Targeting the children and adolescents of the wealthy, a new indoor horse-riding club opened at a shopping mall in Dalian, Northeast China's Liaoning province.The club has nine ponies, which are about 1.2 to 1.4 meters high.It costs 400 yuan (.2) for 45 minutes. For those who want to take a try, it costs 168 yuan for 15 minutes."Indoor horse-riding clubs are springing up all around the country," said Li Xiaoyang, general manager of Dalian Liangyun Equestrianism Club.

With the guidance of a coach, a child at the age of 3 to 7 can ride independently within 10 minutes.

Liangyun opened the country's first indoor riding club at another commercial complex in Dalian last December. Currently, there are dozens of similar clubs in China and the number keeps rising."Compared with outdoor clubs, they are more profitable," said Li.He said that the outdoor riding club in Beijing operated by Liangyun has 70 horses and 24 trainers to serve its 800 members.However, thanks to the innovation of indoor operation, the indoor club in Dalian needs only 9 horses and 4 coaches for 300 members.
