Independence Day High Country Camping Retreat July 3rd-7th 2024
Welcome to our Independence Day Horseback Riding and Horsemanship Retreat in the High Country of Nevada!
Do you want to deepen your connection with your horse and develop your horsemanship skills in a beautiful and challenging wilderness setting? If so, this retreat is for you.
Led by Cindy Hartzell, a horsemanship and personal development coach who specializes in helping women build their confidence as leaders for their horses, and Samantha Szesciorka, an expert in wilderness camping and riding, this retreat is designed to teach you the skills you need to camp and ride long distances in the wilderness and bond with your equine partner.
Our focus is on building a meaningful connection and partnership with your horse as their leader. We will teach you skills and practices to help you stay present and grounded for your horse, and recognize how your horse is handling the experience and what you can do to help them through it.
As their leader, it's up to us to help our horses adjust and know that they can count on us to protect and care for them. We will explore herd dynamics and the psychology and behavior of horses and humans.
Throughout the retreat, we will spend time going over horsemanship and wilderness riding, as well as going on mountain trail rides for at least three hours at a time.
You will learn powerful ways to enhance how you communicate with your equine and speak the language of the horse. You'll witness the transformation within the partnerships of all participating.
Our retreat is limited to six women and their horses. We ask that all participants be intermediate riders and able to spend at least three hours in the saddle at a time. Horse owners assume all responsibility for their horses.
The retreat dates are June 30th to July 5th, 2023. You can either camp out with your horse or stay in a bunkhouse with others. Please bring a first aid kit and bug repellent for both you and your horse, horse hay and feed, buckets for water, and hay as well as anything else you need to camp comfortably. We will provide water and electrolyte drinks, and you can bring any other beverages you want to drink. If you have food restrictions, please plan to bring your own meals to meet your needs.
Our clinic fee is $2997 if paid in full at time of registration, which includes continental breakfast, lunch, and buffet style dinner. To confirm your registration, payment is required, and there are no refunds less than 10 days in advance of the clinic.
