Join us for a week of horse play! There is just nothing like the bond that develops between girls and horses. It’s an experience, a connection like no other and they teach us so much in the process.  Ideal for girls aged 10-14 years old.

This program allows girls to get up close and personal with our horses.  They’ll teach girls to build trust and confidence, develop new communication skills and self awareness, and experience first hand how our horses respond and embrace them as part of their herd.  Each day we will have new and exciting exercises that will have you working with our horses through obstacles and problem solving exercises that will build on the last, promoting learning, self discovery and a unique horse experience that will create life long lessons.  

Through participation in our Equine Leadership Retreat, girls will learn to:

  • Make choices and take actions based on courage and awareness verses automatic, ‘learned’ responses.
  • Build trust in relationships and teams.
  • Develop skills to work through uncomfortable, emotionally charged situations.
  • Move from conflict into resolution and agreement more quickly.
  • Face fears and learn new behaviours to gain personal power and respect.
  • Experience breakthroughs that increase the depth of Emotional Intelligence.
  • Expand cohesiveness and productivity within teams and partnerships.

Our program creates experiences to inspire girls to reach their full potential and provide the leadership skills to help them overcome challenges to cope with the pressures they face today and in the years ahead. Partnered with a horse, girls are encouraged to be creative, innovative, accept responsibility and be accountable.  Through effective communication, girls recognize the value of mutual trust, respect and personal integrity to help guide them in their every day life.  The end result is girls discovering ways to overcome barriers and achieve objectives, while developing self awareness and solid relationships.

Leadership skills we’ll be teaching include:

  • Appropriate assertiveness
  • Building healthy relationships
  • Confidence & self esteem
  • Creativity & adaptability
  • Goal setting
  • Leadership & team building
  • Listening skills
  • Negotiation
  • Problem solving
  • Respect & trust
  • Responsibility
  • Self control
  • Communication

Camp Activities:

Our equine camp will also include art and movement activities.  We’ll being holding yoga classes, introduce meditation, and explore the farm and trails on the property, and maybe even a water fight or two…  Art projects include making a journal, a dream board, and an inspirational canvas painting.  Each day will also include games for creating rapport, communication, and just plain fun.  

The horse activities will be guided experiences, each with a leadership concept being taught throughout.  Some activities will be on the ground, others on the horse, but no experience is necessary.  No matter what your experience with horses, you will be asked to try something new, while staying safe.   No horse experience necessary.
