Be prepared for some sore legs, but the views are stunning as you ride through the unique landscape at sunset. I cannot over emphasize how lovely this was. We did ballooning at sunrise and horseback for sunset, making for a delightful day.
I have lots of friends that have ridden horses here. Everyone has loved the experience - kids and adults.
I personally went to this place with a friend of mine to have a ride on a horses, horses there is amazing and the place I suggest it because it's not that expensive and you will get the chance to ride on the horse yourself and see all beautiful mountains and lakes with a great horse, the atmosphere is quite good services are perfect.
A group of riding friends and I booked a week’s trail ride in Cappadocia with Akhal-Teke Riding Centre and we had the most fabulous time. Our hosts Ercihan and Susan were warm, caring, interesting people who couldn’t do enough for us. The horses were in beautiful condition, well-mannered and wonderful to ride. The riding terrain was varied, the riding exciting, with plenty of chances for fast riding if desired. The scenery was spectacular, the history and geology of the area incredible. We had a couple of nights in beautiful camping spots and the rest in a wonderful small boutique cave hotel. The food was delicious, with very picturesque lunch spots carefully chosen. The Turkish culture was fascinating to experience and the local people very hospitable. I have taken many riding holidays over the years, in many countries across the globe, and this ride ranks up there with the best of them. Five plus stars all round; highly recommended.
I had a fantastic day of riding with the team from the Akhal Teke Horse Riding Center. The horses were impeccably trained and a pleasure to ride. Bekir was a wonderful guide and our trek took us across fields, up hillsides and through the Fairy Chimney valleys. Lunch was delicious with more food than I could possibly eat! I can't wait to go back for another ride next year!
