Katie Boehm Memorial Retreat
Katie Boehm Memorial Retreat 2023
Horses are innately accepting, tolerant, kind, respectful, honest, fair, nonjudgmental, compassionate, and forgiving. Horses require us to be present and mindful when working with them. They help us become better people, parents, partners, and friends. A horse can be our greatest teacher, for horses have no egos, and they
manifest unparalleled compassion.
** This retreat focuses on groundwork, however there is an option to ride a horse at the end of the retreat.

Questions you may have...
Q: What is the refund policy?
A: As you can imagine, planning an event like this takes lots of time, energy and resources. A 100% refund is possible if you cancel by Aug 29, and a 50% refund is possible if you cancel by Sept 14. After Sept 14, no refunds will be offered.
Q: What kind of footwear is best around horses?
A: Closed toe shoes are a MUST for safety reasons. Running shoes/sneakers are fine but many of them are made with mesh and you may find that the sand from the arena gets inside your shoes. Rubber boots are my recommendation, if you have them.
Q: What's the weather like in Nipawin at this time of year?
A: This is northern Saskatchewan and things could be nippy in Sept/Oct! Lows average around -2C (28 F) and the highs for the day are around +10C (50F), but it can be very mild too! I suggest many layers that you can add or take off. You might want to bring wind pants and a light insulated jacket for outdoors and horse work. If the weather permits, I'd like to do some nature hikes and maybe some sky gazing at the Northern Lights! (If you have cold feet like me, bring some slippers too!)
Q: What about travel to the ranch?
A: Getting to the ranch is your responsibility. If you are looking for a carpool group, let Lisa know and she can put you in touch with others traveling from Regina or Saskatoon.
Q: Can you accomodate particpants with celiac disease or nut allergies?
A: The kitchen and facility are not gluten or nut-free, but meals are prepared with gluten-free and lactose-free ingredients when possible.
Q: Does each participant have their own bathroom?
A: Each participant will have their own bedroom or loft space, but bathrooms are shared. The ranch house is a beautiful home with 4 bathrooms that are shared by all attendees. There is also a fifth bathroom in the arena.
Q: How do I know if I'm ready for something like this?
A: If you are ready to work in a group and be present for the horses and others, then you are ready. If you are unsure, please contact Lisa at Lisa@LisaKBoehm.com
