come back to your true self, through the heartbeat of a horse ...


the journeys
Our journeys are an adventure by foot with a horse by your side each step of the way.  An adventure into nature and into our own depths. How do we experience ourselves while being in the loving presence of a horse?  What are our presumptions about the horse and about ourselves?  How do these believes influence the way we live our lives?

How can we guide a being that is so much bigger and stronger than us? It's by learning how to trust ourselves in taking the lead with our hearts. When we connect to our heart, the horse connects to us. In these journeys, we will guide you to find the balance between being and doing, between surrendering and deciding. The horse will be your zen master and shows you everything that is inside of you.

Being in the nearness of horses will help you to see where your areas of transformation are. Come and listen to the whispers of your heart, being surrounded by beautiful nature and the loving presence of our (rescued) horses.

While being with them, their big and pure hearts
will have a transformative effect on us humans,
if we allow ourselves to open up to the adventure ...


Cathy's Journey:

'It was a big adventure with lots of learning along the way.  Getting to know the horses better each day was really pleasant. The first day was very challenging for me, but I learned a lot. When I was calmer and more together the experience was very different.  Being outdoors dealing with all the elements felt so good.
Each day I felt a lot more relaxation, surrender, and fun. I am pleasantly surprised how easy it got with the interaction and how gentle and different each of the horses is. It has been a big learning experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone who seeks to connect deeper with themselves.'

Are you longing to be with horses? This is the time to connect ...


The Heartbeat of a Horse:
Horses have hearts, 5 times as big, as human hearts. The frequency of theirs is much stronger than ours.  By means of the natural phenomenon, entrainment our hearts adapts to the horse hearts. We become one with the herd. We feel it on every level, physically and emotionally.

Our State of Being:
Horses are a mirror to the soul. The moment we change how we interact with ourselves and the horse, the horse changes too. They synchronize our behavior and reflect what is going on inside of us. They reflect our State of Being every instant. 
Trusting Ourselves:
In these unprecedented times, we must trust ourselves, our heart, our intuition, our own guidance. Horses can help us to step into our own power and take leadership over our lives. This journey is a journey of a lifetime and will inspire you. It may be the beginning of a new path ...

join us for an inner journey by foot with a horse by your side

For one, three, or five days, we take you on an adventure through the nature of the South-West Algarve. There will be a balance between the kilometers that we will have to walk to arrive at our destination and breaks in between where we will be meditating with the horses and relax in nature.

For the 3 and 5 day journey: When we arrive at our camp for the night, tents are set up and the food (vegan) is ready. There is more than enough time for you to enjoy the beautiful views and reflect on the path that you have walked so far. We end the day with a sharing circle.

In the morning you will be wakened up by the sound of an eating horse, the birds, and the rising sun shining in our morning faces. We start with brushing the horses and setting our intention for the day before we head out into the wilderness. The exact time schedule depends on the weather conditions and the needs of the group. On these exclusive journeys, we can only host maximum of 5 participants.

Tania's Journey

It was a magical way to welcome the new year.  I’m grateful for the introduction you gave me to a more sensitive way to relate with horses and myself. Thank you for the inspiring work you do with humans and horses. It was such a delight to see their freedom and joy. I appreciate very much the respect you showed them and us. I hope that I get to join you again someday soon.

This journey is for those, who go off the beaten path, to connect with the depths of their soul ...

Let the horses guide you to known and unknown places within yourself surrounded by the beautiful nature in the South-West Algarve.  Allow the unconditional love of these beautiful creatures, transform that what needs to be transformed for you to be able to fulfill your heart's longings and to trust your own guidance even more.

It's a time of expanding your horizon on how it can feel to be part of a herd of horses. It’s a joyful, exciting, moving, transforming experience that will bring you closer to the horse but mostly closer to yourself.


1 day - HorseJourney
Even though this is a short journey, we are sure the horses will leave you in a state of bliss. We start at 09.00 and end at 19.00. We start the day with a meditation, to continue with a walk to the forest, and a lunch in between the horses at the lake.


3 day, 3 nights - HorseJourney
A magnificent opportunity for those who don't have the time to spend 5 full days. Three days walking and being with horses is a great way to hear your inner core loud and clear. We walk 2 days for about 16 km, and we will have one day in between to totally relax and tune into the heartbeat of the herd.
5 day, 5 nights -  HorseJourney
The more time you spend with the horses, the more you will become aware of your emotions, and the deeper you are able to dive ... and the bigger the reward will be.
Three walks of around 16 km a day. Two days in between with shorter walks and time to swim, meditate, and just be in the loving presence of the horses.


All HorseJourneys start in Barao de Sao Joao, Algarve, Portugal at 09.00 in the morning.
The 3- and 5-day journeys end after the last night in the morning at 10.00 AM. 
Good shoes and a hat you need for sure.  More details in the FAQ. Food (vegan) is all-inclusive.
During the walks, your luggage will be brought from camp to camp by car (except for a small day pack with your water, etc.).
TEAM

Meet the walkers

For this life changing experience you can build on our experienced and dedicated co-walkers who guide you, each step of the way.
Flame
Rescue
Our alpha male. He was a 'wild ' horse rescued from slaughter in 2014 when he was 2 years old. He learned us a lot about horses. 'He can make big boys feel small and small boys feel big.'
Maya
Rescue
She came in wounded, skinny and scared of people and lost her foal 2 days before we got her in 2017.  After lots of love and training, she became the lead mare. All the horses follow her.
Divina
Rescue
Divina joined us in 2019, together with her son Luciano and the orphan foal Rocky. Her deep scars still remind us of her days pulling heavy carts over sizzling hot asfalto.
Luciano
Happy soul
Lucky Luciano is born dark brown but is grey at the moment and will turn white like his mom Divina. He is a sweet soul who likes to play and chew on everything he can get his mouth on and test you out.
Rocky
Happy being
Rocky came to us, together with Divina and Luciano, as an orphan foal when he was just 1 month old. We became his substitute parents. He loves to get cuddles and he will ask you for it.  He is a brave little horse and not afraid of anything.
Sakshin

The horseman. He makes sure that the herd keeps moving and that you get the guidance and the experience that you need. He will help you to understand your horse and take the lead.
Charlotte

Charlotte will guide you into deeper understanding of the dynamics between you and the horses and will help you to figure out what it means for you and how to integrate that in your daily life.
