Who do we serve?

Women working in healthcare that want to renew their health, psyche, and spirit!

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!


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!

  • Yoga wear.
  • Boots preferably with a heel, to prevent your foot from slipping through your stirrups.
  • Jeans or riding pants.
  • Long and short sleeved shirts. Tank tops if desired for the hotter weather.
  • Jacket, vest or sweatshirt for layering. A heavier jacket is recommended for the morning and evenings 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.

  • We will have western clothing and ball caps, etc. for sale in our Sawmill Canyon Trading Post.




Ride. Relax. Renew.

As a healthcare provider with almost 10 years of experience in the field I am all too familiar with the demanding nature of the work. Though, it is truly an honor to serve patients, our conscientious and highly committed personalities often add another layer of stress. I wholeheartedly believe that to best serve others we must first take care of ourselves. 

I am a Certified Physician Assistant (PA-C). I have a Master’s degree in Physician Assistant Studies from Rocky Mountain College as well as a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biology, with a Minor in Psychology. As a Physician Assistant I am licensed to practice medicine under the supervision of a physician. I am able to medically evaluate, diagnose, and develop treatment plans for patients as well as prescribe medications, and perform clinical procedures. In addition to my medical experience, I am actively working on my Yoga instructor’s certification.

I have worked in family medicine with a large emphasis in psychiatric illness, student health, and in PA education. Throughout my career I have gained a wide range of experience with mental illness, and have watched colleagues, beloved healthcare professionals, and some of the best physicians succumb to caregiver fatigue and burn-out. It is time to start empowering our healthcare professionals to practice self-compassion, and to INVEST IN THEMSELVES!!

I am incredibly excited and honored to be a part of the Horses N Courage Ride. Relax. Renew. Retreat for Women Working in Healthcare, and women wanting to promote well-being and vitality in their life! Having experienced a retreat first hand, I can honestly say it is life changing! My physical and emotional health has significantly improved, my drive and commitment to my career has been restored, and I am simply a better PA, mom, and person because of it. The mountains, the horses, the accommodations, the people are truly unforgettable! We would be thrilled to have you join us this summer and make an investment in your health and well-being, your career and family, and an investment in yourself!
