If you happen to be in Baguio City, never miss out on the experience of seeing and/or riding a horse. Horseback riding is one of the local sources of livelihood and a contributor to the local labor/tourism industry indices.
Horseback riding with a guide in the Baguio forests is not only fun and therapeutic, like a sort of open- eyed meditation whilst plugged in with your relaxing Zen music Enjoy the nature scenery of Baguio.
Horse riders can also explore and go inside its forested area with their horse guides. This promenade is well lit at night by a good number of streetlights.
Wright Park Horse Tree Area is one of the few sought after and highly recommended city tourist attraction/destination to learn guided and basic horse riding.
If you’re inexperienced or just too scared to ride the horse alone, Baguio City Pony Boy’s horseback riders, guides can assist you and also ride the horse with you.
Start the day by waking up very early, I suggest around 5:30 am so you can shoot Baguio sunrise in the forest.
You can get good action captured by the moment sunrise equine and stable horse caretaker/owner photos.
If you miss out the early morning, there are also midday/noon horse feeding activities you can photograph.

Horses are grazing animals.I love taking photos of grazing horses in the wild. In Baguio forests, you’ll never miss out one seeing one horse grazing at Baguio City Wright Park Horse Stable Hill.Capture images of horses grazing especially during sunrise do add to the sense of composition, lighting, etc., in your photographs.
Word of advice, use a telephoto lens or just keep a safe distance from the horse since they don’t want to be disturbed during their yummy grass break times.
Use the shade where partially lit areas to expose the horse.
Simply put, at the end of the day, a horse owner, stable boy, caretaker, horse guide goes home with a decent hard day’s money for himself/his family of course also for his horse.
P.S. Some equine sites include Camp John Hay.
