Does anybody know if there are Horses in Cebu...because I\'d like to have a horse to trot around. I only saw a few in Bohol however. Anyone know?

Fareye, I saw some up in the mountains when I was there in December.  That was on the transcentral highway going towards Cantipla.  Take a taxi, or have someone drive you, and go up there.  When you see a kabayo (horse) see if you can find the owner.  I\'m quite sure they\'ll let you ride if you have enough piso.   ;D

From what I\'ve heard you would have more luck finding horses in Bukidnon and other parts of Mindanao.

Thanks Greg...I\"ll keep that in mind and give Cantipla a visit....I know there are horses on other islands...but It may be a bit tricky getting a colt on board a SuperCat ferry?!

With the right trailer, you can put anything except a very pregnant woman on an form of transportation in the RP. Ask Dave about that one.

We have transported a motorcycle in the back of a bus twice now.

I know you can get a horse onto a ro-ro. I was on a boat with two of them. I assume some money changed hands, but hey, whatever works.
