Running Wild Retreat

Wild Horse Gentling Clinic with Mustang Maddy

June 23-30, 2018

Retreat Host: The Great Escape Mustang Sanctuary / 42132 Ridge Road
Deer Trail, CO 80105

In our first ever “Running Wild Retreat,” Mustang Maddy will be partnering with the Great Escape Mustang Sanctuary to select 6 untouched, wild horses to teach participants about her unique process for gentling wild horses. 

Receive one-on-one personalized instruction from Maddy for 7 days of intensive, hands-on work. Instruction is all-inclusive, starting with achieving the first touches all the way to trailer loading and preparing to ride. Maddy’s program is built on trust, free will and two-way communication; in just 7 days, you’ll discover how to build a relationship with a wild horse without flooding, trauma or force.

Though founded on Maddy’s experiences with mustangs, these methods are also valuable to rescue and rehabilitation projects, colt starting and even high levels of performance riding.

Throughout the week, you’ll be fully immersed in the wild horse experience! Enjoy a personal cabin situated on 1,000 acres of sanctuary pasture and home to bands of wild horses. Evening activities include Western dancing, wild horse tours and trail rides.

At the end of the 7 full days of learning, will be final celebration on Saturday which will include a live auction and showcase to help place these mustangs in suitable homes. Bidding will be open to the public and all proceeds will go toward The Great Escape Mustang Sanctuary.
