In the Ancient Times, the name “Cappadocia” meant “the land of beautiful horses” and the finest horses were raised in this region. Nowadays, even though the horses are not the means of transportation, you can still enjoy the ride through ancient villages to meet with locals and pass through valleys with stunning rock formations, called as fairy chimneys. The soft rocks have been sculpted by erosion from the natural forces, like wind and water, into shapes which can fuel your imagination and local legends.
A special type of horse called as “Yilki” is used in our tours which are actually the brothers and sisters of the ancient horses. These horses are still living in the wild nature on the skirts of Mount Erciyes. This means that you will be riding the horses which gave the name to the region because of the high quality and excellent loyalty. In all our tours, so you can ride from village to village on horseback because the valleys and villages are located in the neighbourhood..
