Retreats and Workshops
We get it, sitting in a therapy office can be daunting. You might feel a little nervous at first, not sure what to say or where to even start. But picture the scenario with a purring cat in your lap, reassured by the unconditionally loving deep brown eyes of a dog as she lays her head on your knee. Or maybe the office isn't for you at all. Nothing like the company of goats, pigs, and mini sheep in the petting zoon to ease the tension! Looking for an even more impactful interaction? Then spend your session with our 1000lb therapists. Horses are like mirrors to your soul. They sense and react to your thoughts and feelings. They offer opportunities to develop new insights and challenge self-limiting beliefs. They can touch your heart.
Isn't it worth giving it a try? Maybe now is the time to reach out, to try something different. Perhaps today is the day you take the step that changes your life.
Need Relationship or Family Counseling?
Time spent out on the ranch with the horses offers a unique experience. Working together with the horses, communication skills improve, while destructive patterns become recognizable and new ways of relating can be explored. LGBTQ couples are welcome.

The Equine Therapy approach is a unique journey that opens up awareness, understanding and lasting change. Horses can be powerful teachers who give us gentle, detailed insights into our life through their willing interaction. Start excelling with Equine-assisted therapy by shifting old perceptions and gaining new insights. Come enjoy a weekend focused on you! A truly unique, weekend ranch retreat offers a personal growth experience. Learn about yourself in an outdoor classroom with beautiful horses! These gentle mentors are masters at helping you gain valuable insights. All retreats will have a personal growth focus and may or may not involve riding horses depending on the type of retreat. No horse experience is necessary for any of our events. Evenings are spent around the campfire sharing insights, laughter, and s'mores. Learn about yourself by challenging yourself in a supportive and caring environment. You deserve this opportunity to unbridle your potential.
Retreats vary in intensity. Cowgirl University is lighthearted and fun, Cowgirl Spirit adds a deeper level of introspection while still having an adventuresome twist, and the Empowerment Retreats are more intense and don't include riding horses. Have a group of 6 or more? Call us for a custom retreat! Great for family reunions, team building, or just a unique getaway.
You don’t need any experience with horses. Even if you’ve never been close to a horse before, you will be profoundly touched by our four-legged therapists and supported by caring and capable staff.
Adaptive and Therapeutic Riding Services
Designed to increase confidence, develop communication, and improve relationship skills, therapeutic riding is far more than a riding lesson. This practice is also extremely effective for managing ADHD symptoms, Autism, and TBI. Horses provide immediate feedback to the rider, allowing them to develop and practice skills that transfer to their day-to-day life.
Adaptive riding allows those with disabilities to experience motion and movement while building confidence, core strength and balance. The riding experience takes place in the capable hands of trained sidewalkers to keep them stable and safe.
