Girlfriend Getaways: Memorable Experiences Mixed with Horse Power

Some of my best memories are weekends away with ‘the girls.’ Are you planning a girlfriend weekend? Whether you are looking for some quality Mother-daughter time, a sister reunion or a ‘sistah’s weekend’ with great friends — we can create a customized program that gives you an opportunity to experience the magic of horses and other special nuggets in Peterborough & The Kawarthas and Northumberland County.Palmer

Mixed with a little horse power, your memorable weekend could include opportunities to:

  • Enjoy the power of our herd at The Mane Intent and participate in a variety of equine assisted learning opportunities (no previous horse experience is required and there is no horseback riding involved). These experiences can be designed to have you and your friends or family:
    • Exploring your life passion and purpose
    • Connecting with the power and energy of horses in a natural setting
    • Understanding mindfulness and greater self-care
    • Building confidence, living with intent and impact
    • Improving communication and interpersonal relationships
    • Having fun together as part of a safe, memorable experience
  • Participate in a variety of other wellness activities including yoga, belly dancing, expressive arts and spa treatments
  • Experience a customized wine-tasting event or dining experience

This beautiful property features a historic farm house, the original log cabin, century barns, and an indoor 9100 sq. ft. arena for equine work. The property includes 20 acres of sugar bush with trails, a hidden meadow, natural wet lands, fields of green and large perennial gardens. It is the perfect setting to explore what’s possible — some accommodation is available.

We would be pleased to help arrange accommodation for your gathering at area resorts like Elmhirst’s Resort, Windswept Bed and Breakfasts, and Thirteen Moons Wellness Retreat. Let us help you pull together a weekend package that promises pampering, a little adventure and a chance to get out of your comfort zone in a beautiful country setting where you can relax and unwind.
