Physical Condition and Riding Ability
Riders must be able to tack up and mount their horse unassisted, and be confident on leading their horse on rough terrain and riding during group canters on forward-going horses. Before coming to Turkey, go for a few rides outdoor and exercise yourself in order to avoid muscular pain or irritations during the trail.
Riders must be in good physical condition to take part on the progressive trail. Circuit includes a few difficult ways where riders will be asked to dismount and lead their horse for a short amount of time.

Riding Schedule
The riding day will start early in the morning (08:00 am in the saddle) followed by a big break after lunch and 1 or 2 hours of riding in the evening. Riders arrive on horseback at the accommodation, and park the horses for the night in front or very close to the hotel. No travel by minibus required during the week.

This trail includes 5 riding days with 5-6 hours one horseback per day. We cover approximately 35km per day on varied terrain. The pace is primarily at a walk but with opportunities to canter every day. Sometimes we will have long canters (15 minutes).

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 qualifed 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.

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
