Manuela Stefan is an European born, Canadian photographic artist, with a passion for capturing the spirit of the horse and ranch culture on camera. Manuela's worldwide pursuit of the horse’s beauty initiated a profound soul connection with these gracious animals.

From being the greatest muse for Manuela's creative work, the horses became her teachers and healers. Manuela found herself at home amongst herds, while experiencing joy on unprecedented levels. This inspired her desire to invite other women to join her on very special soul searching adventures, surrounded by glorious nature and horses.

Manuela’s first retreat of choice was at Rancho Las Cascadas, a place she has visited for many years and fell in love with.

The success of this experience, followed by a few others in the Caribbean and Canada, is what makes Manuela so excited to return to the Rancho this year.

Manuela’s calming nature, intuitive guiding skills and ability to feel horses' energy create a very soothing space for her cherished guests’ inner experiences to unfold naturally, freely.

She very much looks forward to welcoming you in Mexico!
