This is a fantastic trip and something I will remember. I have only ridden a few times and the last time was 25 years ago. I was nervous but it soon went because they stayed with me until I got more confident. These people know what they're doing, horses are well cared for and they all have a beautiful temperament....

We went riding for a week last fall. It was a great week! Horses were well taking cared of and nice to ride. My husband had tryed horse back riding only one time before and Salih teatched him very well. After coming back home, he has been riding regularly. We can totally recommend this place! Dont go to the stable... More

Visiting Turkey for the first time and based in Armalutan, Dortnal Ranch stood out as the place to go and ride. Feli gave us all the necessary information about getting to the ranch and arranged for us to be met off the "Dolly Bus" (dolmus) which is a great way to get to the ranch and see the local scene....

We went to Dortnal ranch last week, and had the most amazing ride. I only wish we had more time, so we could have booked up for more hacks. The horses are in good condition, and you can see they are loved and well cared for. The hack was fun, but also well instructed, and we were put on horses... More

I like riding and always do it worldwide. But I am a timorous rider and a quiet and reliable horse is very important for me. At Dörtnal Ranch - your safety, great educated horses and very professional trainers are guaranteed! I really enjoyed riding through forest and villages and bathing with horses in the see. Very interesting adventure, beautiful surroundings... More

My daughter and I both ride (although my daugher is a much more experienced rider than I am). We booked a 2 hour trek whilst on holiday and can honestly say that it was the best hack that we've ever been on. The owners were great at ensuring we had the right temprament of horse according to our ability and... More

My husband and I took a trip to Marmaris last week and we decided to book a trail ride at Dortnal Ranch. This was my husband's first proper ride, so I'm glad he had such a great experience. In fact he wants to continue riding as a hobby because he had so much fun. The ranch itself is gorgeous, nestled... More

If you are into horses this is the pace to visit, Salih and Felice are amazing hosts, we have been out to ride for the last three visits, absolutely cracking tours of the surrounding mountains. As Salih said coming down 'He doesn't need to go looking for paradise'. I would say that ideally you need to have a good seat... More

Myself and 3 friends went to Turkey for a week's riding holday at the establishment next door to Dortnal; 'Marmaris Horse/Country Club'. Thank Goodness we found Dortnal; the horses were in great condition, the owners are very professional and clearly put their horses first, and we had a great ride out in to the hills. Beware of marmaris horse club...... More
