Restorative strides

 Services and Offerings

Equine Gestalt Coaching

In this 90 minute one on one session with Alli and a horse, you will be able to identify the things that are holding you back and keeping you stuck. Somatic awareness and guidance from the horse will help us to uncover what it is that you truly want to say  and process in a way that will clear your unfinished business. Gestalt sessions are unlike any other modality, in that you will truly be able to let go and move forward. 

Women's Circle

For millenia, women have come together to process, to create and to work side by side. In our busy, modern days, we don’t find that as often. This is a sacred circle that meets weekly to process, clear unfinished business, work through trauma, discover who we are and hold space for others doing the same. 


Phone Coaching

Get targeted coaching for your goals. In these 30 minute sessions we will work towards the goals that you set

The Ranch

When you drive onto the ranch at Restorative Strides, you are greeted by a feeling of serenity and a feeling of stepping back in time. Things move slower here and the quiet presence of wide open fields with a stunning vista of Square Butte are sure to help the stresses of life melt away. Enjoy watching the horses graze in the pasture and see the milk cows as they saunter around looking for their next mouthful of grass. Sit in the rocking chair as you watch the sun set behind Square Butte and breathe in the fresh, Central Montana air. 


Come stay on the ranch and enjoy 4 days of healing work and beautiful views. Enjoy tasting ranch raised, locally sourced ingredients for your first meal at the ranch as you feel the stresses of your day to day life melting away. Retreats run from Thursday afternoon to Sunday morning. We will dive deep into what is holding you back from the life you want and discover who you are at your core. 

Retreat FAQs

Retreats at Restorative Strides are a rustic step back in time. The old granary from the early 1900s has been turned into a common area for visitors. The horse paddocks have antique wheels decorating them. 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.     

1. Where do I fly into?

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. 

2. Where do we sleep?

Retreat goers will be sharing common sleep spaces. We have a bunk room in the Granary that will sleep 4 and the Hen House has beds for 2. 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. We have the capability to accommodate you as well. 

3. What do I need to bring?

Boots are important to keep your feet safe. The weather is varied in Central Montana and depending on the time of year. We will be outside for most of our retreat as weather allows. A good hat and sunscreen are a must.  A list of packing suggestions will be sent to you in your welcome packet after registration. 

4. I am not an equestrian and/or am scared of horses. Is this retreat still for me?

Absolutely, yes. We have a gentle herd of horses that are on the smaller side. We also have minis that are great at partnering with humans for those that might be scared to be with a bigger horse. 

5. Will we be riding the horses?

No. All of our work with the horses will be done on the ground. So if you are not an equestrian, you will be able to enjoy the healing powers of equine.

Nurturing Wholeness 

In Gestalt, we believe that every person is whole and has their own personal answers to the questions they are asking. During our path in life, there are events that cause us to forget this wholeness. We become pieces of who we once knew 

More Details

In this retreat, we will find those pieces that are missing and learn how to become whole again. Deep gestalt processing while being supported by others on the same path is an incredible experience. You will learn who you are and walk away renewed. 


Retreat will run from Thursday afternoon until Sunday Morning. Food will be provided.
