The sessions will include our Traditional week, October 1 to 7 and our Intensive week, October 8 to 14. The second week is being offered for the first time to a smaller group of participants seeking more one-on-one instruction. The all-inclusive luxury wellness week features horseback riding, horsemanship instruction, gentle yoga, massage, deep relaxation techniques and healthy dining.
“The retreat is designed to balance the body, calm the mind, lighten the spirit and teach participants how to better communicate with their horse,” says Tammy Pate, who has been leading the retreat for 12 years at the 14-room Relais & Chateaux affiliated ranch.
Janice Baxter, who has been teaching yoga since 1972 in Hawaii and has a lifelong love of horses, shows participants how to incorporate yoga into their riding program and everyday lives. Tammy, born into a Montana ranching family, has been riding all her life and manages a cattle operation with her husband, stockman/horseman Curt Pate. A skilled rancher and expert horsewoman, Tammy learned firsthand how the benefits of yoga on the equestrian body can bring a deeper awareness of mental and physical balance and improve one’s horsemanship skills.
The six-night, seven-day program features daily equestrian yoga classes with Janice and personalized horsemanship and riding instruction from Tammy. Each of the participants, assigned their own horse for the week, also enjoy daily rides through the beautiful Elk River Valley and Routt National Forest areas.
