Education On Safety And How To Read Horses

"The retreat not only met but exceeded all my expectations. Michael, family and staff were so friendly and accommodating. Watching Michael quickly advanced my horsemanship and confidence. We were able to apply what we learned with fun activities such as trail rides, obstacle course and, my favorite, horse soccer!

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."

“It’s hard to be brief when they’re so many wonderful things to say about the entire week. The food, the accommodations, the staff and the exposure to different riding experiences was something I’ve never known on any trip, anywhere.

I’m especially glad I was able to bring my own horses for this trip. There’s so much more I could say but I will stop for now. Thank you for everything. I have the utmost respect for this trainer and his background. Good honest people.”

"Awesome Retreat!!! Beyond what I expected!!!

Michael gave me the confidence with my horse to try things I never would have tried.

Horse Soccer!! It was so much fun. The staff is wonderful. The food was delicious. I’m planning a trip to go back and bring friends!!"

“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.”
