A summer retreat in the mountains outside Barcelona, Spain

Welcome to our exclusive FeelQuest Retreat in the forest of Cataluña, Spain with the wisdom and presence of horses and nature.

This extraordinary experience offers a unique chance for a few selected women to embark on a transformative journey of self-discovery and personal growth.

6 days living in and with nature

This retreat is designed for women seeking a deeper connection with themselves. The main part of the retreat is the profound work with horses, conducted from the ground to establish a non-verbal, intuitive connection.

Accommodation Rancho Riu de Gaia Spain Retreat

Horses, known for their sensitivity and ability to mirror emotions, serve as powerful guides on this journey of self-exploration.

We combine the coaching with meditation sessions for mindfulness, with slow Tai Chi movements suitable to any fitness level, art therapy and lots of time to relax.

We are staying at a small ladies run ranch surrounded by 55ha private forest where magnificent Spanish horses roam free, together with dogs, cats, chicken, rabbits, and more!


All interactions with the horses take place on the ground, utilizing our unique method known as Horse Guided Empowerment. Riding or natural horsemanship classes can be arranged for those who want (no extra charge).

The retreat combines different healing modalities:

  • Horse guided Empowerment Coaching sessions
  • ‘Forest baths’ and walks with the horses offer a chance to immerse oneself in nature's tranquility, fostering a sense of grounding and balance
  • Art therapy for expression and self-discovery
  • Xi-qung and Tai-Chi to cultivate and balance the body's vital energy
  • Sound Healing
  • Embodiment
  • Cooking local food
  • Conscious Horse riding available for those who would like

Rancho Riu de Gaia

horses at feelquest spain

We have chosen this lovely farm owned by Carén Perdú because we immediately connected with her - a true expat who has seen the world, a horse and freedom lover, and an amazing host!
Her horses roam freely around the 55 hectar nature paradise which Caren calls home. Wake up to the sight of horses eating hay outside your window, see them running up the hills at dinner time and take them for walks to picnic spots overlooking the valley and forests....
Breakfast eggs come from the neighbors chicken, the bread is home made, and you will immediately feel at home in this wonderful valley.
Enjoy the nature, the space to be yourself, and wonderful conversations with horses and a small group of other international women!
