Yılkı horses on Yellibel Plateau, at an altitude of 2,300 in Afyonkarahisar’s Emirdağ district, were viewed from the air with a drone in their natural habitats.

The symbol of freedom in the Emir Mountains, at an altitude of 2,300 meters, which gives the Emirdağ district its name, the annual horses attract the attention of photography and nature lovers in all seasons.
Horses grazing on the plateau, drinking water from the ponds formed by snow waters, walking around and galloping in groups were photographed with a drone.
Depending on the season, the horses, which have difficulty in finding grass and water, sometimes go down to the settlements. Sometimes, the wild horses are fed with hay and alfalfa left by the teams of the 5th Regional Directorate of Nature Conservation and National Parks and non-governmental organizations.
Nurettin Yılmaz, who lives in the village of Tez in the region, said, “Yelki horses are spreading in the Emirdag highlands, they are living. This region is the natural habitat of the yamki horses and we are in favor of the protection of these horses and these natural assets.”
