Columbus/Cincinnati:  To Feel More in Control, Take the Reins

Sat. March 9 10-5, join nationally-known author and therapist Dr. Karen Gail Lewis on a mini-Unique Retreat at First Farm Inn, 20 minutes outside of Cincinnati in Kentucky’s rolling hills. A half day of workshop will match a half day of horseback riding, focused on centering and finding your balance on your horse and in your own body.  Join a small group of women for great food, horsey fun and professional guidance to find some clarity, balance and strength you might not know that you have within. 

A dressage rider, Jen Warner has been teaching horsewomanship based on the concepts of centered and balanced riding for 15 years, after several decades in corporate communication. A professional ventriloquist will entertain us during a tasty healthy lunch.

Get some girlfriends together for an unforgettable day or gift it to yourself.  Extend your retreat with overnight accommodations.  No riding experience required.
