Montana Couples Retreat

Montana mountains - Couples Enrichment Retreat

lodge-deckGrab your partner and come to the mountains of Montana, get back to nature and have some fun. Kick back in your own cabin with a scenic view, be spoiled with scrumptious ranch meals, spend time with horses and enhance your relationship.

It is a time to relax and enjoy. Learn about the healing powers of horses, ride in the beautiful Castle Mountains, maybe hike or fish a little, have a massage, and learn relationship skills from your coach Sara Sherman.

Sara will be drawing from her own skills and experiences as a coach and individual involved in her own long term committed relationship. During this retreat you can expect to be guided by the horses, the outdoors and yourselves through long mountain rides, group coaching experiences as well as focused coaching time for you and your partner.

This retreat is for couples who:

  • Are in a committed relationship and want to keep it that way.
  • Are interested in celebrating their partnership, their friendship and themselves.
  • Have hit a plateau in their relationship and are looking to spice things up.
  • Enjoy the outdoors and riding horses.
  • Need some quality time to step outside their busy lives and focus on what really matters.
  • Would benefit from guided self reflection, trusting that with a deeper sense of self comes a more fulfilling and deep partnership.
  • Want to have fun and meet other likeminded couples.

This retreat is NOT for couples who:

  • Are at the end of the line looking for a hail mary.
  • Are attempting to ‘trick’ their partner into attending this retreat in hopes of ‘fixing’ them.


We invite you to ask yourselves the following questions:
1. What is one thing you would like to change about the current state of your relationship?

2. What is one thing you would like to nurture and continue?

These questions, and their answers, will be the foundation of your experience at
Bonanza Creek Country Ranch!

Sara Sherman
sara-flowersWith passion and purpose, Sara Sherman has found her calling doing transformational work that reflects her core values. As a certified Equine Gestalt Coach Sara practices what she teaches, and as a result, her company Discovery Horse, is an embodiment of what she believes and who she is as a person. Sara believes 100% in the power of the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method and its capacity to change lives. So much so that she dedicates her time as sales liaison for the Touched by a Horse certification program and steps in as a trainer for new students and graduates.

Many years of growth and reflection, sprinkled with the trials and tribulations inevitable in a life fully lived, have shaped Sara into the person she is today. She has worked in “people professions” her whole life. Growing up in the hospitality industry and extensive world travel has given Sara a foundation in people skills and living outside the box.

Sara’s work in equine based program administration, child welfare, community mental health and youth and adult addiction recovery have enriched a life already well lived. Sara’s values of authenticity, compassion and connection partnered with the horse’s non-judgmental nature and compassionate soul, offers a coaching experience that is a catalyst for sustainable, transformative growth and self reflection. In 2015 Sara was invited to speak at TEDxGullLake in MN. When you watch her talk, Horses See Our Armor, you gain a true sense of Sara and her work.

“Fabulous experience! You have to experience it to believer the powerful insights and beauty in the experience.”
~ Chris B.

“Sara has a special skill at facilitating individuals and groups in this work with horses. I love what happens when the horse, the facilitator, and the individual work together. This work illustrates that we all have the answer within. Sara does a fantastic job at setting the stage for this magic to happen. The group was wonderful, the horses magical.”
~ Lise L.

“In watching Sara, I was so moved by her compassion and love that she showed, not only towards her client but in her work. She radiates comfort and support so that one feels safe to try explore what it is to be human. A moving and authentic experience.”
~ Liz. L
