Tourists enjoy riding during their visit to Uzungöl

Having established a horse farm in Uzungöl, a district in Trabzon province and one of the most important tourist attractions in the Black Sea region, four friends provide domestic and foreign tourists with the opportunity to enjoy horseback riding.

Establishing the farm while working as craftsmen in the Çaykara district, four friends started to render service to tourists on their farm that is approximately 10 kilometers from Uzungöl.

Speaking to Anadolu Agency, Mehmet Sami Nuhoğlu, one of the owners of the farm, said that they wish to contribute to tourism by providing the opportunity of horse riding. Nuhoğlu also said that they started to do business over time with horses that they bought one-and-a-half year ago just because they liked them and added, "We made a facility to pay for the horses, then we expanded our business and we wanted both tourism and tourists to benefit from it. That is how we started this business." Saying that their business attracts great attention, Nuhoğlu added, "Tourists show great interest in our business. They really like to ride the horses around the area and see the natural beauty of the Black Sea, the historical structures and especially Uzungöl."

Nuhoğlu remarked that tourists, who are on their way to Uzungöl, see the farm, go there to get information and then start to ride the horses and ride around the area. "They ride horses around natural and historical areas. They find it fantastic, let off steam and say they are pleased with this experience and that they will come here again next year," Nuhoğlu said.
