Starr Horse Retreats


Venue for Transformation

Starr Horse Retreats and Arenas
Minden, Nevada 

Starr Horse Retreats and Arenas (SHRA) is a venue for healing retreats, training, and equine-assisted education using positive reinforcement (R+) ridership techniques. We work with horses advocating for their needs and care, and we work with humans through the horses. We understand that healing humanity heals the earth.

Our 30-acre equestrian facility is located in Minden, Nevada, and has four arenas, a 10-stall horse barn, a workshop room, three guest houses, a Gathering Grounds with a sweat lodge, tipi, immersion tub, fire pit, and 30 acres of pasture with multiple obstacle courses and moguls for walking and riding. 

Our unique equine healing modalities illustrate parallel issues of trust, forgiveness, and threshold limits. Through our retreats, we explore emotional intelligence skills for mindful decision-making and past grief healing. Some of our unique modalities include free liberty meditation with the horses, sound healing, ecstatic dancing with horses, barnyard yoga, animal Reiki, sweat lodge, flower bath, and positive reinforcement ridership workshops and clinics. 

We invite participants to explore the possibilities with us as we tap into the innate healing abilities of the horses and honor them as shamans in their role of awakening our consciousness.
