Our goal is to provide each client with a meaningful and enriching experience that supports their individual journey toward self-discovery, growth, and connection with their true nature.

Our programs are designed for individuals, families, and groups/teams of all backgrounds and ages, with no previous horse experience required. Activities are conducted on the ground, emphasizing connection and communication with horses without riding or horsemanship.

As a Certified Equine Assisted Learning Specialist, Carol Marriott guides participants to become aware of their energy and emotions while interacting with the horses. Horses provide clear, immediate, and authentic feedback, helping individuals gain insights into unconscious patterns and develop alternative skills to navigate life challenges.

You'll find rustic, comfortable accommodations, wholesome meals, nature trails, and the companionship of our gentle horses and friendly dogs and cats. Retreat options include organized workshops, custom-designed stays, or personalized retreats tailored to your needs.

Carol Marriott brings a wealth of experience in leadership, human resources, and program development, combined with her lifelong passion for horses. As your personal life coach, Carol will support you in achieving your goals and overcoming obstacles in various areas of your life.

Join us at Ravenheart for a transformative experience amidst the beauty of nature and the wisdom of horses. As Canadian singer Connie Kaldor once said, "It's off the beaten track but I am sure you'll find your way."
