WHAT WILL YOU GAIN FROM THIS EVENT? You’ll walk away with new customized riding skills for exactly what you need via the expert coaching of Sandy and Barb. 

You will do this on horses provided by the Red Cliff Lodge Ranch (no worries, the arena horses are VERY responsive). You will have the opportunity to ride in the arena with Sandy and with Barbra. Cattle will be available if you want to work them. Plus, if you like, you may bring your own horse for the arena sessions. In addition, you’ll gain the CONFIDENCE & CL&RITY you need to play bigger and finally make great strides in your riding life ... and in your focus and calmness by digging deep into mental skills for riding, and ways to grow personally because of your riding. We will delve into both of these on and off of a horse.

Hi! Barb and Sandy here ...  

Last year we did our first retreat in Moab. We along with those who came, experienced one to the most exciting and meaningful events of our lifetimes.  

We are excited to offer this same MAGICAL experience again in the Canyonlands of Utah!  

Since the time we can remember, we have loved ... to ride, learn, coach and be in GORGEOUS places.  

There is nothing that we've ever done in our careers that has been more impactful than this retreat experience. 

There's also nothing in our industry that we've ever seen like this either ... considering the combination of arena time with the two of us, the option to work cattle, time to explore the joy of our individual riding lives, time to relax and time on the trail!  

Plus, we want to BUILD UPON WHAT YOU ALREADY KNOW ... and ... TEACH YOU ALL of our special insights so you can:

These horses have had ... and continue to have, working cow horse and/or roping training. They will be fun to ride. If you like, you may bring your own horse for arena work.

Frequently Asked Questions

May I bring a friend or a spouse?  

YES! You may bring your husband or a friend to this women's retreat. Here's how that works. A friend or significant other who comes with you, but who is not registered for the retreat may eat meals with us (for a meal fee) and be with us during a social time prior to dinner. He or she is welcome to participate in activities offered by the lodge on their own during the day, or explore the area. If you do come with someone else, you may want to consider coming a day or so early, or staying a day or two later to take advantage of the area.  

Will you help me find a roommate if I want to share a room ... or share a ride, or rent car from the airport?  

YES! Just let us know what you need and from time to time we will send an email out to those who have registered asking if anyone wants to share. We will connect you, and then the two of you will make the arrangements.​​​​​​​  

If I can't ride (for any number of reasons) or if I only ride a little bit, would this event still be for me?  

Absolutely. We will spend a lot of time being together before and after meals, during classroom sessions and during "free" times. If you can't ride at the moment, you may still learn by participating in the non-riding sessions, sharing your story, hopes and dreams, and observing Sandy and Barb teaching. And ask questions. Plus you are welcome to tour the fabulous countryside.  

Will this event address grief and loss?  

As you may know this is a subject that is very dear to our hearts. We will have a special segment during one of the afternoon "free" times to share the stories of our loved ones and support each other.
