400 wild horses gallop through Turkey’s Cappadocia

Around 400 wild horses have been introduced to run freely in nature in the Central Anatolian province of Nevşehir, known globally for its unique landscape of fairy chimneys. 

Ali Kemer, who has worked as a horse breeder for 30 years, said they were trying to increase the population of horses but they needed more support.

“We are waiting for support from government. Often these wild horses cannot find even a place to drink water. Factories deposit their waste in fresh water streams and rivers,” Kemer said.
