About this Kusadasi tour
One of the best and most exhilarating ways to take in the beauty of Turkey with your very own eyes is to mount a horse. Don’t worry if you’re not skilled at horseback riding, because the tour will begin with a briefing and a horse chosen to suit your size and riding ability. Proven to aid with muscle strengthening, motor function and coordination, horseback riding will give you a boost of self-confidence and will release those feel-good chemicals in your brain.
The incredible countryside and coastal trails will tempt you to capture photographs the entire trip. Expect to see numerous rare plant species on the journey, many of which are aromatic and some that have medicinal properties.
Don’t forget to bring waterproof sunscreen with you, because when you arrive at Pamucak Beach, a swim in the Aegean Sea will be tempting. Based about two miles west of Ephesus, the beach is one of the least crowded in Kusadasi.
Before you trot back in the direction of the stables, feel the soft sand between your toes on Pamucak Beach and enjoy a sunbathing session.
An Overview of the History of Horseback Riding
For horseback riding to be possible, and safe, the animal must be calm. Animals were first domesticated by humans thousands of years ago, with horses said to have been tamed for more than 10,000 years. Once upon a time, these beautiful creatures would have been hunted for meat! However, it was approximately 4200 BC when history’s first important horse ride took place. When humans discovered that these strong animals proved useful for herding sheep and cattle, as well as the fact that they provided a fast form of transport, increasing livestock herds soon became a necessity. Mounting was a tricky task before the invention of the stirrup, though!
