I am grateful to have been assistant to fellow BCH’er Cathy Woods, while she presented her “Body, Mind, Equine Program”, to attendees of the National Cowgirl Museum/Spring Round at the luxurious Paws Up Resort near Missoula, Montana. (http://www.pawsup.com/)
While at the roundup we had the pleasure of meeting and spending time with this year’s guest honorees; Elanor Green DVM, a pioneer in equine veterinary medicine and world championship horsewoman; Cathy Smith ,costume designer/artist dedicated to preserving Native American and Cowboy history and authenticity in western film making; Stacy Westfall, Nationally recognized horsewoman, competitor and clinician; .Barbara Van Cleve, award winning ranch photographer.
I feel blessed to have been in the presence of these amazing, inspiring women. They shared stories of success and defeats which truly invoked the cowgirl spirit. I had opportunities to promote BCHA and was quite surprised to find out that so many people are unaware of our organization. I was pleased share our mission with the group. Cathy’s program fit in well with the general theme of female empowerment that reflected throughout the weekend and I thoroughly enjoyed assisting her. Body, Mind, Equine explores the physical parallels as well as the conscientious and spiritual aspects of our relationships and connections with horses and each other.
This program is suitable for all levels of yogi’s and riders. Cathy‘s program can be structured as a short clinic or up to a three day retreat. Including deluxe accommodations, gourmet meals trail rides and camaraderie at guest ranches and private venues across the country. Our next scheduled retreat is in Colorado at C Lazy U Ranch May 2017. Cathy also has upcoming one day clinics in the Smoky Mountains.
You can learn more about Cathy’s programs at www.cathywoodsyoga.com or Cathy Woods Yoga on face book. We would be happy to bring the program to your venue, rendezvous or event.
