Side Horse Riding

  Last Updated: April 18, 2024

Side horse riding tour is available every day and there are several time slots. Both transfers, helmet for safe riding, briefing (or training if required) are included in the price of the tour.

If you are a a beginner, we suggest you to take one hour horseback riding in the forest. The learning process is quick, the horses are well trained. The hour-long ride brings the joy of communicating with these amazing animals and the freshness and scents of the woods air.

We also offer a two-hour variant of this tour for you to choose from. It takes place at sunset, an hour ride in the forest and an hour on the beach. We recommend booking the horse safari tour at least one day in advance.

The beautiful landscape of the Side and Manavgat region awaits you for your relaxing horse safari.  Through the forests, orchards, villages and rivers of this beautiful area, you will see scenery and landscape that you will never forget.  Better still, to do this tour on horseback will ensure the memories stay with you always.

Side is also known as the pearl of the Turkish Riviera and offers some of the most stunning coastlines in Turkey.  For horse lovers this excursion is a must. 

You can gallop along the beach at sunset almost as if you were starring in your own romance novel.  You can also enjoy the ride through the orange groves and the stunning countryside scented with citrus on the light breeze.  You may wish to venture up some of the more hilly paths to gain a vantage point over the breath taking scenery.

All in all there is perhaps no better way to feel at one with nature than trotting along with your horse soaking up the atmosphere and enjoying the countryside.

Side Horse Riding Tour Program

You will be given the choice of three itineraries when you arrive at the Horse Farm.  Pick up will be from your hotel or apartment, with comfortable transfer vehicles and friendly staff.  You will be taken to the Horse Farm where our professionally qualified staff will greet you and introduce you to the horses.  The Horse Farm houses specially bred Arabic and domestic horses.  The Farm is close to hotels, so a short journey is to be expected.

After the comfortable transfer from your hotel or apartment and arrival at the ranch, you will be introduced to the horses by our professional guide, who will also give you information regarding the horses and the tour itself.  A basic training session will then be given so that you can get to know your horse, with the comfort of knowing the trainer is at hand to assist you. 

All horses at the ranch are well trained and docile thus the tour is extremely safe for young and old alike.  In fact horse riding is proved in tests to be of benefit to all able bodied children helping with their posture and spine support.  More important than this again is the empathy children develop between human and horse, endorsing the love of animals in general.  The interaction between horse and rider is one of trust and enjoyment, making this a particularly beneficial tour for families and particularly children.

Shore riding

This quite simply is a ride along the sandy beaches of the area, with the beautiful Mediterranean backdrop to enhance the wonder of this tour.

Countryside riding track

You will ride through the pine forests around Side and Manavgat.  This particular route is beneficial for health and well being, both for rider and horse, with the purest of air and the smell of pine to cheer you along.

Pathway track riding

Through the foothills of the fabulous Taurus Mountains, with the spectacular views looking over Side and the sparkling blue Mediterranean beyond.  A delight for the senses, whether you ride in the morning, afternoon or the evening.

When you choose your route and have completed the basic training at the ranch, you will set off for the hour long ride of your chosen route, relaxed and happy.

Your comfort and security is always a precedent in this tour provided by the caring and qualified staff.   The rest is left to Mother Nature.
