Need to rekindle your passion for animals and the outdoors so that you can reconnect kids in a more meaningful way?
Join C&NN Senior Associate Page Lambert for the 4th annual, 5-day horseback writing retreat at the beautiful Vee Bar Guest Ranch near Laramie, Wyoming, and rediscover your natural story.
What is it like to view the world through the eyes of a horse? To understand a horse's relationship with the land? What stories do horses hold inside them? How can their sensual and perceptive natures help us to interpret and write our own stories?
A horse is an instinctive animal. Humans, too, are instinctive and, like horses, our natural environment is not between four walls. Horses remind us to be engaged with the world. They understand fear. They understand courage. We’ll get to know our horses from the ground. We’ll get to know our horses from their backs.
We’ll ride in small groups formed by our various comfort levels. We'll ride among cows and newborn calves in mountain meadows. We’ll ride together across open grasslands and on forested mountain trails. We’ll learn about animals as characters. We’ll learn about ourselves as storytellers.
For 5 days, we will write about, read about, and be about horses! All levels of writing and riding experience welcome.
Deposit deadline extended to March 15.
“Page is a horse whisperer for writers!”
Leigh Haber, editor of Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth.
"I loved everything about Page's Literature & Landscape of the Horse retreat at the Vee Bar. I haven't felt as refreshed from a trip in years—it just filled me up! It was truly was one of the top five vacations/retreats of my life!” ~ Lisa Couturier, author of The Hopes of Snake and Other Tales from the Urban Landscape
