Get in touch now to book your space (max 7 ladies)

In a beautiful environment, surrounded by a small group of women who feel the same, and with the help of the horses, we will show you the power and beauty you have within.

Each of us is unique in her own way.
And for the horses, your way is the only right way.

They accept us exactly for who we are, and the more authentic we are, the more they connect with us.

Riding is possible on this trip, but optional - the real connection happens eye to eye level.

Our philosophy on working with horses

The horses are our trainings partners in this work. 
It is therefore crucial for us to only collaborate with locations where the horses are treated ethically, are happy and healthy, and get to spend as much time as possible outside and in herds.

In Horse guided Empowerment®, everything is based on free choice - both for the client and the horse.

Connection love yourself retreat zanzibar dubai

Either side forms the process, and each party is allowed to go into an activity as deeply as they want to.

If you are nervous, we will not push you into anything you don't want to do.
And equally, also the horse gets to say "no".

If they don't want to participate in any of the exercises, we never force them, but rather are curious to find out the "why".
Listening and observing all their reactions is crucial to the work and is what makes the sessions so powerful. 

Everything these intuitive animals do has a reason.
By exploring the reason, we can tap into their innate wisdom and use that to find out more about ourselves as people. 
Horses don't care about your job title, your nationality, your background or your culture.
They only care about the person who is standing in front of them in this right moment, and will react to you and your emotions in a non-biased way. They form the process, and we are very grateful for their participation and feedback.

Feeding is not allowed in the sessions as it would be distracting, and equally, punishment is also not up for discussion.
