As a Woman Entrepreneur or Professional do you ever feel that burning desire to step away from the day to day grind and create more space in your life for you?

To really tune in to your inner voice and set intentions for your dreams and goals? 

Our Equine Partnered workshop is where you can regroup, focus, plan, and get clarity on your next move. A place where you can interact with other like minded women that ISN'T about networking but truly about supporting each other to clarity and confidence

Birdsong fills the air, the trees & shrubs ready to bloom, the distinct, comforting scent of the horses and hay fills the air, grounding you in the moment. And then you see them - the horses, and you feel a deep sense of homecoming and peace and lean into your moment to plan for what comes next, to set your intentions, and to indulge in some self-care for the soul. 

 It's in these moments of stillness and reflection that we can find the clarity and inspiration to take our personal and professional lives to the next level. So take a breath, find your center, and allow yourself the time and space to get really intentional about what you want next. 

It's The PERFECT Time For You To Take A Gentle Pause
To Refresh and Renew

The Spring Equinox marks a powerful portal for personal growth and new beginnings. 

Imagine a fresh Vancouver morning, as you arrive at Believe & See Ranch, a beautiful urban oasis.  As the rush of the outside world, and the never ending digital onslaught fades into a distant whisper, you instantly feel connected with nature, yourself, and the other participants who have just arrived.

The darkness of winter has given way to the light and warmth of the Spring Equinox approaching in just a couple of days.

Horses are intuitive creatures that can help you tap into your own intuition and inner wisdom, leading to fulfilling and purpose-driven decisions

Horses provide a mirror for your emotions and behavior, helping you become more self-aware and mindful.

 They offer pure feedback without any bias or judgment, helping you develop better leadership skills

95% of our communication lies in the non verbal, subconscious & energetic realm. 

Horses will help you discover the hidden language of your heart. With their intuitive nature, they'll guide and help you communicate your true intentions with power and grace..

Directing & connecting a thousand pound creature through mental focus, energy, creative visualization and intention, awakens your awareness of your true power and potential.

Every interaction is an enriching & life changing experience  

Pure Magic Happens....

When Horses & Humans Get Together


All of our activities with the horses are done on the ground and at your comfort level for proximity.  

While most exercises are done at liberty in the fields or paddocks, they can be modified to be on a halter or over the fence with no impact to the profound and transformational experience.

"It was such an amazing way to learn & understand... what was most relevant for me"

I really enjoyed the Mini Retreat!

It was such a warm and inviting space to connect, recharge, and tune in.  Working with the horses was such an amazing way to learn and understand more deeply, what is most relevant for me in the moment.  I really enjoyed learning & connecting with the group as well, Nafissa is warm, wise & creates a beautiful safe space for growth and healing.

It's a unique experience that invites deeper exploration of self in a beautiful, relaxing space"

Unplug from the daily grind and immerse yourself in the soothing inspiration of nature, the camaraderie of a like-minded community, and the magic of equine energy. A perfect opportunity to get centered for the new season ahead.

Through the eyes of a horse, you will see yourself in a different light. Horses reflect our energy back to us, without judgment or agenda. 

By learning from their wisdom and intuition, you'll gain deeper insights into your own energy and be better equipped to achieve your personal and professional goals.

Horses can teach you about setting boundaries, asking for what you want with clarity and being present in the moment, which can lead to a greater sense of balance and well-being in your life.

By working with horses, you'll learn about trust, courage, and self-awareness, which can be valuable tools for personal growth and development.

Spend an Afternoon With this Magical Herd, a Powerful Circle of Women, And Me

Renewal and Realignment, we all need it 

Do you ever feel like the distractions and noise of everyday life pull you away from what truly matters?

It's crucial to consciously quiet the mind, check in with our gut and heart brains, and realign with our purpose and calling.

That's why I created Equi-librium, a series of mini retreats that provide a gentle pause to ground, reconnect with your center of balance, clarity, and alignment.

Through working with horses, you can learn to tap into your intuition, gain a deeper understanding of nonverbal communication, and cultivate the tools necessary for personal growth and development.

Equi-Nox is the latest addition to the Equi-librium series, centered around the powerful symbolism of the symbolism of the equinox.  We'll have one each spring & fall on or near the actual equinox..

 It's an opportunity to step back and lean into these powerful portals, and set intentions and gain clarity, and to indulge in self-care for your soul.

 This retreat is just one in the Equi-librium series, each with its own unique theme and structure, so you can find the perfect fit for your needs.

Join us on March 17, 2024, from 11 to 3 pm, for Equi-Nox - Spring Edition, and discover the power of this gentle pause for yourself.

And if you're interested in curating your own experience with a select group of friends or team members, you can book a private Equi-librium retreat on a date of your choosing.


and into your body & soul

The Spring Equinox is a powerful time of year when the days and nights are of equal length, and the earth is in balance.

