In 2015, at the first ever Cowgirl Re-union, best friends Stefanie Travers, artist, mentor and horsewomen extraordinaire and Alexa Linton, animal intuitive, Equine Sport Therapist, teacher and author, came together with fifteen incredible women and their horses for three full days of adventure, connection and frolic. In the middle of it all, they looked at each other with awe and tears in their eyes as they realized that what they had created, The Cowgirl Re-union, had taken on a life of it’s own.
Cowgirl Up, Island Style!
Due to Island interest and in the spirit of all cowgirls on the “Rock” we have decided to bring the all the sassy shenanigans all to you! We will be exploring the Spirit of what the Iconic Cowgirl is; spunky, courageous, feminine, tough, playful and sweet with plenty of horse time, play time and hang time! Look forward to guided bareback meditations on your horse designed to allow feel and presence to permeate your connection with your equine partner. A ‘treasure’ hunt full of laughs and camaraderie, Art and dress up with your horse, attunement and deepening of your connection to Earth and self, the amazing ‘Tickle Trunk” of Audrey ‘Sassy Six Guns” for dress up and sass up like you’ve never done before, we are working on the logistics of the six gun play….stay tuned as we work those out! If this Island version is ANYTHING at all like the Original Interior or Guest Ranch Version…and we think it juuuust may be….hold onto to your hats, grab a handful of mane and lean into a wild, riotously good time with kindred spirits and our beloved horses!.
Yes it’s true. This Island Edition Cowgirl Re-union is happening in Duncan, BC from May 25-28th, 2017!
It’s time to find your self in the saddle. So strap on your chaps, load up your horses, and get your inner cowgirls over to Maple Grove Farm! It’s time for us to let our hair down, get wild, and ride head-long to wherever our cow ponies take us.
See you in May!!
Alexa and Stefanie
