The Cappadocia Endurance Race
Cappadocia Turkey

Once a year the major horse riding centers in Cappadocia are combining forces to offer this exciting and challenging horse event! This unique itinerary combines a spectacular trail ride, an orienteering game, and an endurance race. It will take place annually at the best season of the year and will showcase the most beautiful landscapes of our region. Starting at the 'Bird Paradise' lake in the Sultan Sazli National Park, crossing all Cappadocia from south to north, and passing by the fantastic Red Valley, this itinerary lets you enjoy a great variety of landscapes! It will be an incredible adventure for the riders, and their horses.

This will be a challenge involving horsemanship, orienteering, and team spirit : the winner won’t be the fastest but the most clever team.

You will ride in a small group of 6 riders, through a wild and spectacular landscape. Nights will be spent in comfortable camps, around the fire in a traditional, warm atmosphere, surrounded by horses.  Your goal is to be able to follow the smartest itinerary (using google earth), to find all the highlighted points along your chosen way, to respect riding times and speed, to win the challenges, and to prepare your horse for the final trial: the 40km Endurance Race. Bursting with adventure, this is sure to be an unforgettable ride! Are you ready for the challenge?
