Good news

Thank you, donators, sponsors and lenders for your support. We manage to raise the needed funds, so we could finally give the horses an official home for many years to come.

Rescued horses

We keep rescued horses and give them a second chance in life after being abused and maltreated severely on the road by pulling carts. And we invite people to come and experience their magnificent beauty and strength and pure bliss.

Keeping and Being with horses is an amazing experience. Now we offer you the chance to experience what we experience on a daily basis.

Join us for a short walk of 2 hour through the beautiful area of Barão de São João or step into real adventure with our 1, 3, 5 or 7 day HorseJourneys by foot @

The State of Being project started in 2014. Going back a natural way of living close to and with nature was the idea. To learn thyself. Within a month there was this 2,5 year young horse, Flame, that was rescued from slaughter. And so this journey of learning, falling, getting up and getting wise began, until the moment where we are now.

One horse became five horses and the activities, like our daily HorseWalks with guests, got enriched with 1, 3, 5 or 7 day journeys’ on foot with a horse by your side. Beautiful walks through unspoiled wilderness in the wild South-West Algarve, Portugal. You can read all about it on our website, dedicated to the HorseWalks and the HorseJourneys.
