Our wellness & empowerment programs are mindful and empowering get-togethers for yourself, for you and your friends, or for your next workplace outing! We will focus on the objectives we need to strengthen and realign ourselves, our intentions, and our goals to reignite the power within! Our horses provide a unique opportunity for personal growth as they are non-judgemental, honest and encourage us to become better versions of ourselves.
The Power of Pause:
Sometimes we just need time to pause, to clear our thoughts, to live in the moment and to have the opportunity to fill up our own personal cup or tool kit. An empowering day of awareness and renewal for women who want a "pause day" to recharge and reignite the power within.
This women's retreat is designed for women to take time to invest in themselves – me, myself, and I. It's all about Being True, Being Authentic and Being You! Join a group of like-minded women on an empowering journey, learning to move forward in life with courage, joy and authenticity.

A Day To Recharge
The Power of Pause
Sometimes we just need time to pause, to clear our thoughts, to live in the moment and to have the opportunity to fill up our own personal cup or tool kit. This day of awareness and renewal, is was designed for women who want a pause day to recharge and reignite the power within. Reconnect with yourself, enjoy being outdoors and partnering with horses to bring unforgettable learning to life. Working on the ground (no horse experience needed), in a safe, fun, and comfortable arena with like minded ladies. This program will focus on the objectives we need to strengthen and realign ourselves, our intentions, and our goals to move forward. Horses do not have the ability to judge, however, they have the ability to provide honest feedback and constantly remind us of the importance of being present and true to ourselves.
Why horses?Horses are prey animals and require clear, authentic leadership. Horses do not judge – they simply provide honest, constant responses to individual and or group energy, intention, and body language. Through our objective-based programs, we work alongside you, with our horses to build your leadership skills in the arena, providing unforgettable learning for life.
Do I need experience with horses?Absolutely not. Our program does not require you to ride a horse, so no prior experience is necessary. We always put safety first and we will accommodate your comfort level around the horses.
We live in Saskatchewan, what happens in cases of inclement weather?We have both outdoor and indoor arenas. However, extreme weather conditions can make the day unpleasant for both the horses and the people attending. In inclement weather conditions, we will work with you to reschedule.
Do I have to wear certain clothing?Although cowboy hats and boots aren’t required (but may add to the experience), we do have certain safety requirements when it comes to your clothing. Simple things like closed toed shoes and wearing comfortable clothes that you are okay with getting a little dusty.
What group sizes do you work with?Honestly, the group size really depends on what program you are taking and the services you are requesting. Please contact us to find out how we may accommodate your special group.
Are you certified & insured?Yes, I have two Equine Assisted Learning Facilitator Certifications.

Need a little more information? Join us for a Meet and Greet or request a connection call.If you tell me, it is an essay. If you show me, it is a story. Like a lot of people, I am a visual learner, so I personally invite you to book a private Meet and Greet and see how Equine Assisted Learning may benefit you. During this visit, you will tour the facility, learn about the objective-based exercises, meet the team, and have an opportunity to learn about our engaging programs that we may customize just for you.

Mindful vs MindFULL
Meditation With Horses
Horses are extremely sensitive and insightful animals that offer the gift of coherence. Meditation with horses provides a unique experience to connect with yourself and the present moment while relaxing and allowing yourself to slow down. Horses only live in the present moment and are experts in being mindful and practicing self-care, for their own survival. Meditation with horses encourages us to become grounded, focussed and rejuvenated, in a beautiful outdoor rural setting, only minutes from Regina.
Organize a mindful get together for your friends or incorporate this wellness experience into your next workplace outing. We also have half day and full day Mindful Leadership programs available.
“My time at R Connections allowed me to slow down, reflect and recognize the strengths and opportunities for me in my professional role and also in my personal life. The exercises reveal new things, but more importantly bring you back to your core being, who you are, and what others value about you. It has offered me new skills and techniques to navigate my day that have not only proven to be effective, but also so easy that I don’t even realize I am doing them. I would recommend any woman who has the opportunity to take advantage of these courses to do so with an open heart and an open mind, you will not regret it.”
