My name is Sakshin and ever since I was a child I wanted a horse. Finally, after 50 years, I got one! Rescued from slaughter. Very soon I got another one. Horses are meant to live together. Since last summer I said yes to an orphan foal, another foal and his mother, all rescued from horrible circumstances by a great organization closeby. It was quite the challenge since I had never even seen a foal up close before. It's a joy to be with them and I am so happy that I said 'YES' - I love saying YES it's kind of my philosophy.
I would love more people to experience the magic of being surrounded by horses and get more grounded in themselves, therefore I started to organize holistic horsewalks. Horses are mirrors of the soul and reflect our state of being. These animals are soo powerful and magical. Ooo and the foals they are soo heartwarming and cute.
We would love your help with taking care of the horses (and their poo ;) ) other things we like your assistance or expertise on are building and starting a vegetable garden.
It's not a necessity to have experiences with horses (although we do love that). It is a necessity that you are willing and open to learn about horses. (saying YES ;) )
Open for people who want to help develop the land and animals (3 horses, 2 foals, 1 doggy and 1 cool cat) in the west of the Sunny Algarve. Close to Barao de Sao Joao and Zoo Lagos. Public transport stops nearby and we are 5 km from the beaches and a 10 minutes walk from the quaint village where you can get all that you need. We offer beautiful horse walks with rescued horses, which you are also welcome to join. The walks get amazing feedback from people spending such quality time with these beautiful, gentle creatures.
