The Retreat

Your host is Rebecca Mickleburgh, a graduate from Chelsea College of Art.  Rebecca visited the ranch in 2007 and has never looked back, the ranch evoked such creativity in Rebecca she became determined to pass this experience onto other artists who, like her, have a passion for everything equine.



Rebecca will guide you through your stay with the professional Resident Artist who will typically be on hand during your stay to discuss techniques and all things creative with you.

This Retreat is designed to accommodate as many preferences as possible, If your partner would like to join you on the holiday but not partake in any of the Equine Artist Retreat, that’s also fine, there are other fantastic Activities available.

The minimum age is 18. If you are travelling solo, there are no single supplements making this an ideal singles holiday.
