The Cappadocian landscape was created for horse riding with its sweeping plains, sloping valleys and wild ravines. The name Cappadocia is believed to come from “Catpatuka” or “Land of beautiful horses”. Horses have been part of Cappadocia’s history since mid-1400s and Cappadocian horses have been famous throughout history for their strength and skills. They are believed to be descended from pure Arabic stock. Pick your favorite horse and follow the trails with us to discover the true beauty of this fascinating area.

Our fully experienced “cowboy” will accompany you on the tour but you will need to be able to command and control your horse. Helmets can be supplied on request. The mountains and valleys may be cool so we recommend you bring a light jacket. Please wear comfortable clothes for riding and flat shoes are recommended.
