Are you a visionary who is seeking a space to call in your next big vision?

Are you looking for a space that will hold you in the clarity of the evolving nature of your leadership?

Looking to create sanctuary for yourself as you navigate any of those lingering fears that are keeping your places of leadership and vision small?

As leaders and as visionaries, we require a container to hold us when we are in the vulnerable and sacred process of creating, where we can sit, listen, and be reflected in what is next as we are evolving ourselves and the spaces we hold in the world.

We all have our blind spots---the places where we hide our wisdom and true intentions. As masters, we know the benefit of having a space held for us with a masterful mentor that can move us beyond our places of small vision. 


When we enter into the space of the horse, we are given a mirror and a master who holds us in the depth of our potential beyond the blind spots we are holding for ourselves.

Horses are pure, and they are not intimidated by our power. They don’t hold agenda, and they don’t have a bias of how we need to be held in our spaces.

When we are in our creative spaces, it is natural that our blind spots will emerge. When we are seeking to create a space where we don’t compromise the depth and brilliance of what is wanting to emerge through us, you can find that here.

How Our Retreats work...

We understand the power of having a process that feels supportive to what we are seeking.

Whether you are wanting to get clear on your book, and create space to begin to write it...

Or there is a new program that is wanting to emerge...

Or you are feeling called to amplify your leadership in the world, uplevel your practice and bring life to the genius that is part of your impact...

We create a space for it.

Our retreats are created around what will provide the most enriching and clarifying experience that you are seeking to get clear, to get centered and grounded in your next level of leadership and vision.

Each day, you awake and are given a schedule that feels supportive for you, breakfast with a view of our stunning valley and time to settle into what is coming up for the day.

We spend our morning with the horses, bringing our intentions to them and witnessing what feedback they are giving us. With horses, we can depend and rely that we will receive feedback that will mirror our authenticity not our ego and our fears.

Your afternoon is spent digesting, processing and applying the wisdom of the horses while being fed with food to sustain and nurture your body, mind, and soul.

Your evenings are yours to discern what you would like to create with, a check in with us, a process to be guided through, a brainstorming session to receive feedback on what is created, and a healthy dinner to sustain you into the night.  

The space of our center will be yours for the duration of your time, having full privacy and 80 acres of landscape, nature, and horses to empower your process.

At the end of the retreat, you will have your “end” product, the vision, the book, the outline, the knowing of what your new program or vision of leadership will be with an anchoring on what it feels like to step into it.


This is not an ordinary retreat experience.

When we are being asked to expand in our vision, it means we too are expanding. With horses, we are given a tangible expression of that expansion which we feel in our bones that can apply its wisdom to what we are creating.

If you are seeking a space that will call you forward into the fullness of your leadership and the evolving nature of your work, where you will receive unbiased feedback and a space that will deeply reflect the core of what is being asked to be expanded....  

If you are being called to retreat to create and you are seeking a powerful ally to support you in this process...

The wisdom and guidance of horses at our beautiful retreat space could be a beautiful alignment to what you are seeking.

A little bit about our space and my story…

We have a beautiful 80 acre retreat facility, which is home to the retreats I hold in partnership with horses and is also a space where others can come to experience the transformation and facilitation of our own work.

Nestled up a mountain, we are surrounded by thousands of acres of untouched landscape that gives you the true, inspiring purity of nature and what she calls forward in us.

Home to a herd of 26 masterful equine teachers, the energy of our facility is inspiring, magical and evoking of the true power we are seeking to access.


About your retreat location...

Our ranch is located on a stunning 80-acre backdrop in a valley in the mountains north of Kamloops, British Columbia.

Surrounded by thousands of acres of crown land, our ranch is both wild and soulful in creating the perfect backdrop for holding the space for the grandness of our visions.

A beautiful creek runs through our property making way for many meditative spaces on the land to drop into a deeper clarity and listening of ourselves and wisdom the land has to give us in support of our visioning process.

40 minutes from the airport and the city of Kamloops

4.5 drive from Vancouver, BC.

7 hour drive to Calgary Alberta

6.5 hour drive from Seattle, Washington

2.5 hour drive from Kelowna, BC.

Our ranch boasts both the beauty of feeling remote with the allowance of having connection to the outside world that creates a perfect retreat experience. While we do not have cell reception at our facility, we do have wi-fi in our lodge and communal space for you to continue to stay tapped in and tend to your work as need be and still have moments of shut off for true reflection.

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!

What is Unique about the energy of this space…

This retreat center is a vision of my own big calling in the world and brings forward an energy that supports the manifestation of those that are coming to get a dose of confidence and inspiration towards what they are calling in for themselves.

Our visions can manifest. The evolution of our leadership is the gateway to that. Our capacity and ability to allow ourselves to create in alignment to the purity and potential of what that is is  essential.

This is what this retreat supports.

What Your Retreat Includes:

  • Accommodation, meals and shuttle to our retreat centre

  • Facilitation with the herd and myself

  • Private cabin and access to our stunning lodge and 80 acres

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.
