What previous retreat clients had to say:

“When I booked Manuela’s retreat in Mexico: “Horses, elixir for the soul”, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Manuela has a thing with horses, I can’t explain it, it’s like she can look into their souls. She’s also able to capture beautiful moments and horses’ expressions on camera. So I had no doubt this retreat would be wonderful.

Manuela helped us to connect with the horses on a deeper level, which allowed us to open our heart and soul. Horses are so gentle and understanding.

And during all these activities, Manuela captured the beautiful moments on camera. She put the best pictures together in a coffee table book, which is included in the retreat package. This way we receive an artistic and unforgettable memory of our experience!

I would recommend Manuela’s retreat to every horse lover. Horses are these majestic creatures, they can really help us deal with our feelings and emotions. And Manuela is the perfect person to guide you through this.

 I feel blessed that I was able to participate and I will definitely participate in lots more!!!! “
