If you love horses then you will love the Horse Safari that goes out daily from the stables, just outside Kusadasi. All of the horses are trained to interact gently with humans, and all of the horses love the gentle exercise that the safari offers them. Hardly surprising with the delightful route and extansive view of Kusadasi and the Aegean in the background, through the cooling pine forests and the subtly changing terrain, that leads back down to the beach where you can also ride along the sandy shore.
Horses are allotted to suit the height and weight of the rider, so you need never worry about being given a horse too tall or too small for you. The professional staff at the stables work all year round when the weather is permitting, in close harmony with these lovely animals. They are all well tended and chosen for their gentle nature with man.
In 2023, price of Kusadasi Horseback Riding is 22 € per person. Children under 8 years old are not allowed to ride a horse but can ride the same horse together with their parents.
Everyday, all year round, at 08:30.
This tour is not suitable for people with physical difficulties and this factor should be taken into consideration before booking.
You will begin your day with transfer from your hotel, to the stables on the outskirts of Kusadasi. There you will be greeted by a professsional English speaking guide, who will give you basic tuition before introducing you to your horse for the morning/day. You will be given safety equipment for your tour, which must be worn at all times when riding. Once you are all ready to go, you will travel, in convoy, through the mountains, and along the bridle route. A professional guide will lead the tour and there will also be one at the rear of the convoy. In the unlikely event of you having a problem one of them can be by your side instantly.
This can be taken as a half day or full day tour. The half day tour takes you through the pine forests and then down to the beach, where you can ride along the sand or through the shallow waters of the Aegean shoreline. Again this is wonderful for the horses to cool down on a hot summer’s day.
Once you return to the stables, you will have the opportunity to view any pictures taken by the resident photographer, with an option, of course, to buy if you wish. You will then return to your hotel by the same transport on which you arrived.
