Cappadocia is indeed a remarkable region in Turkey known for its unique rock formations, enchanting "fairy chimneys", hot air balloon rides, and equestrian culture. Its inclusion on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1985 highlights the area's significance, both in terms of its natural and cultural heritage.

One of the most unforgettable ways to explore Cappadocia is through horseback trail rides. It's important to note that this joyful experience is best suited for advanced and experienced horse riders. Some of the routes may require galloping, and there might be instances where you need to dismount and remount independently. These are key considerations to ensure your safety and enjoyment during the ride.

The choice of riding with well-mannered and lively Arabian and Anatolian-Arabian horses enhances the experience. These breeds are known for their stamina and agility, making them ideal companions for exploring the diverse terrain of Cappadocia.

Our family business was found in 1988 by Ercihan and its managed by himself and his wife Tülin. We care about our Horses well being and we consider them part of our family. If you care about the well being of horses, you are at the right place. Becoming one of the leading names about horseback riding in Turkey, Ercihan owes his success not only to his experience and passion about horses and riding but also his values; he never sees horses as just animals, but rather as companions for life. Over the last ten years, Ercihan has successfully trained horses that have become national champions in Endurance competitions. The Hippotherapy Project continues along with Nevşehir University. The family also continues to maintain several associated social responsibility projects. Ercihan has also organized horse riding expeditions all over the world in different terrains and conditions. As a believer of continuous learning and development, he loves to share his knowledge and experience with people. His unique approach gives even very experienced riders a new way of looking at the nature of the horse.
