WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO OUR 4th ALL WOMEN'S HORSEMANSHIP RETREAT TO BE HELD AT THE V6 RANCH!
Our ladies have a great time each year and this year promises to exceed participants exceptions! This is a opportunity for women with the same interest and love of horses are able to be pampered and enjoy each others company as they spend hours with their equine partners. Participants will arrive Tuesday afternoon, anytime after 2:00 p.m. to get their horse and themselves settled. We officially begin with dinner around 5:30 p.m. followed by orientation. Participants stay on site at the V6 Ranch and enjoy three meals a day in the V6 Ranch dining hall. Our time will first be spent making sure each rider is ready to head out on the trail. Richard will be available to help with issues as they arise. An evening ride is sure to be part of this event. Cattle working is always a highlight! You will enjoy an evening ride followed by Richard sharing a few of his favorite stories and leading you in a “Candlelight” Western sing-a-long! (If you encourage him to do so.)
This will be a great opportunity to connect with your horse, enhance your own horsemanship skills, and make some lasting friendships.

The following quotes are from past "All Women's Horsemanship Retreat" participants.
Great opportunity for women to boost their confidence level in a very non-competitive environment - Thank you!
Richard was clear, honest, tactful, and I learned so much about my horse and saw a huge improvement.
The added touches in the rooms as well as the ice chests positioned all around really made the distances away from the barn enjoyable.
Second time - again, absolutely wonderful experience. Thank you Richard for your quiet spirit - calmness while the rest of us were having our issues! Appreciate that you keep the experience relative to all types of riding, not just reining, cows, etc. Also, special thanks to Cheryl for setting up the rooms so beautifully: Appreciate Sarah's help - she added a lot of expertise and enjoyment to the clinic. I was amazed at her knowledge and talent, and at such a young age! Really glad she was here to help - great intuition, and has Richard and Cheryl's gentle, non-condescending spirit. Thanks!
Thanks for a great weekend. I'll be back!
I really enjoyed watching Richard's work with both people and horses. I have a lot of new thoughts and ideas to further my horsemanship. Cheryl's touches here and there - and everywhere made me feel pampered and spoiled! Richard has excellent people skills, never criticizes and is an excellent teacher!
The Winters are a class act!! It was thrilling to see Sarah doing her thing, she's beautiful, sweet, bright and gracious. What a blessed family!
Wonderful Experience. Loved Sunday Worship. Loved Guitar playing. I thoroughly enjoyed this time: Thank you so much.
Enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and all of the extra amenities of Thacher (pool and food!) Thoroughly enjoyed Sarah and Jamie - what wonderful young ladies they are. Cheryl and Richard - you are outstanding!
"Richard is an extraordinary man with an in depth understanding of horses and their humans. More importantly, he has the gift of imparting his wisdom to those of us struggling with any number of problems and issues with our horses." - Kay Gameiro
"It was one of the most enjoyable and productive working weekends I've spent in my 25+ years of riding. Richard has a gift of communicating his years of knowledge and helping each person work toward their goals. The instruction, accommodations, food, --everything was exemplary. The Cowboy Church Service was the highlight of the weekend with scripture, singing and sharing of what we were thankful for. Richard is a wonderful instructor and Cheryl is a wonderful hostess with outstanding organizational skill." -Jackie Morley
"Richard's fabulous style of horsemanship left me inspired and renewed my faith in the fact that REAL people still really do exist at his level of skill. His compassion and simple respect for the horse helped many of us get through some road blocks we were experiencing with our horses. Overall the weekend was definitely a RETREAT in many ways." - Annie Ryan
Thank you so much for providing an environment that I felt comfortable to ask questions and to learn. I have a whole new excitement for my horse and a new spark to continue moving forward!
