Weekend Theme - Inspiration, Education & Relaxation

 Thursday, Friday & Saturday

Each morning will start with our PPE Trail Horse Retreat Workshop Session. We will select a different daily topic specific to the group of riders in attendance.  With this customized format each rider should be able to advance in their equine communication skills while improving the quality of the relationship. 

Afternoons will be all about hitting the trails.  With a small group of supportive riders (limited to 10-15) we will encounter many fun and challenging trail obstacles including water, bridges, tunnels and more. See some amazing views while building confidence in your horse. 

A group day trip is planned for one afternoon for a visit to a local  zoo and large tack store.  This is a great way for us humans to take a break and have some fun. 


10am-12pm  Weekend Wrap Up Session (last minute questions answered) and/or you can hit the trail one last time before heading home.  

Each rider will have the opportunity to have specific questions answered and training needs met during the sessions each day.   We will be on site to assist with any questions that you may have during your stay over the weekend concerning your horse or horsemanship. 

A FUN Group field trip is planned for one afternoon to a interactive animal Park!

-Please do not bring a horse that has never been ridden. Horses must have had at least some trail experience prior to the Clinic. If you or your horse have had no trail riding experience, contact PPE for information about what you can do to prepare to participate in a Trail Ride Retreat and which of our many events would work better for that type of situation.