It's a time of renewal, rebirth, and growth, as the energy of the earth begins to shift and awaken from the darkness of winter.

It offers a potent portal for setting intentions and manifestation. It's a time to take stock of where we are and where we want to be, and to call in the energy and abundance we need to move forward.

As the earth begins to awaken and come back to life, we too can tap into this energy of growth and renewal, harnessing the power of the spring equinox to set our goals in motion. Whether it's a business goal, a personal goal, or a relationship we want to cultivate, the equinox offers a unique opportunity to bring our intentions to fruition.

By taking advantage of this potent portal and tapping into the energy of the earth, we can manifest our desires and move forward with clarity, purpose, and joy.

“….horses relate to the world from a feminine or “yin” perspective.
As a result, the species is a living example of the success and
effectiveness of feminine values, including cooperation over competition,
responsiveness over strategy,
 emotion and intuition over logic, process over goal,
and the creative approach to life that these qualities engender…..

(They’re) highly effective in helping people reintegrate mind and body,
increase awareness of unconscious behavior patterns, and develop
the self-confidence, stress management, and assertiveness skills that
lead to increased success”

Linda Kohanov
Author of Tao of Equus,

You will be warmly welcomed, with a goody bag, as well as light refreshments and snacks 

You will work with the Herd in unique and powerful ways, tapping into the energy of the equinox portal. Through your interactions you'll gain valuable insights and clarity on your path forward.

To help you integrate these experiences and anchor your newfound wisdom, you'll have the chance to create your own talisman in a transformative visualization and expressive arts exercise.

The opening Circle will set the stage for a supportive and connected community.  And as you share and commit to action steps, you'll conclude the workshop with a sense of renewed purpose and direction.

"It sounded like an opportunity to get out of my head, into my heart and into nature....

And that's exactly what happened.

...aside from having a pleasant, fun day, and adventure and all that....I was able to get some insights into how I lead and reconnect with my personal power.

...There's wisdom from horses and wisdom through horses"

-Sue Clement | SueClement.com

"It was so much more than just a retreat...

...it was a “deep dive” into breaking through what holds us back. I left with a renewed sense of self and an exciting action plan for the months ahead.

 Most impactful though was the incredible group of women and the inspirational shared experiences we had together. Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity!”

got questions?

I have answers!

Horse experience is not needed in order for you to experience their healing and transformation. They are here to be your guides, sages and healers.   

All activities are supervised by myself or another equine professional, and can be modified to suit your comfort level with proximity, including having a fence between you and the horse. It is up to you how much or little you’d like to engage with the horses. While this retreat is not about horsemanship, I've had clients who've healed their long time fears with horses as an extra bonus transformation. Also it's a good inner reflection to ask what this fear of horses is representing for you and how it's showing up in your life. 

What if I have no horse experience and/or am afraid of horses?

All activities with horses will be on the ground, no riding. The horses will be either haltered or at liberty in the arena, paddocks, and pasture.

Do we ride horses in this retreat?

Absolutely. What you learn and experience during an equine retreat will support, enhance and enrich any other work you are already doing. An Equine Experience is a MUST for anyone already doing their inner work. 

I already have another coach, is this for me?

Believe & See Ranch is in Maple Ridge, BC   Approximately 45KM North East of Vancouver.   As the Ranch is also my private home, the actual address and directions will be provided upon registration. We are not on a bus route, however we are just a short Uber ride away from the bus loop

Where exactly in Vancouver is Believe and See Ranch?

Please note that open toe or summer shoes of any kind will not be permitted. Safe, closed-toe shoes are a must around horses. High heels are also not permitted. The ground can sometimes be uneven, and/or present obstacles. Boots or running shoes are fine. Please don't bring your fancy shoes or anything dressy - not only will they be ruined, they may be not be permitted if not safe.
Vancouver weather can be unpredictable, if you're travelling, please make sure to pack some light rain gear. While there is a covered facility in the event of inclement weather, all work with the horses will be outside.

Do I need special clothing?

Due to the intimate nature of these retreats and to ensure each participant has proper time and attention, as well as for the safety of both humans and horses, spaces are limited. This is how I am able to ensure the best experience possible. As such, once you commit to yourself and request a spot, we commit that spot to you- it's no longer available to anyone else. For that reason no refunds are offered. 

If due to completely unforeseen and uncontrollable circumstances -  you cannot attend, please let us know and we'll happily work with you to transfer your ticket to another person or to apply your investment to a future retreat.

Is there a refund if I change my mind or can't make it?

Simply the checkout box above, and you’ll be taken to and Eventbrite check out form. You'll receive a confirmation email with directions, instructions and the waiver and release forms as required by our insurance.  Please also note that before you can confirm your place on the checkout form you will be required to read and agree to the terms and conditions of the event.
