We are a non-profit association whose mission consists in:
the provision of Equine assisted interventions, Self-development and Complementary Psychological Therapies promoting personal well being as well as teaching and research in the mentioned areas and the Protection and dissemination of equine.
Our project was the pioneer in Portugal in Equine Assisted Interventions. It is an innovative and quiet space where we hold sessions of Psychotherapy, Self-development, Coaching and Learning. Our customer is the main element and they are supported by a human and equine specialist team throughout their journey.
We also provide training on Equine Assisted Interventions. Our customers come here and join with enthusiasm the opportunity to grow and to enrich themselves with the help of this beautiful animal. In our approach, there is no need to ride, all the work is done on the ground, which allows all the public to have the privilege to benefit inner development, in interaction with the Iberian horses (Lusitanians, Garranos and Sorraias) that stand out for millennia for its unique traits, including nobility, skills and emotional intelligence. We act daily as a therapeutic space with horses and receive people individually or groups such as couples, families or companies.
