Let Down Your Burdens
As you drive to the property, you can feel your stresses start to melt away. The wide open spaces, abundant wildlife, and towering mountains in the distance allow your brain to wander to the simpler times. The times when there weren’t cell phones asking for attention at every moment, the times where you were allowed to slow down and enjoy the moment and the times that you were able to care for yourself and spend time in quiet reflection.
Spend the long weekend discovering what you truly enjoy, who you are and what inspires joy within you. Your time at Restorative Strides will allow you to connect to your soul, horses, and nature.

Retreats at Restorative Strides are a rustic step back in time. The old granary from 1940 has been turned into a bunkhouse and common area for visitors. The horse paddocks have antique wheels decorating them while adding to the rustic charm. Walk around and see the other old buildings from the late 1800s. Enjoy imagining what it was like to be a homesteader as you look at the sweeping views. Breathe in and enjoy the sound of the wind, the birds chirping and the horses eating. You will be amazed as you look up at night to see the thousands of stars there to hold your wishes.

Great Falls is the closest airport to Restorative Strides. The airport is small and easy to get into and out of. When you land in Great Falls, you will enjoy the easy 90 minute drive out to the ranch. The views are vast and the history is rich.
There are multiple options within a three hour drive of the ranch. Billings and Bozeman airports are easy to fly into and are a three hour beautiful drive away from the ranch.

Retreat goers will be sharing common sleep spaces. We have a bunk room in the Granary that will sleep 5. There is a glamping tent with 2 beds. Pictures to come in the following months. If you need the privacy of your own space while at your retreat, please reach out and let us know when signing up. There is also a small local motel within a short, 8 minute drive. If you would like to book with that motel, instead of the ranch we are happy to accommodate you. We also have room for tents and RVs if you prefer having your very own space!

Restoring Your Truth
There are events that leave a big imprint on us as we walk through life. Sometimes those events push us off course and it can seem as if we are powerless in the moment.
In this intensive weekend, we will process sexual boundaries and trauma that has ocurred and leave it in the dirt where it will never need to be picked up again. The horses have a magical way of seeing you and hearing your heart while helping you put the pieces back together in a way that is empowering. As you put the pieces back together, you will find that the emotional charge from your past traumas has been lessened greatly. Step into your strength, healing and move forward in your life during this intensive weekend.
