Indonesia Natural Horsemanship and Yoga Retreat

This is a very unique, empowering retreat for yoga and horse lovers. This retreat will balance your mind, body, and soul as you immerse yourself in the healing powers of yoga and horse work. Horses are both powerful and gentle. They are magnificent creatures that tend to mirror our own state of being. Therefore, working with horses is tremendously empowering and mind-opening. You do not have to be able to ride or have practiced yoga before. We just want you to have an open mind and a love of the outdoors to enjoy this beautiful empowering experience.

You will be staying at the new Havana Horses Lodge, built in one of our horse paddocks! This upcycled old Javanese house has a beautiful view; to the rear there are vast coffee plantations, and to the front there is our spacious horse paddock. From the verandahs you can relax and watch birds and squirrels in the trees and our horses roaming about in the paddock.

There are 2 bedrooms which can accommodate 4 people at a time for overnight stays, with bed & breakfast, and also lunch and dinner at our family's house can be booked. You have access to a private kitchen, a spacious living, and dining room.

There is a beautiful natural swimming pool to the front of the Lodge, perfect to unwind after a day with the horses. The Havana Horses Lodge is reserved for horse lovers throughout the year.

Riding style

Riders often are just a passenger and the horse is following the horse in front. Instead, we want the rider to be with the horse with every step, and the horse should be with the rider with every step, not following the other horses, but focusing on what the rider asks of him. It requires good leadership skills, and this is exactly what we teach at Havana Horses; starting with liberty and groundwork, and those leadership qualities we take with us when we are in the saddle.


Havana Horses is located in the authentic Javanese village Tegalwaton, close to Salatiga, is a small bustling City in Central Java. The city is known for its university and the fresh air of the mountainous area. We are 50 kilometers from the Prambanan Temple Complex and 60 kilometers from the lovely city of Yogyakarta.

To the west, we are 30 kilometers from Borobudur Temple Complex (the biggest Buddhist Temple in the world) and 15 kilometers to both Merapi and Merbabu where there are ample hiking or climbing paths and walkways for you to reach the Summit.
