"Akhal-Teke" is one of the most beautyful studs I have ever seen. The proper site is splitted in two areas - one inviting garden restaurant (with delicious food), as well as the amply stables where the horses have clean boxes, wide paddocks and a nice manege. I was on a 7-days trail with Akhal-Teke along the breathtaking scenery of Cappadocia.... More

A group of riding friends and I booked a week’s trail ride in Cappadocia with Akhal-Teke Riding Centre and we had the most fabulous time. Our hosts Ercihan and Susan were warm, caring, interesting people who couldn’t do enough for us. The horses were in beautiful condition, well-mannered and wonderful to ride. The riding terrain was varied, the riding exciting,... More

I had a fantastic day of riding with the team from the Akhal Teke Horse Riding Center. The horses were impeccably trained and a pleasure to ride. Bekir was a wonderful guide and our trek took us across fields, up hillsides and through the Fairy Chimney valleys. Lunch was delicious with more food than I could possibly eat! I can't... More

I stayed Avanos for 2 days and Akhal-Teke Horse Riding Center has arranged custom tour just for me! 6 hours a day tour with a skilled and friendly guide. The horses are well-trained, calm and beautiful. I strongly recommend this experience - cantering in the field, exproing narrow slope surronded by rocks. And it was really reasonable price compared to... More

Be prepared for some sore legs, but the views are stunning as you ride through the unique landscape at sunset. I cannot over emphasize how lovely this was. We did ballooning at sunrise and horseback for sunset, making for a delightful day.

We took a 60 minute ride, four horses and two expert guides. Went over some incredible scenery including a river and lovely rolling plains. Its expensive but worth it. The horses are magnificent and well-trained.

Akhal Teke was a life changing experience. It was like a week of magic that changed how I viewed the world. The horses there are smart, hard working, and full of trust and devotion to their caretakers and their owner, Bekir, who is one of the most stunning horsemen I have ever met-kind and loving to all of his horses....

I've been to Akhal-Teke Horse Riding Center in July 2014, spent one week in Avanos and would not want to miss a minute!! I travelled with my then 8 year old daughter who found herself in heaven. People are very friendly and the horses are amazing and very well kept.
