The program is designed for horse lovers who want to improve their body awareness and understand horse training better. We offer a unique retreat that combines Natural Horsemanship and Yoga. This program allows you to learn, play, love and have fun in a beautiful location surrounded by rice fields and green gardens with breathtaking views of Volcano Merapi and Merbabu Mountain. We offer a balance between mind, body and soul through yoga, leadership and horse work. Working with horses is empowering and mind-opening as they tend to mirror your own state of being. No prior experience in riding or yoga is required, just an open mind and love for the outdoors to enjoy this empowering experience.

The dates are set approximately, for further info please contact us.

    The key lesson I took away from my time her was the importance of persisting until I discovered my own unique connection to the horse. While other instructors had always emphasized concepts like "riding with feeling" and "clear communication with the horse," I often found myself confused about how to actually achieve this. Here, instead of receiving more explanations and corrections, I was simply encouraged to keep trying until I found that personal connection and understanding... This meant letting go of traditional techniques and instead focusing on being relaxed and centered within myself. The peaceful atmosphere of the farm also played a significant role in my growth, both in terms of my horsemanship skills and my personal confidence. I arrived as a student and left as a friend, with a newfound commitment to continue working on my connection with horses in this way...

    Geweldige plek om veel over paarden te leren! Ze behandelen de paarden heel goed en proberen zo natuurlijk mogelijk met ze om te gaan. Je kunt er ook blijven slapen en een yoga retraite volgen. Dan doe je niet alleen yoga voor het paard, maar ook voor jezelf! Je logeert dan in een prachtig traditioneel Indonesisch houten huis, met een natuurlijk zwembad en uitzicht op de paardenweide. Ik ben echt fan en kom hier graag weer terug!

    I cannot praise Ana enough. She was my initial instructor and provided me with a solid groundwork. Ana imparted valuable knowledge about horses that I still retain. She emphasized love and respect and her presence was always enjoyable! Additionally, she was both affordable and kind. The atmosphere here is truly special! I highly recommend this place to individuals of all ages and sizes who are looking to begin or further their passion for horses.
