Each morning horses are released from Sandalwood stables to gallop freely along the 2.5km beach and swim in the sea. It is a truly awesome sight and in 2021 NIHI is renewing the invitation to its guests to be part of the herd and develop a deeper connection with the horses and with themselves. The people of Sumba believe their soul is connected to the horse and the horse is “The Soul of Sumba.”

Horses are highly intelligent and majestic creatures and play an important role in Sumbanese culture and human therapy work worldwide.  They have been used for therapeutic purposes since the time of the ancient Greeks when Greek physician Hippocrates, known as the “Father of Medicine,” wrote about the therapeutic potential of horseback riding and where better to experience this than the wild beach of Nihiwatu.
