How would you love to trot along the warm sands with the wind in your hair and the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean lapping against the beach as you ride? You would be forgiven for thinking that this sounds like a scene from a romance novel but in reality it is something that all visitors to Antalya can experience.
This is a beautiful destination and ideal setting to take to horseback and explore the area fuller. You should expect to ride through luscious emerald forests and along golden sands all on horseback. With all horses being carefully paired with their riders for size and personality you are sure to have a fabulous riding experience and share a bond with your horse. You will learn basic riding skills and enjoy a slow pace as you take in the beauty of the nature surrounding you on your ride.
All the horses at the centre are comfortable with visitors and they are well looked after. You will be accompanied on your trek by professional riders who own a wealth of knowledge about the area. Of course they will be there to answer any question that you may have about the horses or indeed otherwise.
This is a fabulous half day excursion that will leave you wanting to come back again and again!

A fully air conditioned transfer minibus / coach will pick you up from your hotel in Antalya and the professional driver will take you safely to the equestrian centre. Upon arrival you will be greeted by your hosts and professional riders. You will then be given a full safety brief explaining all the dos and don’ts that you need to be aware of when riding.
You will be equipped with basic riding gear (hard hat, saddle, stirrups etc…) and there will be a chance to hire riding boots if you choose to do so. After that you will meet your steed and have a chance to get to know each other before setting off on your trek.
The trek is separated into two parts. In the first instance you will ride along the forest paths before beginning the second leg of the journey along the beach. Once you have successfully completed the ride you will return to the centre where you will have a chance to relax and sit down with a drink. During this time the photographs of your excursion will be available for your perusal and available for you to buy if you so wish.
Once you are ready, you will get back in the minibus / coach and you will be taken back to your original point of departure feeling suitably tired but happy.
