A 3-day retreat for equine guided facilitators and practitioners
that are looking to grow and expand their equine practice.

October 12-14 2018


Are you an equine facilitator or practitioner that is struggling in the vision and sustainability of your business?


Do you struggle with getting clients in your practice or feeling confident about offering your services?

Are you unclear about what makes you unique in this industry and feeling like you have something different to offer?

Then come join me for 3 days as we dive into the bones of our equine practice, how to build and sustain it, and how to feel confident about our unique voices and facilitation of what we do with our horse partners.


10 years ago I first did my training in the field of equine experiential learning.

I spent 3 years doing multiple trainings and certifications driven by my passion and love for horses.

For 5 years I really struggled with building a business around my passion, how to support my growing herd of horses and retreat center and how to feel confident in what I was facilitating with my clients.

Presently my practice is run out of an 80-acre retreat ranch I run and own with my magnificent herd of 19 wise equine teachers, where people come from all over the world to experience the work I do with these amazing animals, and my business that I have built around this passion and purpose has grown to six figures.

We often don’t receive training in our vision of this work or how to build a business that is going to support and empower our love of partnering with horses.

Building a business takes time and it takes clarity and a knowing of having a vision of not just of our work but how our business needs to be built and formed.


In this 3-day retreat, with the support of my own team of equine teachers, we are going to dive into:


  • How to build a business model that empowers our work with the horses.

  • Identifying what is unique about what we do with horses, what our voice and mission is that stands apart from what is out there.

  • Clarifying our messaging and who we are serving, so that it fulfills both our passion in this work and the reality of having a business that supports it.

  • Creating clarity of our programs, what offerings are currently in place and what needs to be built in that speaks to our model and also the uniqueness of what we feel called to do.

  • Deepening of our connection and realignment of purpose to this incredible work with the horses.


The days in the retreat will unfold with a blending of mentorship and coaching from myself with time with the herd for further affirmation and solidifying of our time together.


You will walk away from this retreat WITH...


  • Clarity about where the shifts need to happen in your business and what it looks like to implement it.

  • A deeper knowing and understanding of your unique messaging and gifts that you bring to the work.

  • Clarity on your ideal client and 2-3 offerings that you feel really aligned and confident about going out and sharing with them.

  • Reinspired and confident about your ability to really take your practice and business to the next level.

  • An action plan on how to market, speak to and share about your work with the horses that will land and resonate with your clients.

  • Confident in your ability to carry out your vision, feeling solid in your faclitation, understanding of your strength as a leader in this work and how to continue to step into that beyond our time with the retreat.

  • 4-night stay at the ranch
  • Fully catered meals

  • Access to my 3-month Equine Guided Mentorship Program which includes lifetime inclusion in a private community of other facilitators

  • One 90-minute private session with me

  • 2 weeks post retreat support for further integration of the material

  • 3 full days of facilitation with myself and the herd

This retreat is perfect for those that have just finished training and are looking now as to how to build a business around this partnership with horses. These are all the things I wish I knew coming out of training.

Or for those that have been in the field for a few years and are feeling stalled about how to move their business forward. If you have not been able to create any sustainability or income in your practice and you want to change that this retreat is perfect for you.

She lives on a beautiful 80-acre ranch with her herd of  19 rescue and retired horses that are her partners and co-facilitators in this incredible work.

Hillary has experience in both private retreats along with leadership and corporate development alongside her equine partners. She is well-versed in both the development of our craft with horses and building the business that sustains it.  

One of her greatest passions and belief is the power of this work and her desire to empower as many other equine facilitators as possible in the success of their own vision and holding of this increidable partnership with horses.
