What horses can teach us about ourselves and our relationships.

In this unique retreat experience, you will have the space and guidance to reconnect with yourself in the nourishing environment of a guest ranch. Through the magical energy of horses, you will have the opportunity to heal, refresh, and reawaken to the wonderment of life.


Why Horses

Horses have long been known for their energy and intuition. These beautiful creatures are becoming recognized for their ability to augment healing, health, leadership, and empowerment.

Horses offer an honest reflection to your whole being, including your subconscious. They provide authentic feedback of where you stand within yourself and in relationship to others. They can read if you are misaligned with your truth.  This allows the root cause of disconnection to shine through, allowing you to reconnect and heal.



What to Expect

You will be nourished physically and spiritually from the moment of your arrival to your departure.  Each day will include meditation, mindful movement, experiential exercises with horses, horseback riding, ranch life relaxation, exquisite ranch cuisine, and more.



This Experience is for you if…

  • You have an interest in horses and a desire to connect more deeply with yourself.
  • You need a getaway to disconnect to reconnect in a unique way.
  • You seek a fun and powerful way to emotionally heal and deepen your self-awareness.
  • You crave a meaningful vacation experience with like-minded individuals
  • You desire the opportunity for personal growth through experiential learning in the ranch environment.
  • You are looking for a fun immersive opportunity to personally learn and grow spiritually through horses.



What Our Prior Guests Are Saying…

“The four days spent at the CM Ranch Mindful Equine Experience under the guidance or Jan Hoath and Lauren Pokay were life changing, and set me on a new positive life trajectory. I’ve attended many mindfulness, meditation programs over the years but the combination of the location, horses, and the connection to both leaders and the other amazing women attending was such a powerful experience.

Meet your Facilitators


Equine Facilitator, Lauren Pokay

Lauren Pokay is the founder of Pokay Consulting Services. With over 18 Years of experience working with horses, she has seen first hand the healing power they innately possess. Lauren began riding when she was 5 years old. As she entered college, she started working for a therapeutic riding center for children with special needs. It was there she discovered her passion for utilizing horses to help individuals and families heal from life’s trials.

After college, Lauren carried her passion into the Dude Ranch Industry where she was a Head Wrangler and Barn Manager for 7 years, teaching horsemanship to people of all ages. Her biggest motivator during this time was seeing the guests and staff discover newfound confidence in themselves, with the help of the horses.

Lauren started her company to share her knowledge and expertise with as many people as possible, so they too can reconnect to themselves and begin the healing process so many of us desire. She now provides teambuilding and leadership coaching to guest ranch leaders and staff members across the country. Lauren utilitzes a unique approach of combining Equine Assisted Learning and coaching techniques. This allows her participants to step into their true potential by discovering parts of their lives that no longer serve them well and embracing the things that do.

Lauren believes horses are some of the most powerful teachers available to us. With their innate ability to read our energy and meet us where we are in the present, they can help us heal in ways that can only be described as magincal. She looks forward to working with you through the CM Ranch Mindful Equine Experience.
