This weekend is WAY more than your average clinic
Time to Ride!
Are you ready for a weekend with your horse? You will get hours of riding instruction, including unmounted activities, some lecture, and hours in the saddle riding in a small group (a maximum of 10 participants) with individualized instruction, there are no auditors or audience to critique your every move, just you, your horse, the earth & sky! The small group offers the best situation for discussion both on & off your horse, and you’ll meet other people looking to learn the same things you are. So there will be great discussions too!
The retreat cost includes your clinic fee, lodging accommodations for you & your horse, meals, horsemanship instruction, yoga classes, guided discussions, & memories to last!
do you want to be a cowgirl?
Requirements to participate in this Cowgirl Retreat are pretty simple, you have to want to be a cowgirl!! Heck you don’t even have to be flexible or athletic! But you will need a steady mount. Your horse must be trail friendly, and you must be comfortable riding in a group at a walk & a trot without an arena, over uneven terrain. Most retreats offer horses available to rent!
These retreats are geared toward the avid rider, if you are not currently riding regularly let’s talk & see if it would be a good weekend for you. Most of our horsemanship work throughout the weekend will be in open areas or out on the trail, just like the cowgirls do it. A full packing list will be provided after you are enrolled for the retreat.
retreat format is special
These are my favorite retreat/clinic of the year! I really get a chance to get to know the participants & help them individually. I always get amazing feedback of the accomplishments & friendships that ladies have made during & following the retreat. The weekend includes unmounted stretching & grounding activities, a clinic style horsemanship-on-the-trail instruction where we will talk about finding balance & breathing and how it relates to our seat & neutral pelvis while riding, wonderful meals prepared for us & nightly discussions by the fire about expectations, goals & body awareness.
