a quiet or secluded place in which one can rest and relax; a period of seclusion for the purposes of prayer and meditation; a place one goes for peace.



What does that mean, you ask? With Blue Sky Sage, it means you will be in a place that can show you how to take the reins of your life back into your own hands and liberate yourself from whatever may be holding you back. With a willing horse partner to carry you, and the wide-open spaces as the dōjō, the possibilities for you to prioritize your own healing, health, and serenity of heart and mind are as vast as the blue Wyoming sky. You can hold your own space out here, whether you are meditating in the saddle or soaking up the rays of a Wyoming sunset, in the peace to be found with Mother Nature.


The horses are the masters. This is your chance to immerse yourself in a safe, challenging, joyful and supportive equine relationship, with horses that are willing to help you learn and grow in your horsemanship.  We view the horse as a working partner that can offer a path toward physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing, learning and growth. The Blue Sky Sage horses are selected and refined specifically for the challenge of open range riding, the terrain, and to be accepting of different riders.


Retreat from your day-to-day life, so you can reconnect to your better self.  Be embraced by Mother Nature under the lodgpole pines at the edge of an expansive mountain meadow, offline and off-the-grid. Life can be soothing and simple in a cozy tipi lodge that is comfortably appointed to offer privacy, and deep, restful sleep, with tranquil sounds of the night to settle your mind and calm your soul. Think of this space as your personal retreat, open for you to find your way to becoming more mindful and introspective, and where you can rejuvenate, relax, and rest.


The wide-open spaces are your dōjō. Wyoming is blessed with 100-mile vistas stretching between the horizons. Find yourself as you wander through stunning wildflowers swaying in a warm breeze. Ride and meditate as you climb a timbered mountain trail or trek across a lush, green meadow. Experience the sight of a cow moose and her calf, or hear the call of the hawk on the wing overhead. In this expansive and pristine western landscape, you can find freedom for your heart and soul.
