PETALING JAYA (March 12): Gamuda Land has partnered with the 3Q Equestrian Centre (3Q Equestrian) in a bid to enhance the placemaking of its township of Gamuda Gardens in the Klang Valley North. The horse-riding facility is slated to open in April.
Gamuda Land CEO Ngan Chee Meng said in a press release: “Our partnership with 3Q Equestrian reaffirms Gamuda Land’s forward-thinking commitment to placemaking in our developments, ensuring a thoughtful mix of residential, commercial and recreational components to build thriving, connected communities. Through this collaboration, we are anticipating and addressing growing interest in outdoor activities as Malaysians emerge from months of nationwide lockdowns.”
3Q Equestrian will operate a horse-riding facility in Gamuda Gardens, comprising a paddock for leisurely pony rides as well as a guided horse ride along a 1.5km Gardens Hill forest trail.
The collaboration with the founders of 3Q Equestrian, the Ambak family, which has a generations-long legacy in the Gamuda Gardens area, is a testament to Gamuda Land’s efforts in safeguarding the natural heritage of the site. 3Q Equestrian director Qabil Ambak said: “Our family has had a presence in the area where Gamuda Gardens now stands dating back many years. The infrastructure it has built, while working with nature to bring out the beauty of the location, showcases their sustainable approach and development values. These values are deeply in tune with our own, which is why we look forward to this collaboration.”
Established in 1990, 3Q Equestrian Centre has built a reputation as an equestrian training destination and a competition venue within Southeast Asia, having produced top equestrian athletes. Its upcoming horse-riding attraction in Gamuda Gardens will be one of the pull factors driving the growth of the 810-acre township.
Apart from the upcoming horse-riding facility, Gamuda Gardens features activities under Xploria, including a Donut Boat ride, Nature School programme, Paws Playland pet agility training ground, Gardens Arena FIFA-standard football turf, Waterfront Village, Gardens Wellness Club and Big Bucket Splash water play park, with more to be unveiled soon.
Other components include wellness amenities, an international school, the Gardens Square commercial centre and a city centre. Gamuda Gardens is accessible by major routes including the North-South, LATAR and Guthrie Corridor Expressways.
