Why Seokwang Horse Riding Center is special ?
Scenes of horses running free or grazing on the sides of Mount Halla is so much a part of the Jeju scenery that it even has its own word in Korean. The term Gosumokma refers to the sight of horses in the vast green pastures on the slopes of Halla. For many visitors to the island, a Jeju holiday may be the first or only chance they get to have a close encounter with the graceful animals. Horse-back riding is, in fact, one of the experience activities listed in almost every tourist guide to Jeju Island and provides a perfect photo opportunity for vacationers to take away with their memories.
