Letting go . . .

Are you ready to let go of what no longer allows you to be free, to be you, and discover the strengths within you?

“Linda is a beautiful coach. She is attentive and stays present moment to moment. Linda communicates a safety and also an ability to stay with her client in the midst of uncertainty, helping to bring understanding and awareness.” ~ Mary – Summit, WI

“June’s presence is truly powerful.  She is patient and intuitive and has a wonderful equine connection”  -~AA from Arizona


There is no better place than the breathtaking mountains of Montana. You will be pampered with home cooked meals, massages, the fuzzy muzzle of a horse, and that much sought after peace and quiet.  You will gain strength and courage through the horses, your coaches, and riding in this beautiful, empowering country.  This is an opportunity to learn what in your life no longer serves you and nourish what does.  Grit and grace go hand in hand in transforming your dreams.

Equine Gestalt Coaches and life- long horse women, June Voldseth and Linda Bruce have created an experience where you will learn to connect, grow, and let go in the presence of a horse. Horses are beautiful listeners and teachers. They bring into our awareness what we already know, without judgment or prejudice.

Our Cowgirl Retreat is for anyone interested in change.  Are you searching for deeper meaning in your life?  Looking for a new career path?  Are you experiencing a significant life transition?  Searching for hope?  Or maybe in need of healing after a rough relationship or loss of a loved one?  Or simply ready to let go and live a more fulfilled life?  

We believe you have within YOU everything you have been seeking. 


Sunday evening we’ll enjoy a delicious home cooked dinner and take time to get to know each other. The following days will include experiential learning with our horses on the ground and riding.  Other times, we will be off and riding this big beautiful country. Enrich your experience with a private coaching session and a relaxing massage.

COACHING:  Private coaching is a trusting relationship between the coach, you, and the horse in which the coach gives the power to you and empowers you with courage.  Your coach is working for the horse, and the horse is working for you.  

HORSESYou will connect with horses on the ground at different levels and experience riding in beautiful Montana.  Come and meet the herd. 

RIDING:  Part of the charm of Bonanza Creek is the rugged beautiful country we get to ride, and part of the letting go and healing  is spending time on a horse and soaking in the strength of the mountains and the forests.  To best enjoy and have fun, everyone needs to have riding experience and be able to canter outside an arena.

June Voldseth started Bonanza Creek Guest Ranch in 1993. It was a way for her to spend time with two of her passions, horses and people. But life stepped in with much more. Not only has the guest ranch been a fun adventure, but a learning, inspiring, empowering, life changing one.  At the perfect time, along came awareness of the Touched By A Horse life coaching program and the opportunity to truly make Bonanza Creek a place to learn to live your dreams.

June has a love of people, horses, cattle, dogs, and the outdoors, especially the mountains of Montana. She is a working ranch wife, mother of 3, and “nana” to 8 grandkids. She is a graduate of Montana State University and a certified coach with the Touched By A Horse program.
