fees for larger groups while others offer services for both members and non-members.
Riding programs for the disabled have begun in recent years in Korea. For example, Notre Dame Community Rehabilitation Center in Incheon (just outside Seoul) has a Riding for the Disabled Department.
Riding instruction is available; however, few clubs offer lessons with English-speaking instructors.
Not all facilities have helmets to loan or rent, so it is advisable to bring your own.
You will also want to get as much information as possible about the stable where you are riding. As this is a relatively new industry in Korea, you may find that it is not quite as closely regulated as some other countries or that regulations may not be as strictly enforced. There are also a number of 'illegal' stables offering instruction. The instructors in some of the lower cost stables may not be qualified, the horses may not be treated as well as one would wish and safety precautions may be somewhat lax. Do check out the facility - see where the horses are kept, ask questions about the instructors qualifications, etc. Facilities are not necessarily insured to the same extent as you may be used to in your home country.
