Horse Speak® All-Inclusive Retreat ** 3 SPOTS LEFT**

June 9 @ 5:00 pm - June 16 @ 9:00 am


Horse Speak All-Inclusive Retreat

Experience what it is like to learn, laugh and love your way into a horse’s heart in the beautiful mountains of Wyoming!​​

Join Horse Speak Senior Instructor Heidi Potter for an unforgettable and enriching experience at Bitterroot Ranch in Dubois, Wyoming USA. This ranch is home to over 200 horses of various levels, breeds and ages. The ranch is located in the beautiful Wind River valley, bordering the Shoshone National Forest, just fifty miles from Yellowstone National Park. Retreat guests will experience the rare opportunity of observing the truly natural language and behaviors of horses that live in the most natural of settings. Participants will be immersed in observing and connecting with horses in the big herd of 150, along with the mares and foals of ranch’s Spanish Arabian breeding program. Lessons in decoding and encoding equine language will be abundant in this magical setting.

Heidi’s journey in Horse Speak began in 2017, learning from friend, mentor and founder, Sharon Wilsie. Learning Horse Speaks “Precise Equine Body Language Skills” allows you interpret the truly natural language of the horse. Through mimicking their Gestures, Postures, Signals and Breath Messages you can enter the conversation, answer their most pressing questions. and offer them comfort, support and enrichment.

Learning Horse Speak will deepen your understanding of horses, their behaviors and how you affect them. You will find success with calmly reshaping undesirable behaviors, creating enriching experiences and building rapport. The result is safer, calmer, more enjoyable and trusting relationships with every horse you meet.

This retreat is designed for everyone from experienced horse people to horse lovers with no experience. Whether you show horses, own horses, work in equine health, volunteer at rescues, are involved in the equine therapy world or simply love horses, this retreat will inspire you. It will teach you how to offer horses enrichment and support them mentally, emotionally, and physically in a short amount of time.

Not Just Horse Speak…..
