Rustic Rocky Mountain Women’s Retreat

Join us for a rustic retreat aimed at developing equine connections and communication and conquering barriers within yourself .

Let us guide you in an unforgettable journey of discovery with a faithful and willing equine friend. Experience the power of body language, increase your confidence, and build leadership skills with clinicians who have devoted their life to the art of understanding the horse.

Be prepared to challenge yourself. We are as passionate about people as we are about horses. Expect to leave with a new appreciation of horses and of yourself.

Delicious and nutritious homemade meals served with love by our one-of-a-kind “Cookie”, a breathtaking mountain location, and laugh out loud moments of pure joy will create meaniful memories to last a lifetime.

Absolutely no experience with horses necessary!
