Do you dream of being a cowgirl? Always wish you’d lived in the Wild West? Dust off your cowboy hat and put on your boots for a true western experience on the ranch. Women of all ages are invited to spend the weekend experiencing life on the range… while still living in comfort. Stay in the McKanna- Sandrock Retreat Center, with single or double accommodations. Wake up to the sounds of cattle lowing and donkeys braying in the nearby pastures. Enjoy breakfast and a fresh brewed cup of coffee from the “cowboy kitchen” on the porch, then head over to the barn to saddle up and ride the range. Try your hand at using the forge with our local farrier, make your own horsehair jewelry, and take some time for a little R&R in your room or relaxing in a rocking chair on the porch. End your days with chuckwagon dinners and conversation around the campfire. Bible study will focus on what it means to be “Branded by God” and we’ll wrap up the weekend with Cowboy Church at the barn on Sunday morning. Moderate mobility is recommended for this retreat, but no previous horse experience is needed.
Optional Add-on: New to horses? Build up your comfort level and come in early on Friday for a small group riding lesson in our arena. ($45 additional fee)
