About Desperado Ranch

Horse riding holidays in Fethiye – Southern Turkey

Founded in 1997 in the South-West of Turkey by the Yildiz family. The ranch is now led with the same passion for horses, nature and people in the second generation by Yusuf Yildiz. We are  supported by a number of horse-loving people, both locally and abroad.

The Desperado-Ranch, located between Fethiye and Göcek, is a great destination for experienced riders, beginners, returners to riding and first-time riders of all ages. This is a holiday for nature lovers, adventure seekers and horse addicts, suitable for families, couples, or individual travellers alike. We ride in small groups of 5-6 people and can easily adapt to the ability and wishes to our guests.

What Visitors Say

“Wow! What a day out.”

(…) I cant praise this riding stables enough. I was welcomed like they were my family. I felt very at ease and comfortable. (…) I told Yusuf that I could ride but was a bit rusty, so I had a few lesson before I went on a long hack with the tour group for a 5 hour hack including dinner at this great Eco Lodge park with waterfalls, swings and the usual ambiance. I couldn’t have had a better day out with great company and in safe hands. (…)

“Incredible Experience”

(…)The ranch setting is idyllic and the horses were beautiful and very well cared for. I went for a 2 hour beach hack and the scenery was amazing! (…) Swimming in the sea with their lovely horse was a very special experience that I will never forget! I will definitely be visiting again, and strongly recommend it to anyone!

“Amazing Trek and Lesson”

We went on an amazing, early morning beach and river trek and then returned with my 11 year old son for a lesson. Yusuf is the perfect teacher and my son learned so much from his extremely capable hands. Thanks so much.
