optimum horse & rider 

A Holistic Journey for Mind & Body

This is an Exclusive Equestrian Retreat like no other. Bringing together a small group of like minded horse owners and riders who are ready to unplug themselves from the stress and demands of everyday life and ready to re connect with themselves and horses.


Through the importance of touch and healing with your hands in the form of Equine Massage ‘The oldest form of medicine’, you will learn how you can help your horse make significant improvement within their performance capabilities as well as play a role in their overall health and well-being, you will experience with an open heart and mind a connection with the herd of Finca la Teja, all of whom have their own stories to tell with the art of music through a drumming session and natural horsemanship style groundwork.


Following that we then turn your focus onto your own mind/body journey with Equipilates (Pilates classes for the horse rider) and Rider Biomechanics sessions… the knowledge is now out there for us to become the rider our horses would like us to be… now its your turn to learn about what your body needs and how you can change it for the better.


Amongst this mind/body journey will be the most wonderful hacking experience on horse back, the opportunity to find S P A C E to relax at your luxury accommodation and reflect on what you are learning, to share your experiences with your fellow retreaters over home cooked Spanish food and wine, and to top it all off, the option of having some pamper time in the form of Swedish/Sports massage (included in the price).


This experiential retreat offers you a lifetime of skills, knowledge and awareness alongside reflection and relaxation to not only improve your life but also that of your horses’ lives.
