Training Retreats

We now offer several training options for those who wish to have a more intensive experience on our equine professors. You can register for sets of 3 days, 5 days, or one month, which you can stack together for longer or intermediate experiences. Each lesson day will have two lessons on our horses and will include overnight stays at our facility, breakfast, and lunch. You can choose to do two dressage lessons per day, one dressage and one carriage driving lesson per day, or one dressage lesson and one trail ride. You may also add on personalized Pilates sessions to your stay. If you register for one month, you will ride 5 days per week and have two days per week free to enjoy the local delights the Sandhills have to offer, including shopping in the charming towns of Southern Pines and Pinehurst, a spa at the Carolina Inn, multiple golf courses, unique local eateries, hikes through national preserves, and much more! All of our Rider Training Retreats offer participants a wonderful opportunity to immerse themselves in classical training while taking time for self-reflection, rest, and growth.

Themed Retreats

We offer regular themed retreats, including our well-liked “Seat Retreats.” Our retreats function like adult camps, giving participants a chance to get away and enjoy themselves in a relaxed atmosphere with like-minded people. Retreats vary in length from 2 1/2 days to week-long sessions. Watch our Events page for upcoming events!

You may also book a special themed retreat for topics such as the seat, lateral work, dressage in the trails, and more. Prices depending on the number of participants and the duration of stay.
