“Women of the Rancho” calls you to embark on a transformative adventure at Alisal Ranch, a carefully curated wellness horse-centered retreat nestled in the heart of California.  Surrounded by the serene beauty of nature, like-minded women, and the healing energy of horses, this women’s retreat with horses promises to light up your heart and ignite a positive transformation.

Are you ready to:

  • Embrace a powerful transformation that starts with your personal wellness goals, a horse of your own for four riding days, time to relax and rest, and each night culminates in dressing in boots and bling cowgirl style for cocktails and dinner with new friends?
  • Have a horseback riding retreat with your best girlfriend, sister, mom, or a group of girlfriends who want a girls’ riding adventure together? Or is it time for you to take a solo trip to Alisal Ranch to experience a retreat that offers everything you want, including luxury accommodations, gourmet meals, trail riding in nature, gentle morning yoga, and some downtime?
  • Explore your wellness habits, make a new connection with a horse and nature, improve your horsemanship skills, and put some space between you and screen time, politics, raising a family or work?

If your answer is YES, join us at this exclusive women’s wellness retreat!  Duke Health Coach Janet Solie has created a special program that harnesses the unique charm of Alisal Ranch, its renowned horseback riding program, and warm hospitality with a touch of luxury.
