You know what makes traveling more exciting? It’s discovering new places and going on detours. Just is the case with Bantug Lake Ranch.
We were on our way to Campuestohan, perhaps the most popular attraction in Bacolod today, that we passed by this huge billboard that we promised to drop by on way back to our hotel in Bacolod.
We should have went there first and spent more time. It was the perfect detour and unplanned activity while in Bacolod. Named after the owners of the farm, they have lake for fishing, an organic farm and a nice picnic area. Bantug Lake Ranch is a peaceful place and you will see green all over the place.
Another must-do is horseback riding. Perfect for both boys and kids and parents too!
For 50 pesos, you can ride their horses for two rounds inside the corral.
The staff is skilled in handling horses and riders. I never felt safe for my kids. Akira is laughing here because his horse pooped!
I learned that Bantug Ranch has 30 horses, we saw ponies there too. The ranch also offers horse feeding and petting. This is the first time that we experienced riding horses in a more “natural” setting. The kids had fun, especially my youngest because he was dying to ride horses.
After the picnic goers left, these horses naturally grazed.
There are many things to do in Bantug Lake Ranch. I’m sharing the horseback riding because that’s the only activity we tried. We arrived a few minutes before they close early for the staff to prepare for Christmas Eve. My appreciation to the management for letting us ride and apologies for the staff.
We will go back and enjoy more time in Bantug Lake Ranch next time we are in Bacolod. We hope to enjoy picnic ( an other must-want-to-do by the kids) or try their restaurant’s food from their organic garden.
I’m glad we have found Bantug Lake Ranch, another Bacolod tourist destination that you should include in your Bacolod itinerary 3d2n. Have you been there?
