Horse Guided Empowerment is an innovative and unique method for motivating deep personal change in coaching and therapy sessions, based on the philosophy and guiding principles of Natural Horsemanship.

All our retreats take place in stunning locations, with free spirited, partially tamed herds.

How do you know if this retreat is right for you?

Have you experienced fatique, fear, or debilitating stress?
Do you want to re-connect with your compassionate, energetic self?
Do you want a guided, hands-on experience in a unique, natural habitat?
Do you want to experience empathy, respect, and well-being through horses?

All our retreats are focused on leaving you stronger and more confident to deal with the obstacles in your life, and to give you the tools to find the right answers.

The contact with the horses under the supervision of our certified practitioners helps you access the power within you, and is a safe catalyst to explore and let out what is inside you.

Horses are kind, sensitive animals – they don’t judge, and they react unfiltered to our intentions – not just to what we want to say, but to the meaning behind our words.

This helps us become aware, and awareness is the first step towards change.

Why FeelQuest©?

The name FeelQuest implies our core values:

Our events are all centered around your feelings and emotions.
The horses will help you uncover your true feelings and request you to look at your authentic emotions – at what is lying at the core.

Quest is the journey of self-discovery and healing that you embark on when you join us during our multi-day retreats.

It also stands for the equestrian element – the horse, equus, that is essential for our retreats.

Equus

The horse (Equus ferus caballus) has been domesticated around 6,000 years ago.

A natural prey animal, they accept the predator homo sapiens on their backs.
This requires a huge level of trust.

Nevertheless, until today even horses who have been bred and raised around humans,

have never fully lost their wild instincts and are very much connected to nature.

We use them as a bridge in our retreats – a bridge that connects the very real here and now, the connection to earth and to our bodies, to the instinctive, spiritual world, to the unseen that can only be felt.

And they help us to make the unseen visible, to give understanding and meaning to our feelings, and to stay connected and grounded.

Empowering YOU!

Empower = make (someone) stronger and more confident, especially in controlling their life and claiming their rights.
