Things to know before you book:
Horses: Safety is our top priority. Height and weight restrictions do apply. In general, 190-200 LBS. IS OUR MAXIMUM FOR HORSEBACK RIDING (also depends on height). Horseback riding experience is not required; however, we have found that those who have some prior experience get the most out of your retreat.
Yoga: Yoga experience is also not required; although, we have found that those who have prior yoga experience get the most out of the retreat, even if you start a practice with the retreat in mind. We practice vinyasa flow and restorative yoga.
Bugs: We have them :-) See our FAQ page for more info...
This is an active vacation, so if you prepare accordingly you will have more fun. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
