Red Horse Mountain Ranch

All-Inclusive Dude Ranch in Northern Idaho

Reconnect with your partner

Spark meaningful conversation

Experience the thrill of adventure

When you’re focused on growing your company and career, it’s easy to lose touch with your partner. Does it ever feel like…

  • You’re coasting along on occasional date nights and distracted conversations?
  • The relationship takes a backseat to the business?
  • You are speaking two different languages?
  • Things are okay, but could be better?

“What a long day. I’m exhausted and still have work to do. Can we postpone our dinner date?”

“Sure, we can go next week. I just don’t want our relationship taking a backseat to the business.”

“Thanks for understanding. I do want to spend time together, but the business needs me right now.”

I feel like we’re in a good place. But imagine if we took a week away – just the two of us – that would be amazing.

OR...

“Why do we have the same argument over and over again?”

“I don’t know. I do sometimes feel like you don’t understand what I’m trying to say.

“It’s like we’re speaking two different languages. We’re talking…but not really hearing each other.”

I’d like to learn how to communicate in a better way and break that pattern.

OR...

“We’ve been so busy. It’s almost like we’re living two separate lives. Are we okay?”

“We’re okay, but I know we could be better. I miss feeling like we’re a kickass team. Knowing you have my back and taking on the world together.”

“And having fun while we do it! I miss that sense of playfulness we used to have.”

“We could have it again. We just need to find the time to spend with each other. Let’s go on adventure together.”

Entrepreneurs, executives, business owners, and community leaders are changing the world for the better every day.

But the demands of work can overshadow our personal relationships. Even with a strong bond, you and your partner will drift apart if you don’t invest invest time and attention in each other.

At the Couples Retreat, you'll get the time and space you need to refocus on your most important relationship.

“The experience my wife and I shared at the Couples Retreat at Red Horse Ranch has been life changing. The week filled with fun, adventure, learning, sharing and socializing has taken our relationship to the next level of appreciation for one another. It was a week which will live within us for our life time together.”

Our Venue

Red Horse Mountain Ranch is an all-inclusive dude ranch near Lake Coeur d’Alene, Idaho (which has a small airport). Many guests fly into Spokane, Washington, which is a beautiful 2-hour drive away.

Everyone who has been to the Ranch will say there’s something magical about it. The natural beauty, the horses, the ability to disconnect from technology, the time together, and the incredible staff that manage the facility combine to make it a unique experience.

“I was pushed well outside my comfort zone mentally, physically and emotionally…having a blast the entire time. I was able to meet amazing entrepreneurial couples from all over the world…I had a pretty strong relationship with my spouse coming into the retreat, we learned a lot about one another and went home even stronger.”

Sunny and Ann Sheuff

Sunny and Ann Sheu

Ann and Sunny, visionary entrepreneurs and parents, have spent over five years developing and refining Mpowered Families—a program that equips business and family leaders with the tools, space, and structure they need to create an engaged, connected family without sacrificing the success of their business.

After running multiple businesses, Ann and Sunny quickly realized that business success didn’t automatically equal family success, and in order to have the family life they wanted, they needed to prioritize their family like they were their businesses.

Now, through Mpowered Families, Ann and Sunny equip other high-achieving couples with the tools, space, and structure they need to be intentional family leaders so that their families never become casualties of their business.

Ann Sheu is a seasoned entrepreneur on a mission to empower others to build better lives, businesses, and communities. Ann has witnessed first-hand the chaos a poorly-run business can inflict on the home. When it came time for her to strike out on her own, she pledged to live a more intentional life for the sake of her own family and business. For nearly 20 years, she’s done just that—building one successful venture after another and serving others as a consultant, advisor, board member, and coach.

Trained at Southern Methodist University in business (B.B.A., 2005), dispute resolution (M.A., 2008), and law (J.D., 2011), Ann brings a wealth of holistic insight to every organization she touches—others’ and her own. A certified EOS implementer, Ann combines market-tested principles with practical tools to drive peak performance. As a result of her expertise, Ann’s clients have reaped over $100 million in combined revenue growth.

For Ann, financial growth is only one metric for measuring a business or individual’s success. Far more important, in her eyes, are those personal metrics that make for a successful life: meaning, vision, values, mission. Ann’s coaching and consulting has always treated individuals as whole persons, because she knows that success in the workplace and in the home go hand-in-hand. You can’t have one without the other.

Sunny Sheu comes from a family of hard-working entrepreneurs. He received his best training from decades of helping to grow the family business from a small toy shop inside a bazaar to a multi-location furniture retail operation called BT Furnishings.

Sunny is constantly looking for opportunities to bring new insights and opportunities into his and others’ businesses. He is a member and former Dallas chapter president of Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) as well as a member of the Dallas Mustang YPO chapter. He is a constant learner, attending various learning programs such as Stagen Leadership Academy, Strategic Coach, and EO’s Entrepreneurial Master’s program.

Sunny and Ann live in Dallas, TX with their 3 children. When he’s not working, Sunny enjoys mountain biking, racing cars, go karting, and snowboarding.
