ABOUT

The youth & young adult riders retreat is a live-in mentor program designed to impact youth; helping inspire them to overcome life’s challenges to be the very best they can be.
Each day we have multiple sessions on horse & rider training, and career choice/university & personal development. We also have daily activities which bring everyone together for lots of laughs and healthy interaction.
A healthy dose of work ethic & team work is also given daily.

Everyone’s journey is unique and there are many different reasons for coming. Some are wanting to know more about the horse industry and how to train horses & riders, others suffer from anxiety, fear or depression. Some are being bullied,  some have low self-worth and others just need help deciding what career path to take in life.
Everyone is welcomed in like family. When you arrive you are part of the “Free Riding Team”.

This program is very personal. We learn together, work together, sleep together and LOVE LIFE together.
Each Youth Retreat’s activities are slightly different depending on what location we are based at.

In addition to the daily sessions we visit different local attractions such as: wild life parks, Beaches, National Parks, Movies, Markets, Horse Shows, Bowling, Ice-Cream parlors, museums, laser tag, pools and much more.
Team work is essential here and everyone is expected to help out from, setting up for the lessons, packing up camp, cooking, cleaning, looking after the horses and other daily chores. Everything is a learning experience.
