"Writing + Riding" Colorado, USA

“Writing + Riding” Colorado, USA


Jun 7-10, 2019

If you’ve got a story you’re working on or have been aching to tell, this is the trip for you. Our popular Colorado “Riding + Writing” retreat combines an incredible non-fiction, memoir and poetry workshop (tailored to your individualized needs) with some of Colorado’s best offerings: horseback riding in the Rocky Mountains and whitewater rafting.

This popular Colorado-based tour combines creative writing workshops with horseback riding through the Rocky Mountains. This short weekend-long tour begins on a Friday and runs through Monday. Saturday features a 2-hour workshop where we talk about the art of storytelling and finding our creative voices, and also share what we are currently working on or hoping to tackle. Over the weekend we will flex these creative muscles when it comes to writing, while also taking in all that gorgeous Denver has to offer and horseback riding.

Join us as we tap into our creative side, let that energy flow onto the page and hone our craft in this fun-filled 3-day adventure.

DAY 1: writing + story

After airport pickups, Day 1 will begin with a writing workshop to work on crafting your voice and finding direction for your story.

Later in the evening, enjoy a city tour before dinner.




DAY 2: writing + riding

After making breakfast in our gorgeous mansion, we’ll start the day with another writing workshop to help us continue to stay in our creative state.

Afterwards, continue working on your story or discuss things like finding an agent, getting published and promoting your story.

This afternoon, we’ll enjoy a picnic lunch before we go horseback riding in the Rocky Mountains.

And, we’ll take a visit to the iconic hotel from The Shining.

The morning will begin with a third writing prompt and some time for quiet reflection. But this afternoon, get ready for some adventure –we’re going white-water rafting down the Colorado River!

After rafting, we will return home to relax before dinner.



  1. This trip was amazing, from start to finish. Kelly was amazing and made sure everyone felt comfortable, even an introvert like me. After only a short time, the group felt like a reunion of old friends; we never stopped laughing. I can’t recommend Damesly enough!
