Reviews From Past Retreaters:
"In all my adult life I’ve wanted to learn to ride without popping up and down in my saddle. I finally settled for posting (not very Western or comfortable). In TWO DAYS, under MG instruction, I developed an appropriate seat. My horse and I crossed obstacles, swam in a pond and overcame a spook with a move which would’ve previously left me on the ground.
My horses improved and I feel I deserve to ride them."
"I had an amazing time at the retreat. The property was perfect for a get away. Secluded yet easy to get to. The rooms (beds) were comfortable, the food was absolutely delicious (Ms. Cindi should publish a cookbook!). Watching Michael start a few horses in person was remarkable. It never got old to watch him. My biggest takeaway from my experience was confidence. Having my horse in 30 days of training followed by spending the retreat with him gave us a boost that I cannot fully describe. While the horses that are provided for retreaters without their own are wonderful, I can’t imagine having this experience without my own. Applying Michael’s methodologies while receiving encouragement and on-the-spot correction was invaluable. Playing soccer on my “chicken” horse is something I’ll never forget! Whether with your own horse or not, its impossible to finish the retreat without having new confidence and horsemanship skills or, at the very least, having had a relaxing yet exciting time!"
"The retreat not only met but exceeded all my expectations. Michael family and staff were so friendly and accommodating, eager to attempt to meet every request. Watching Micheal with his colt starting and getting the fundamentals of : horse psychology, safety and exercises to control movement of the horse and correct common problems has quickly advanced my horsemanship and confidence. Where else can you find this diverse knowledge and especially resources to cover so many disciplines and let you interact and ride so many types of horses! The schedule was structured but flexible so The group could ask questions and focus on areas we were interested in. Most importantly we were able to apply what we learned by such fun activities as: trail rides, obstacle course and my favorite horse soccer! End your day swaying on a hammock with a gentle breeze listening to the frogs and horses in the background. The food was outstanding and there was plenty of it. Michael, family and staff you all should be very proud of the work you are doing and the positive impact you are making in the lives of people and horses. I had a blast! Thank you."
