Zapata Ranch

April 30 – May 7, 2023

Connect to yourself and your horse through the practice of yoga led by Tammy Pate.

The Program

Tammy’s retreats are designed to bring awareness of mental and physical balance through yoga practice and above all, gain confidence and improve your horsemanship. Everything you will do at the retreat is designed to gently bring about the inner balance that improves your ability to bond with and communicate with horses.

You will learn: how to increase your Inner Balance through yoga practice; how to be in the proper frame of mind before working with your horse; how to be aware of your physical and mental state before working with your horse; a situational approach to riding safely in the wilderness; the behavioral aspects of horse training; and gain confidence through self work in yoga, horsemanship lessons and positive experiences riding horseback in nature.

About Tammy

Born into a Montana ranching family, Tammy’s grandmother instilled in her the values of ranching life, a deep respect for nature and the practical skills needed to succeed. Tammy married Curt and together they deepened their horsemanship and developed innovative, gentle, and effective stockmanship skills.

Over the years, Tammy discovered yoga and its parallels to horsemanship. She has hosted dozens of horsemanship and yoga retreats across the United States and abroad. Tammy’s goal in her horsemanship and yoga retreats is to help women gain confidence—confidence in the saddle, but also in their everyday lives. In 2018 she founded Art of the Cowgirl, a non-profit organization with a mission to provide funding for educational opportunities for emerging artists.


$3885 per person includes all lodging, activities, instruction, and meals. Taxes and gratuity not included.

Zapata Ranch

Set back in a shady cotton woodgrove beneath the majestic 14,000-foot peaks of the Sangre De Cristo Mountains lies the historic Zapata Ranch headquarters and lodge, which was established in the late 1800’s. Elk, mule deer, migratory birds, eagles, and black bear also call this area home. The rooms are beautifully furnished and have an elegant southwestern decor that gives them the feel of home. All rooms have individual tiled bathrooms and views that are private, peaceful, and beautiful in any season.
