The focus will be on your breath. Through breathing exercises and body language you will begin the conversation with your horse.

We believe that creating a relationship with your horse is paramount for your time spent together during this week.
Being at liberty, the horse keeps his free will and therefore becomes a willing partner. 

Having formed a connection you will receive a riding class with your horse and learn how to communicate with one another, connecting physically and energetically through breath, balance and posture.

After lunch, take the afternoon off to go sunbathe or walk along the white sandy beaches and swim in the Caribbean seas. If you feel like it that day, you can explore lots of fun activities like surfing, body boards or paddle boards.
