What is horse intuition?
Working with horses is like looking at your self through a mirror. This is one space where no judgment shows up and instead we are faced with the true essence of what lies within. Horses will very quickly show us exactly what is going on inside and tend to have a no tolerance policy for lies, deceit and masks. They are the most powerful teachers when it comes to intuitive connection, manifesting and transformation.
Horses are naturally sensitive, intuitive and attuned to the deeper tones of intent and energy that walks into the space. These big beautiful animals bring us naturally to a deeper place within ourselves, carrying a medicine that reminds us of who we are, connects us back to our own courage and clarity, and gives us a pure and unfiltered connection to what we are needing to create transformation.
Horses are intuitive by nature… Prey animals whose high sensitivity serves them in survival, horses are reading us in a place of energy, intent and responding to us based on how they are reading us.
Many of the times intuition feels intangible, it feels elusive, airy and sometimes challenging for us to discern if it s truly intuition that is speaking to us.
When we enter into the space of the horses we are getting instant and pure feedback in the moment, mirroring to us when we are holding an intuitive thought as opposed to a thought that is coming from ego and mind.
They do this by communicating with us non-verbally, which as part of the retreat we will be teaching you how to read the language of horses. Horses give us very obvious feedback and signs that let us know when we are in or out of alignment- which in turns helps us to trust our intuition more deeply and know when it is at play.
Horses in their own sensitivity evoke an awakening for us in our intuition so we can be confident in it and use it to our advantage to everything we are being called to create.
During this retreat we will be immersing ourselves in the intuitive space of the horse to deepen and amplify our work with intuition in a way that will make our capacity to hold space for our intuition to speak to us much more profound.
For 3 nights you will experience a transformative journey inwards, led by the magic and beauty of the beautiful valley where the ranch and horses call home, and the horses themselves. Alongside the majesty of the space, you will also have your own sacred and still cabin to rest and reflect in, holistic plant based food to nourish your body and soul and be held in a foundation to witness your depth with the horses, Chloe and Hillary.
One of the most incredible pieces of working with horses, especially in this setting, is that there is what we know, and there is what we don’t know. Every single time we step into this herd of horses, a magic takes place that one could never plan. Stepping into the unknown.

Epona Rise Retreat Center:
An 80 acre ranch in the picturesque Heffley Creek Valley, north of Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada. Along with the beauty of our acreage, our ranch comes complete with a stunning guest lodge, catering, industrial kitchen, gorgeous rustic rooms with custom wood furnishings, and a herd of horses that easily add to the magic and experiences at our facility.
Meet The Herd:
Epona Rise Retreat Center is home to a herd of 18+ beautiful horses. What sets this herd apart is not only their backgrounds and where they have come from, but also why they chose to be doing this work, at this space. Every horse at Epona Rise comes with a story and what we call a medicine. When it comes to rescue horses (and the horse industry in general), when a horse is rescued and enters a life away from cruelty- we believe there is a magic there. Somehow, the horse is guided towards a different life. Our herd holds a diversity in ages, breeds, stories and offerings. Many of them rescued, we treat the horses very differently to the standard relationship at Epona Risa. When horses are offered the option to “work” every single day, and given the space to be who they are, a different dynamic comes into play around how they show up and how they are able to support us.
