"On my way to the women’s empowerment camp I was nervous and unsure of what I got myself into. I was pushed out of my comfort zone in the best way possible. Between the horses and group setting you get to see things you would never see on your own. It’s a type of therapy only nature and animals can provide. You can spend years in regular therapy and never get the revelations that this setting provides. I left feeling on top of the world and like I can break down any walls i put up."

- Jessica Edwards

"I attended a retreat at CowgirlUp Ranch a couple years ago. It was a life-changing experience. I left there a better and more confident version of myself. I felt empowered and ready to face the things we all stuff down. The owners, the staff, and all the wonderful animals are loving and supportive every step of the way. If you have an opportunity to attend any event for yourself or your children, you won't be sorry."
