Retreating IS good for your soul….

Curious about the benefits of retreating with HORSES?

Horses offer in the moment feedback as to how you’re showing up, the energy your holding and emitting (conscious & unconsciously) as well as how to live in balance and harmony with what it.  

In short, they are gracious, masterful teaches and guides. 

 

 We offer a semi-structured 3 day/2 night retreats – that includes:  Reflective time in nature, supportive containers to commune with horses,  gentle guidance through restorative healing practices, energy clearing & rebalancing, guided meditations, forest bathing,  mounted moving meditations as well as nourishing farm fresh breakfasts and lunches, and farm chic shared or private room accommodations. Afternoons/Evenings are free for you to explore, integrate, rest & digest.  

 

 Read more on our JUNE 17, 18, 19 Summer Solstice Inspired Healing through Horse Wisdom UPCOMING offering. 

 

 Prefer a solo or private retreat experience? Just you, or you and your people?  We are honoured to curate a unique experience that’s designed with you and yours in mind. Flexible 2-4 day stays. Simply book your dates and let the journey begin. We will be in touch to curate you a boutique equine retreat experience.

Why Retreat with Horses?

When you retreat with horses, you open to the experience of non-linear, non-human knowing. While held in natures embrace, you explore the richness of connection by learning how you ATTUNE & COMMUNE. The wise and generous spirit of the horse guides the way....

– It’s a horse powered, embodiment experience

Have Questions ? Look here for answers to some common ones

  • I have little to no horse experience, is this retreat still suitable for me? ( YES! This retreat is about honouring YOU and where YOU’RE at. All interactions with horses are on the ground. We provide you with all of the support and guidance you’ll need to explore & expand your current relationship with the magnificent equine) 
  • I have some physical limitations or concerns – will I still be able to participate in yoga session and meditation in motion ?  (YES. Tracy will be guiding us through a Restorative or YIN yoga practice. Suitable for all bodies and all levels. You are encouraged to honour your limits and communicate your need for support when/if you find you need it during any of the weekend activities) 

 

  • Is it private or shared rooms available for the retreat?  (BOTH. Early bird folks get their choice of either a private OR shared room. If your travelling with a friend, how fun to consider sharing a room!)

 

  • What amenities are on site?  (The guest cottage has a private full kitchen, patio and 3 peice bathroom. The main house has a shared  kitchen, large patio, 2 bathrooms and access to yoga studio. There are walking trails around the property that take you to near and further beautiful locations to explore on foot.) 

 

  • What to wear?! Can I  finally dig out my cowgirl boots that are dying to make an appearance? (HECK YES! Bring stretchy clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Cowboy boots or a sturdy covered shoe, that you can walk in comfortably [think a Blundstone type] if you decide to check out a winery for one of the afternoons/evenings, bring something fun to change into for after the horse & yoga attire)

We hold the vision here at Graystar Farms, of togetherness in Nature.  We welcome collaborating and co-existing with land, water, and animals.   Our goal is to share this land, its inhabitants and its resources to support our collective AND individual healing.

We work play and live on the UNceded land of theSnPink’tn people. (The Penticton Indian Band) represents one of the seven communities of the Okanagan Nation.
