This race is tailored for adept intermediate and experienced outdoor riders seeking an exhilarating and swift adventure in Cappadocia, exploring a more demanding route than a typical trail. No leisurely nose-to-tail horse riding here! Instead, independent riders will navigate together, making it ideal for those who enjoy a challenge.

WHAT IS THE OBJECTIVE OF THE GREAT RIDE?

This orienteering and endurance equestrian challenge involves teams of 6 riders over 7 days and 8 nights. While speed and performance are not the primary goals, the Great Cappadocia Ride draws upon riders' equestrian skills, teamwork, and orienteering abilities amidst the labyrinthine rocks of Cappadocia.

The aim is to navigate the smartest itinerary (utilizing Google Earth), locate highlighted points along the chosen route, adhere to riding times and speed, triumph in challenges, and prepare horses for the ultimate trial: the Endurance Race.
