Unbridled Empowerment:
A Women's Retreat on the
open plains of Georgia

7 to 13 October 2024 


Discover the extraordinary FeelQuest Retreat in Georgia - an exclusive experience tailored for women only.

This retreat is for you if:

  1. You love the idea of embracing true freedom.
  2. Your desire is to unearth your inner strength and discover your genuine voice.
  3. You have a deep love for horses and are searching for a profound bond with these majestic creatures.

No prior riding experience is required - we specialize in a gentle, mindful approach of coaching with horses, mainly from the ground, that will empower you to conquer any fears you might have.

"This retreat has been so impactful that I am now describing my life as "before / after Georgia". It is very difficult to describe the magnitude of the experience in words. The enormous amount of self discovery, conquering of fears, being empowered to take control of my life again are some of the many outcomes of the retreat, inspired by the magnificent horses and the beauty of nature as well as the two amazing facilitators Monica and Maria. I think everyone should have this experience at least once in their life!" 
Carina, November 2021

Travel information

Georgia is relatively easy to travel to. It is a multicultural epicenter at the old crossroads of the Silk Road, where east and west, Europe and Asia meet. Most nationalities do not require a visa to travel to Georgia and Georgians are generally very open to foreign cultures. The exact requirements for travel can be found here on the official government website).

Please also read the travel advice section on Soso's website here and double check with your local embassy to make sure you are safe to enter before booking your trip.

More information about Soso and his horse herd:

All our coaching are based on interacting with a herd of horses - not only one horse.
Georgia and the herd from Soso Shetidzes offer exactly that:
a true herd of happy horses who will guide you to find your own happiness.

More than 100 Tushetian horses of all ages live together freely in a herd the way their ancestors have done it before.
Born and raised on meadows, they have never seen a stable and are able to roam around as much as they want to.

All year around the horses are kept in freedom. One can state that this is truly a horse's paradise.
The wellbeing of his horses is crucial for Soso - which makes this the perfect location for our FeelQuest Journey, to focus on your wellbeing, your happiness and your freedom.

Read this article to understand why we have selected Georgia as a location for our FeelQuest retreats:
From October till May Soso and his horses live at the entrance of Vashlovani Nationalpark, where he offers a farm stay. The park entrance is just 2km away and the surroundings are steppe-like and the perfect place to free your mind. 
Freedom, space and natural horse keeping in alignment with local traditions and lifestyle are at the core of this journey.
