FIREFLY HORSE CO.
WELLNESS RETREAT CENTER
Firefly Horse Co. is unique from other traditional horse barns and therapy practices in many ways!
Our desire is to bring horses and their healing abilities to the general public. Taking lessons, camps, or therapy at Firefly goes to the deepest level of connection between horse and rider.
We use principles of natural horsemanship and include learning and therapeutic counseling principles that allow for presence, connection, and balance.
The relationship between horse and rider goes so much deeper than just learning a skill. It takes patience, persistence, and attentiveness to the needs of the horse as well as awareness of one’s own emotional and physical needs.
Located in Northwestern Montana
Firefly is centrally located on 24 pristine acres with mountain views in Columbia Falls, Montana near the cities of Whitefish, Kalispell, & Bigfork.
West Glacier National Park, Whitefish Resort, and Flathead Lake are just a 30-minute drive away!
Firefly has it all from therapy services, to riding lessons, guest experiences, lodging, and venue space for your next event!
Join us in all the activities we have to offer.
