S International Equestrian Center (SIEC)
The sense of freedom we are filled with while riding on the back of a galloping horse, the power we feel in while challenging the wind and jumping over the fences, the trust we build while becoming friends with an animal as beautiful and modest as a horse… These are just some of the reasons why horse riding turns into a passion for many sports people.
With a love for horses that she inherited from her father, Mrs. Sevil Sabancı followed her dream of spreading this passion and providing riders in Turkey with a professional riding environment when she founded S International Equestrian Center (SIEC) in 2005.
SIEC was first designed by architect Brigitte Weber and built on 7500 m2 land in Istinye. In 2015, the facility moved to Kemerburgaz and it continues to provide service to horse owners and professional riders. Riders can take training classes taught both by national and international trainers and stable their horses in SIEC for high quality care and training.
