Healing with Horses

The Tula Vida horse and human team are offering this special retreat to support you in a resetting and rebalancing of your mind, body and spirit after the challenges of the past year.


Not only will you have experiences with Tula Vida’s extraordinary horses in their vibrant, green rainforest home but you will also get to share some fun and relaxing beach time with horse-friends on the glorious Costa Rica coast!  A real sensory delight and a chance to soak in all the healing nature has to offer in these beautiful places....

Renew your mind, body and spirit!

Just like a computer, sometimes we have to “switch off and on again” to start working better!  Let the vibrant nature surrounding Tula Vida soothe, nourish and restore you.  Rediscover your peace, vitality and sense of self.  Remember what real connection feels like.

Tula Vida horses live in a state of relaxed alertness, fully connected to their herd, free to play, rest and be fully themselves.  Imagine if we lived like this.

- 3 days at Tula Vida, Lake Arenal - 


In the first 3 days of this healing retreat you will join our extraordinary horses in their home - the vibrant green fields, rivers and rainforest near the Arenal volcano in Costa Rica – and experience becoming part of the herd, fully connected to yourself, the horses and the natural world.

  • Join us and become part of the herd, feeling what it is like to be totally accepted, just as you are.

  • Explore creating relationship and connection with a sensitive being who has 56 million years of wisdom living together in harmony with his herd, his environment and the constantly changing world, able to process and let go of his emotions, release stress as it arises and get back into balance.

  • Learn tangible take-home tools to take this feeling back into your own life.

  • Cherish and nourish your body with healthy food, gentle movement designed to get your energy flowing, beautiful natural surroundings, restorative wood-fire sauna and healing massage. 

  • Feel your energy and sesne of self expand as you start to feel more of what you want to feel.

- 3 days at the beach, Guanacaste Coast - 

(Riding optional)

Many of us have spent the last year surviving rather than thriving.  Nature continues to grow and flourish in its magnificence and is the ideal place for us to calm our spirits and soothe our bodies and minds. 

In these fun-filled few days in the second half of the week, we will go to the beach and enjoy sun-soaked experiences and views with the horses.  Riding is offered but not a requirement. If you choose to not ride there will be other ground activities offered- with horses or without!

  • Learn tangible take-home tools to balance your nervous system and restore your sense of energy and peace, and fine-tune these with the horses.

  • Spot monkeys with your warm and funny naturalist guide, Enrique Molina, as you enjoy a delicious beach picnic as your horse relaxes and rolls in the sand nearby.

  • Rest, relax, recharge and find joy on this sensory adventure of horses!

Our mission is to provide a deeper connection with self, through horses, nature and experience.
