Retreat client testimonials:
“The morning I spent with the horses at Triple Play Farm was transformational. Working with the horses taught me so much about being in the moment and trusting my instincts. With the guidance of Rosie Molinary and Kris Batchelor, I pushed past resistance and had a one-of-a-kind experience. I think about my time with the horses often and how amazed, grateful and empowered I felt earning their trust and having the opportunity to interact with such majestic creatures. The lessons I learned during Unbridled Authenticity continue to shape my experiences. I’ll definitely be signing up for another workshop." – Jodi H., Charlotte, NC
“Mere words can’t express my gratitude for the amazing opportunity to participate in the Unbridled Authenticity Retreat! It was such an extremely powerful day for me. I was immensely touched by your knowledge, compassion, listening, and observation skills. Plus, your example of “soft but deliberate” communication style, opened my eyes to my non verbal communication style and that I don’t have to yell for respect. Also, that finding a balance is worth the effort. It was quite unbelievable that you offered your most prized treasure, Monarch, and it will be never forgotten. For you and Monarch gave me such a valuable gift. The gift of courage, leadership and not to give up on my dream of horsemanship. Your words, “I am enough”, were so profound. I learned that comparison ruins happiness and to focus on trotting my own course."
"Kris, you helped me find my strength by turning fear into power into peace. By dancing with my fear, it helped me to acquire self confidence with steps toward self reliance. It was such a breakthrough, that I am overwhelmed with courage. Change began with a choice, thanks for creating a new story in my life. The gift of the retreat will never be forgotten and deeply treasured.” – Pam O., Marvin, NC
