A weekend to fine tune your horse skills, learn a new skill or ride for the first time. If you have a love for horses and want a casual yet refreshing weekend join us for catching up on the hope God has for you!

You can bring your own horse and we will provide the stall OR use one of our horses.  Please email if you plan on bringing your own horse.

Horse trail rides, wagon ride to  a chuckwagon style meal, massage and reflection time, bible/devotion time, confidence building groundwork and riding techniques, coffee/tea/snack bar (yes, there’s chocolate), campfire and chatting, music and fun!

This is a rain or shine retreat as we have a beautiful 100x200 indoor arena too!  We have you covered! (pun intended)

Lodging is in our picturesque Miracle Lodge featuring 27 private, hotel-style rooms. Please note you will be rooming with at least one other lady with this retreat. If this is a concern give us a call and for an additional charge we can give you a private room.

Participants have the option of riding one of the horses at Ironwood Springs or bringing their own horse.  This horse must be broke to ride both in the arena and on the trail.

We require that anyone registering for this camp and riding a horse owned by Ironwood weigh 225# or less.  This is an adult women's retreat so we ask that participants be 18 years of age or older.
