Riding Horse Group formed in Paro

unnamed (1)April 12, Paro: A riding horse user association called a Taktsang Zhenta Detsuen has been formed and inaugurated by Paro Dasho Dzongdag, Chencho Tshering.

According to the Dzongkhag Livestock Sector, the group is formed to provide equal income generating opportunity to the people of Shari and Tsenzhi communities under Tshento geog who have been providing riding horses services to the tourist visiting Taktsang.

The group formation is also expected to enable the group members to improve their current riding horse service delivery system and inculcate a sense of group saving habits that will benefit both the group members and the two communities in the long run. The group also plans to seek support from the Dzongkhag Administration and Tourism Council of Bhutan to set up other tourist facilities such as public pay and use toilets, proper parking space and cafeteria for the tourist and other guests to diversify their income sources as well as for the visitor’s convenience.

There are currently 28 registered group members with 200 riding horses registered in the group.
