Awesome, really awesome: I became one with the heard, totally relaxed and somehow powerful inside myself. This great feeling still lasts. To be with horses like this, you should not miss.
it was just a 5 min drive from Bensafrim, A22, Lagos to Barão de São João. Before going for a walk, we were allowed to follow Sakshin to the herd, to get in touch with the horses step by step. We became all so calm and relaxed, and as the first horse lay down, an other guest set net down to this horse. Just a few minutes later I took this picture here, showing a mixed group of horses and humans, like meditating or relaxing and breathing deeply. Awesome. After about 40 minutes we went for the booked walk, which was also a wonderful experience. The horses, rescued horses, are full of trust and show so much happy energy while they could run around complete free at the place we walked to. And they came back with us on their own will.
For me it was a great experience, the "top" of my Algarve vacation. Good to know, that the money I payed goes directly tho this horse sanctuary.
