Mindfulness with horses

Horses live entirely in the present, and so they are a living study in mindfulness.
Their ability to be in the moment without judgement allows them to pick up on our subtle body language signals and emotions. Horses often mirror our feelings , and when we show stress, nervousness or strong emotions, they tend to show the same. This unbiased feedback from the horse gives us the opportunity to see ourselves better and challenges us to look inwards, explore ourselves, and ask ourselves: what is alive in me now, in this moment?

Surfen & Yoga

More than 300 days of sunshine a year, countless beaches and reef breaks and super waves all year round - no wonder that surfing on Fuerteventura is part of the lifestyle. If you love sun, beach and sea and can't wait to feel the salt water on your skin, then this is the place for you. Surfing, bodyboarding, stand up padel and carver courses, and to balance them out we offer evening yoga sessions. Yoga is a philosophical teaching whose holistic approach is designed to bring body, mind and soul into harmony. Our yoga offerings vary from Hata, to Vinyasa and Aerial Yoga, and we also offer yoga with mini goats at times. Please check our current offers for more information.

The animals are our stars

  • Finca.jpg
Our typical and cosy finca is completely restored. The beach and the fishing village are 10 minutes away on foot. Sea views and fantastic sunsets from all rooms.

The location and the sea view, the tranquility and the many animals on the finca make the holiday a great experience. The house offers space for 4 people with its 2 bedrooms.

Our guests have free access to all facilities of the finca. The animals (horses, donkeys, ponies, etc.) can also be fed and petted. Please ride after the appointment.

Guests use the house alone during their stay. I live in El Cotillo, but can be reached by phone at any time. There are 2 holiday homes on the large property.

Help animals with a sponsorship

Tara Animal Rescue Farm is mainly financed by our programme "Mindfulness with horses" and by the support of our sponsors - donations are invested in feeding the animals, the farrier and the vet!

Become a sponsor - we will be happy to inform you!

Our four-legged, and also three-legged goat Flakes, say thank you very much.

Together we are never alone!

We are easy to find:

On the road to El Cotillo, leave El Roque on the right and Granja Tara is on the left, next to the old mill, which is easy to see. At the small crossroads, just before the end of the village, follow the natural path towards the mill. Do not miss our sign.
