Special Ride 2019
Each year, we are going on a special ride with just a few guests. We will load the horses and transfer them to other areas of Turkey where we will discover historical routes or follow the hoofprints of historic travellers.
These tours do not exactly match your plans? Please contact us for special arrangements. We can offer riding lessons, day rides for different levels of riding experience also outside our riding season.
Leaving nothing but a hoofprint...
Cappadocia, outstanding beauty, sculptured by nature over 10.000s of years, inhabited by mankind for thousands of year having left their traces.
What is our part in this history? We would like to show you the beauty and the cultural heritage of this ancient area – but are we not a part of it's destruction by doing that? How can we do to preserve nature and history for our children? Probably there is no perfect solution but we do what we can to leave the area we are riding as untouched as possible.
Riding & Yoga
Combine great riding with relaxing yoga on this fun and unique horse riding and yoga holiday. Enjoy full days of riding with the opportunity to ease those riding muscles with relaxing and rejuvenating yoga at the end of the day.
The yoga sessions are suitable for all levels of experience including complete beginners and experienced yogis. The classes will be focused on preparing the body and mind for riding, easing tired muscles after riding and will allow the rider to feel centered, relaxed and calm. Yoga also helps with body alignment, focus and balance which is why it complements riding so well.
Friends and hospitality
Turkey is famous for it's hospitality and we would like you to experience this hospitality throughout your holiday. Whereever we ride, we often meet people who stop their work, come to see the horses and to ask where we are going and will even insist that we try the fresh fruit from the trees in their gardens. On our rides we will have meals or stop for tea in local restaurants.
