"enlightening equine break"
I expected a standard riding holiday but this was totally different. Mia is clearly an amazing horsewoman but is also looking at clients as people and helping with their life skills.

"Fantastic ridning holiday"
I had a Fantastic holiday. Mia was an excellent instructor, both as a riding instructor and as mental coach. I spent many hours with her horses ,both riding and working from the ground. I also got to ride passage and spanish walk.
I feel that I improved my riding a lot.
The horses where very welltrained and very lovely to handle.
The food was excellent as well as the accomodation.
I can really recommend this riding holiday and hope I can get back some day.

"An escape into yourself "
Mia is so much more than a horse trainer. She organized the perfect experience for me and my 9y old daughter. She offered wisdom and guidance into our lives all while effortlessly making delicious food and a relaxing vacation. Her house is pristine, nestled in the gorgeous hills and only a five minute walk from the horse stable. Whether you are coming to Mia for dressage lessons, meditation, healthy food, parenting lessons, or an escape you will find exactly what you need.

"Insightful and Revitalizing"
The experience was beyond horse riding. It was a universe orchestrated encounter on the journey of the unfoldment of true self. Mia is an angel who is very intuitive and acts as a vehicle for insights. The horse riding served as an outlet to exercise life lessons.

"A unique experience"
This trip turned out to be so much more than we expected! We had a private room and the instructor Mia adapted to our schedule and what we were interested in. The site is absolutely amazing - you even hear peacocks in the mountain! The horses were amazingly adorable, soft and sweet even - very safe for kids.
Mia teaches dressage approach considering the person's energy and personnality. We felt we got closer to the horses every day. All my fears are gone! Thank you so much for this wonderful vacation.

"Fantastic riding holiday "
An extraordinary experience with very professional training, not only to improve my riding skill but also know myself better. Mia is a very experienced trainer who know everything about horse riding and horse training inside out.
I, together with my friend, are very grateful to be able to get trained here and have enjoyed the very peaceful environment. The horses are very well trained and intelligent. Accommodation is cosy.
We wish to extend our big thank you to Mia because she has prepared very delicious Asian meals (Sushi, stir-fried rice noodles and rice) especially for us. She is also a very good host just to ensure every guests in her place stay happy (e.g. help searching/ booking of the authentic flamenco show nearby) and have fun.
This is the place you definitely want to visit if you love horses, want to improve your skills from riding to ground work. I have no hesitation to recommend this to my friends and hope can come back very soon.

Working with horses on the ground was new to me and I found this experience very rewarding. I loved learning about natural horsemanship methods, the seven games and how horses live in the wild. Working with Mia and the horses also gave me great insight to my own strengths and weaknesses and how I interact with other people. It was quite a journey over four days! Food was fantastic and Mia was very accommodating taking me into Malaga and Torremolinos when I fancied a change of scene. My horse riding has improved tremendously after spending such a short period of time with Mia. The smallest of adjustments have made all the difference.

Ich habe die 5 Tage in Malaga mit Mia sehr genossen! Es war eine perfekte Mischung aus Entspannung und Spaß. Mia ist sehr flexibel und man kann mit ihr individuell den Ablauf des Urlaubs sowie die Aktivitäten (zB mehr Yoga als Reiten oder vice versa) besprechen.
Der Ort ist auch sehr schön, hat viele Restaurants und Bars und einen tollen Strand. Die Arbeit mit den Pferden von Mia ist sehr angenehm und lehrreich und konzentriert sich vor allem auf die Kommunikation, was man auch allgemein im Leben anwenden kann.
Mein absolutes Highlight war der Strandritt bei Sonnenaufgang. Alles in allem ein sehr gelungener Urlaub und wirklich empfehlenswert!
