The project has 3 main objectives: auto-sustainability & organic agriculture, horse shelter and a future therapy center. We are a family with a 3 years old child, we would really love to have an exchange with other families!
We are located at about 4000 meters high, which means that everything is much more intense. Acclamation of beforehand in Puno is obligatory. Physical and mental strength is needed in this place. During the day the sun can be very strong but once the it goes down it gets very cold! We need help from people with discipline, willing to work and with a sense of responsibility.
Auto-sustainability & organic agriculture
Being already independent on water and electricity, we aspire to be 90% independent on food by the next 5 years. We have a lot of land where can cultivate fruit and veggies from the region. We also find it very important to cultivate organic.
We currently have eleven horses and two dogs. With our shelter we want to provide a safe space for our horses, a place where they can live as natural as possible. We are an animal shelter; we do not ride our horses. We mainly do ground work and would like to prepare our horses to be able to work with children and help in therapy.
Future therapy center
In the future we would like to create a special space for meditation, yoga, therapy, traditional Aymara ceremonies and earth offerings.
We want to build a “temple” up in the mountain. We would also like to offer animal therapy and animal connection.
Our vision is to connect people with horses in a different way; a relationship based on respect, trust and without violence. We also want to create a place where children can come play and families can enjoy the landscape. At the moment we host a workshop once a month with teenagers around the horses and animal therapy.
