Horsewomen, Women's Quest Horse campWomen’s Quest Horsewomanship Retreat

You are invited to join us for the BEST, most special adventure

at Peaceful Valley Ranch

August 11-15, 2014, Peaceful Valley, Colorado

What to Expect at the Horse Camp Adventure Vacation:

Wake to a purple mountain sunrise in your cozy chalet beside the St. Vrain River, and take in the peaceful outdoors from the large picture window in the main room, or mosey on out to the second floor deck overlooking our private pond.

We start each day with a yoga session, to ground our bodies and minds, and prepare to encounter our horses with open hearts.

Each day we’ll enjoy Natural HorseWomanship lessons in the indoor and outdoor arenas, becoming true partners with our horses.

We’ll ride every day in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, along streams, through high alpine forests and meadows full of late blooming wildflowers.

Hearty gourmet meals will be prepared per our specifications in our own private dining lodge, and one evening, we’ll take a hayride up to a splendid peak, and have a chuck wagon dinner overlooking the Continental Divide.

We’ll have plenty of free time ( not really as we have so many fun things planned) for hiking in the surrounding natural splendor, curling up with a good book, soaking in the hot tub, swimming in the property’s indoor pool, journaling, getting to know our new girlfriends, and indulging in facials and massage. But if you prefer alone time, that’s fine as you can keep going or take a break -up to you.
