Physical Condition and Riding Ability
You must have a competent riding level to take part in our trails. Our horses are forward going and you must be able to stay in control during group canters. You must be able to stay in the saddle firmly during group canters, and be able to tack up your horse yourself. Before coming to Turkey, go for a few rides and get adequately fit in order to avoid muscular pain or irritations during the trail.
Riders must be in good physical condition. Circuit includes a few difficult ways where riders will be asked to dismount and lead their horse, sometimes up steep paths.

The pace is mostly at a walk, with opportunities for trots and canters each day. The program includes 6 riding days. On average, we will ride 25-38 km and spend 5 to 6 hours on horseback each day. We will take regular breaks throughout the day and stop for at least one hour for lunch. Each day begins and ends with a 5-10 minute walk (on foot), for the riders and the horses to warm up/relax.

The riding equipment includes standard bits and pelhams as well as McClellan light trailing saddles and saddles made by ourselves. These are fitted with two saddlebags for you to carry the picnic and personal belongings for the day.

Our stable is composed of forward-going Arab, and cross-Arab horses who will surprise you with their robustness and their agility. They are 1,50 m tall on average - the ideal size for trailing on tortuous paths! All our horses are responsive, well balanced and respectful of the rider and they are extremely sure-footed.
We have put a lot of time and investment into the quality of our horses. Since 2015, more than half of our cavalry has been renewed with pure Arabian endurance horses. Most of our horses have qualified in national endurance races.
We have invested in a horse walker and in an arena in order to continue to offer riders well trained horses.
Our horses live together as a herd and all spend their days outside grazing in our fields when not on the trail.
Horses are assigned according to riding levels and riders' preferences, but the size and the weight of the rider are also important criteria.
Our team will groom and prepare the horses, so no participation is required by the rider.
Weight Restriction
Riders cannot be over 85kg. We will weigh riders on arrival and those over will not be able to participate in the riding program.

We will provide 1 guide for every 4 riders.

Travel Insurance
You must have appropriate travel insurance to take part in our trails. Make sure your policy covers horse-riding activities abroad. Your insurance details will be requested on arrival.

Riders 12 years and older can participate, but anyone under 18 years must be accompanied by an adult!

Passport and Visa Requirements: Passport valid for at least three months from date of departure from Turkey required by all nationals referred to in the chart, except: 1. nationals of Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Liechtens. more
