Costa Rica ~ October 4 – 7, 2019

Rafael Arena, La Fortuna, San Carlos













 The 2019 My Horses My Healers (MHMH) Summit will be held in the beautiful Costa Rican rain forest at the foot of the majestic Arenal Volcano. As in previous years, we will be a gathering of professionals and horse enthusiasts from many parts of the globe, including Europe, Central America, the United States and Australia.

The Summit welcomes equine facilitated learning (EFL) practitioners, therapists, horsemen/women of all disciplines and those interested in the area of equine therapies and recipients of EFL therapies.


The location of the Summit (the La Fortuna, Arenal Volcano area) was voted the #1 destination in the world for vacation activities and adventure by Trip Advisor in 2018! You can easily extend your stay in Costa Rica to also enjoy the rain forest, ziplines, volcano, hiking, hanging bridges, white water rafting and of course horseback riding at Leaves and Lizards Retreat!
