Dare | Montana 2024

September 23 – 27, 2024

Nine Quarter Circle Ranch, Big Sky, Montana

I couldn’t be more excited to welcome you to the Nine Quarter Circle Ranch, where I’ve been leading Detours since 2017.  Owned and operated by the Kelsey Family for over 75 years, this working horse ranch provides a unique opportunity to access the Lee Metcalf Wilderness on horseback, some of the most spectacular country in the Lower 48!

Our retreat schedule has been designed to take full advantage of the surrounding wilderness and provide you with a unique dude ranch experience.  We will start each day with movement + rituals, and a hearty ranch breakfast, before we head out to explore on horseback. The Nine Quarter Circle Horses are bred, born, raised and trained on the ranch, with the intention of providing guests of varying riding abilities a safe and enjoyable experience. All rides are fully supported by the ranch wranglers.

Our afternoon workshops will explore our theme – Our Stories Matter – facilitated by women who inspire us.

My invitation is that you come as you are and find ways to explore and embrace your personal story, for you to see your story as greater than any past or future thing, and for you to see the beauty and joy and promise it holds today.

Note: retreat schedule is subject to change.

Travel Logistics


Bozeman International Airport | BZN

Please plan to arrive in Bozeman by 2 pm, Monday, September 23, 2024. If your schedule allows, I recommend that you arrive a day or so earlier to explore Bozeman. This will ease your travel logistics and give you time to acclimate to the elevation and time zone. The time zone in Montana for our Detour will be Mountain Standard Time (MST). The elevation in Bozeman is 4,793 feet, while the Nine Quarter Circle Ranch sits at 6,974 feel. If you do arrive early, we will arrange a time and place to pick you up in town.

Airport Shuttle

The Dare Crew and I will meet you at the Bozeman International Airport at 2:30 pm MST on Monday, September 23, 2024. From the airport, we will head to Murdoch’s Ranch & Home Supply where you will enjoy a Big Sky Welcome and be able to shop for all the things you need to cowgirl up. Murdoch’s will be generously offering all you Darlings a 20% savings on your entire purchase! From Murdoch’s we will travel in luxury coaches down Main Street Bozeman, through the Gallatin River Canyon to the Nine Quarter Circle Ranch!


We will travel back to Bozeman from the ranch on the morning of September 27th, with our arrival at the airport planned for 12:30 pm. If you book return flights on the 27th, we recommend a flight time of no earlier than 2:30 pm.


Due to the unpredictability of current global events, I require that you purchase flight insurance through the airline when you book your flights AND travel/trip cancellation insurance to cover your retreat investment. Insurance is not offered through Dare to Detour. I recommend AIG Travel Guard Insurance. AIG Travel Guard provides a variety of insurance packages for you to choose from. I ask that purchase travel insurance that includes medical coverage and emergency airlift evacuation. Proof of insurance coverage will be required one month prior to our Detour together.

Your Detour investment is fully refundable, except for a $750 non-refundable deposit, up to 31 days prior to the start of your trip.  Should you cancel within 31 days of travel, you will forfeit your investment.
