This is to notify all tour operators that the Horse Contractors Association has been recently formed for Taktshang, Paro. This was initiated in response to the need to streamline the pony riding services and improve safety for tourists who avail such services to visit Paro Taktshang.

Therefore, TCB would like to request all tour operators wishing to avail pony riding services to make bookings through the horse contractors association with effect from 1st August 2019 and discontinue any past and existing contracts entered with the horse contractors.

In order to arrange pony services, please contact the following
