"I used the time on the trail to develop deeper insights about
myself and interactions with others. The experience was reflective
and revealing, as my horse became my partner in personal growth.
I highly recommend this adventure to anyone who wants to be more
in tune with their own rhythm in the world."

"My encounter with the Saddle Sojourns workshop was simply
a unique experience that helped me gain insight to team building
concepts through equestrian techniques. Team building and team effectiveness
is an important element in the business world. The concept of pairing
horses with humans proved to be an invaluable and everlasting tool.
The challenge of accomplishing a common goal with other team members
using our new four-legged friends created an exciting lesson plan!
The program and leadership guidance conducted by Terri, Ivy and
Heidi was expertly executed. These three highly accredited women
have the ability to help individuals improve personal awareness
and companies to enhance their team's performance. After my saddle
encounter I have been highly recommending these workshops to my
commercial clients and peers."

"Personal growth work is challenging - it takes courage and
desire to be introspective, to be vulnerable, and to move into changing
how one perceives life. Saddle Sojourns is a great experiential
retreat process, facilitated by two very capable and talented women,
in the midst of gentle mountains with beautiful horses. These elements
support an individual to get "out-of-the box" to share,
reflect, laugh, cry, and regenerate. The metaphors for learning
are endless...for teams, for individuals, for organizations!"
Suzanne Lahl, Transformation Consultant

experience I would recommend to anyone."

development experience. Not only were the horses a wonderful metaphor

"At age 57 and more than a few pounds overweight, I had just
recovered from some physical problems that had prevented me from
doing any exercise for 4 years. I had not ridden in 20 years when

a 50 mile ride. My life has changed for the better and I love the
