Equine Adventure

A Vacation for Your Soul

Peak empathy

Horses offer unique traits that make them a top choice for beneficial animal-assisted healing. Paired with a community of support and expert therapists, you’re welcome to let your guard down and explore deeper.

Rest in the west

Our boutique accommodations foster rest and recovery after meaningful emotional and physical effort offering a sense of accomplishment. Put in the hard work, then eat well and sleep easy through cool, tranquil nights.

Calm communication

Find your inner calm. Horses foster calm communication, promoting more awareness and self-control, reduced impulsivity, and increased emotional regulation — a lesson we teach in a community setting to learn together.

Ranch hospitality

In Colorado, we greet you at Lost Valley Ranch, our working dude ranch in Sedalia, Colorado, set against 26,000 acres of Pike National Forest.

“The conversations are incredibly healing, but so is the immersion in the bounty of the Rocky Mountains.”

– Lisa, Equine Workshop
