Visionary RetreatS

For soulful Women ENTREPRENEUR


Welcome Soulful Entrepreneur....

Visionary Retreats for Soulful Women Entrepreneurs is an escape from the noise of our lives, expectations and static so we may drop into a place of stillness, empowerment and clarity on where the next evolution of our leadership and business is calling us.

Nestled in a stunning 80 acre retreat facility in the heart of a majestic valley you will find a space that was created to empower the leadership and vision of sacred purpose.



As visionaries... 

Our gift is in the ability to feel and to see the next vision, the next evolution and feel the threads before they happen.

The challenge can be grounding that vision into reality, breaking it down into concrete steps without losing your inspiration that you started with and separating the difference between fantasy and the real big dreams we are being called to hold space for.

When we are called we must answer...

 If you are feeling the nudge and pull of the next big vision of your purpose and your business, that is seeking you out,

The Visionary retreat  is a beautiful space to clear any noise that may be getting in the way of you creating the space to see the fullness of the vision and to witness who you need to be to hold it.

During this retreat, we create space to...

  • pull the fullness of your vision to life
  • ground it into practical steps so you know how you are going to make it a reality.
  • hold space for you, the visionary and creator to nurture the needed confidence and trust in your ability to bring it to life.

As soulful Entrepreunuers...

It is important for us to have a space held for us so we may tune into our own process and be reminded of our power to bring forward our leadership and vision to life in a deeper way.

Our clients seek out this retreat to:

  • Experience stillness from burn out.
  • Clarify the next evolution of their leadership and business
  • Overcome their fears and doubts that are preventing them from stepping into the bigness of their work.
  • Get solid and more tangiable on their natural strengths as a facilitator and leader and understanding how to translate that into powerful experiences for their clients.
  • Create their new program or offering from a place of soul over a space of ego.

This is not an ordinary retreat experience.

You are given a private space in a beautiful valley with facilitation of a herd of 20 wise equine facilitators that will not let you escape your deeper calling and will mirror to you where you are hiding, what needs to shift, and what it feels like to anchor in the deep transformation your soul of your leadership and your business is guiding you.

A private cabin, catered meal experience, full days of masterful facilitation with our herd accompanied with time of reflection, you are sure to leave this retreat feeling clear, rejuvenated,  and reconnected to your higher purpose with clarity of how that wants to continue to be brought forward by your leadership.

As women who naturally hold space for others...

it is important for us to seek out containers that also hold space for us, so we may too be reflected in where we are being asked to evolve, transform or to settle into being reinsured on our courageous journey of purpose and space holding.

The inclusion of the wisdom of our horses is part of what makes this retreat experience unlike anything else you have stepped into. Horses as prey animals are naturally highly sensitive and intuitive, when we are with them we are given mirrors of pure feedback as they are constantly responding to our energy and our impact. Sometimes the energy that we are moving with is unconscious, with the horses it becomes clear and apparent and in their interaction with us we are able to witness when we are in our authenticity as opposed to when we are in our egos.

As visionaries and business women it is imperative that we are able to stay in the true depth of our leadership and integrity to have the fullest impact of our work, and to nurture our purpose and visions to life. Where we can easily hold ourselves back from the bigness of our leadership and purpose, the space with the horses ensures that we don't hide from our place of power and vision that we may be too afraid to claim.

All experiences with our herd are done on the ground, which means no previous horse experience is necessary to fully take in the connection and partnership with our wise herd of 20 horses.


Your retreat includes:

  • Accommodation in your own private boutique cabin
  • Fully catered healthy and soulful meals
  • Equine Guided Facilitation with myself and my herd
  • Personal reflection time on our 80 acres to deepen your experience
  • 1 month of coaching post retreat because integration and support is important
  • Shuttle to and from the ranch

Magic! There is magic and magnificence everywhere at Epona-Rise!! Hillary is the connection - the gateway through which the horses and the land speak. The messages are deep and powerful and opened up places in me I had no idea were there. I walked away from the weekend wiser, with tangible tools and techniques to take back into my life and with a peaceful inner smile because I have been shown that there is magic everywhere......if you will only choose to see it!

I felt the magic of Epona as soon as I arrived, but it was the next morning, when it was quiet except for a few birds and I was walking through the mist that I experienced the depth of the place. I could talk about the gorgeous lodge where we lounged for hours and soaked up the sun or the cabins that had everything we needed and where I slept like a baby. But the space you’ve created is so much more than amenities and structures. It has heart and soul. It’s sprinkled with a rare sort of still, deep magic. I felt more connected to my heart walking those fields than I had in months. The time we spent with the horses showed me things about myself and my impact in an immediate, profound way. I still think about it, months later. And more than that, I live it. That’s the power of your work, Hillary. It sinks into the bones and becomes a part of anyone who experiences it.

About Hillary


Hillary is a visionary, coach, equine guided facilitator and CEO of Epona Rise Retreat Center.

A lifelong dreamer and pursuer of higher calling, she has lead her life in belief of her potential to bring life to her own visions and purpose beyond what she initially believed was possible.

At  32 years old, she manifested the biggest vision of her life in a beautiful 80 acre ranch and stepped into fulfilling her purpose of having a space for her herd, work and a retreat where others could come to touch the magnificence of their own brilliance.


I’ve worked with several coaches over the past few years and I’ve gained insights for my business, but I felt like Hillary really got what I do, how I show up and what I want. She was able to help me uncover my strengths, natural style and the path to success on my terms. This is rare. She really is a unicorn.

One of the reasons I chose to work with Hillary was for the work with the horses. As a lifelong equestrian, I know the power of these animals, their sensitive nature and the connection they have with humans. This was an entirely new facet, though. It was fascinating to see how the horses can help you see the lens through which you view the world and offer a different perspective in a non-threatening way. Hillary’s observations and powerful questions facilitated some big ahas.

I discovered that I have several beliefs about myself that needed some adjustment. Because the learning was experiential with the horses, I feel like those lessons have really stuck. I learned about connection and leadership and have taken those lessons home and I use them daily. I can’t remember another time that learning has resulted in an ongoing shift and continued learning.

Again, Hillary was able to take what happened in the sessions with the horses and apply that to the coaching and planning work away from the horses. Everything felt custom-tailored to me and it felt like I was finally able to pull together ideas, concepts and offerings that I’d been struggling to connect for years. It felt aligned to me, rather than following someone’s step by step program. Hillary also shared her entrepreneurial journey which was helpful for me. I learn by hearing about other’s experiences. Her transparency and generosity are much appreciated.

The peacefulness and spaciousness of the retreat center are a big part of why we accomplished so much in three days. I’m still so excited about what we mapped out: my leadership styles, my business and life vision, programs, pricing, messaging, marketing (in a way that works for me) and a plan to bring all of this to life. Again, these are things I’ve been wanting to have for years–and we did it in three days. We’re just beginning our work together, but I feel like I’ve got incredible support and that what emerges over the next few months will support me, my business and vision for years to come.
