Hope, Courage and Healing Retreat for Women
July 6-9, 2017
This Women’s Retreat and it will be the most unique retreat you will ever experience!
Imagine yourself at a guest ranch in the mountains of Montana, riding horseback, trailing cattle, seeing wildlife, sleeping in wall tents, eating ranch cooked meals in the outdoor dining room under the stars, getting to know new friends sitting around a campfire at night.
Now imagine yourself, among a group of like-minded women, who, like you, are eager to explore past experiences and emotional distress that has inhibited their ability to live their lives as fully as they would like.
At Horses N Courage we bring the two together for a phenomenal 4 days and 3 nights in an experience that is so unique and healing it will change your life. There is really nothing better than staying under Montana’s Big Sky, experiencing the healing power of horses and nature, supported by other women and facilitators who will embrace your experiences and help you get out of the pattern of self-defeat. We provide compassionate challenges and tools to help you move through the obstacles that are preventing you from being all you can be.
This retreat is all inclusive and includes luxury camping tent accommodations, ranch-style cooked meals, beautiful scenery, horseback riding, and a chance to see wildlife, photography opportunities, dummy roping and a soak in a natural hot spring spa to empower the Mind, Body and Spirit.
Fee: $1,195 (women only)
Convenience/processing fee: We charge an extra $10 per person for PayPal and Square. With our Square reader we can accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.

Who do we serve?
Any women wanting to bring back joy, hope and unlimited possibility in their life.
We are located at approximately 3000 feet. Mornings tend to be cool and temperatures increase through the day and then cool down again at night, so dressing in layers is recommended. Closed shoes – no sandals when riding!
WHAT TO BRING
You’ll want to pack clothes that are easily layered as weather can be unpredictable and temperatures can go from cool to quite warm in a single day. Especially if it rains!
- Boots with a heel to prevent your foot from slipping through your stirrups and without laces so that your boot will easily come off in case your foot would become caught in the stirrup.
- Jeans or riding pants.
- Long and short sleeved shirts. Tank tops if desired.
- Jacket, vest or sweatshirt for layering. A heavier jacket is recommended for the morning and eveings in June and September dates.
- Hats, caps and sunglasses are nice to keep the sun out of your eyes and off your face. Cowboy hats need a stampede string (for sale in our Sawmill Canyon Trading Post (if needed).
- Casual clothes for non-riding time. Can get hot during the days.
- Gloves, chaps helmet and rain gear are optional. Slickers are available for use for the week. Sunscreen and chapstick.
- A camera and/or compact binoculars!
- Prescription medications.
- If you wear a helmet when riding, please bring your own.
- We will have western clothing and ball caps, etc. for sale in our Sawmill Canyon Trading Post.
We are a rustic guest ranch. You will be staying in our wall tent accomodations, that sleep 3.
Luxury Camping Tents: Our clean, cozy wall tents, sleeps 3 adults comfortably, but 2 is better. They are furnished with cots, sleeping bags, sleeping bag liners, extra blankets, throw rug, lantern, lawn chair, small table and a wash bowl. The clean, old fashioned out house toilet is a short walk from your tent.
Shower: Our large, outdoor shower is a wood sided, self- standing little structure with propane heated water. It sets behind camp, facing the aspen trees, ensuring that you have the utmost privacy!
** Smoking: Is not allowed in the tents or while out riding.
There is no cell phone coverage or WIFI on the ranch — enjoy the time to unplug and heal!
A favorite poem
She Let Go
She let go. Without a thought or a word, she let go.
She let go of fear. She let go of the judgments.
She let go of the confluence of opinions swarming around her head.
She let go of the committee of indecision within her.
She let go of all the ‘right’ reasons. Wholly and completely,
without hesitation or worry, she just let go.
She didn’t ask anyone for advice. She didn’t read a
book on how to let go… She didn’t search the scriptures.
She just let go.
She let go of all of the memories that held her back.
She let go of all of the anxiety that kept her from moving forward.
She let go of the planning and all of the calculations about how to do it just right.
She didn’t promise to let go.
She didn’t journal about it.
She didn’t write the projected date in her day-timer.
She made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper.
She didn’t check the weather report or read her daily horoscope.
She just let go.
She didn’t analyze whether she should let go.
She didn’t call her friends to discuss the matter.
She didn’t do a five-step Spiritual Mind Treatment.
She didn’t call the prayer line.
She didn’t utter one word. She just let go.
No one was around when it happened.
There was no applause or congratulations.
No one thanked her or praised her.
No one noticed a thing.
Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go.
There was no effort. There was no struggle.
It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad.
It was what it was, and it is just that.
In the space of letting go, she let it all be.
A small smile came over her face.
A light breeze blew through her.
And the sun and the moon shone forevermore.
