Turkey Horse Riding

Horses in Cappadocia © law_keven

The name 'Cappadocia' is derived from the old Persian name 'Katpatuka', meaning 'The Land of Beautiful Horses', so what better way to explore this land than on horseback? Visitors can enjoy a scenic ride along the banks of the Kizilirmak (Red River), visit the 13th century Caravenseri (road side inn) of Sarihan, ride through Cappadocia's famed fairy chimneys, visit the natural springs at Kalker Lake or enjoy spectacular views from the top of Ziyaret Mountain.
