What you'll do

I'll welcome you next to the field and will introduce you to the 3 horses and 2 foals that we took in, the youngest being born 28th May 2019. After the introduction, you can step into the field to become one with the herd. The horses might pick their walking partner or you can pick the one you feel comfortable with. Horses are mirrors to the soul and they can reflect your actual State of Being. I might reflect on things that I notice in you while being with a horse. This can be an insightful experience. Most people leave here with a feeling of wellness, calm, and centeredness. But the main thing is going for the walk in the beautiful hills around Barao de Sao Joao. Halfway the walk we take a little break before we head back. Bring something to drink. I'll make sure that it will be an unforgettable experience.

Sakshin;

Ever since I was a child I was dreaming of having a horse. I had to become 50 years to finally realize that dream. Soon I understood that 'dreaming' about a horse is totaaaally different than actually having one... 6 years ago, rescued from slaughter by a friend of mine, I walked 'Flame', my first horse, home for the first time. That was the moment the real adventure started. Being with Flame not only taught me lots about horses and how to take care of them, but my life changed profoundly. More and more I became grounded in myself and dared to stand in my own power. Now, almost 6 years and 4 extra horses later, the horses made me into a horseman, and it feels like it has never been different. I want to share my experience with you by taking you on an empowering walk with the 5 horses.

Where you'll be

State of Being; Horse sanctuary, is located just South of the picturesque village Barao de Sao Joao. The fields have great views of the village and the mountains Monchique and Voia in the distance. The walk takes us through backroads and a small track and we'll pass the Capela do Monte on a distance.
