What to expect

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 60 Tushetian horses 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 next FeelQuest Journey, to focus on your wellbeing, your happiness and your freedom.

Join us for a week in Georgia
away from crowded cities, and return to your own inner nature.

With a mix of Horse guided Empowerment® coaching sessions, meditations in nature, breathing work, nature walks and time for yourself - this trip will allow you to regain balance and inner strength.

You will return feeling completely at peace.

Think horses, more horses, and vast plains... no fences, no borders....
A place where you can truly free your inner wisdom, be 100% authentic, wild and real.
