it's time to think outside the boardroom.
At the most basic level, all skills are interpersonal communications skills, which also tends to be one of the most lacking in today's corporate environment. Horses reveal the hidden dynamics of your team. Team activities are designed to facilitate problem-solving that encourages individuals to work cohesively as a team for positive results. This unique style of horse/human interaction is an effective approach to team building and leadership development and is a powerful metaphor for the work environment. Working with horses as our cornerstone in team building, leadership & change management training, is a naturally efficient way of integrating experiential learning into your workplace.
There is no riding our teachers, all work is done on the ground, they are with us to provide answers and honest feedback. There are always three main attributes to a successful employee; knowledge, skills and experience. Knowledge can be learned, experience is gained over time, but SKILLS are the foundation of learning to be able to utilize the knowledge and experience any employee has gained.
why experiential learning?
Experiential learning has been termed "the natural way of learning,” and is defined as the process by which the experience of the learner is reflected upon, from which new insights emerge.
Immediate Learning & Feedback - Working with horses creates a unique memory that causes the participants to remember the training far longer than if sitting in 'just another classroom'.
Irrefutable Results - Your learning experience is not just in that moment but paralleled back to everyday life at the office. With experiential learning, all senses and learning styles are stimulated to allow this transfer of learning.
Collaborative vs. Competitive - Many team events are based on competition, but don’t you want your teams to work TOGETHER like a well-oiled machine! You don’t have to like every member of your team, but if you can COMMUNICATE and understand how to effectively communicate with one another, your team can be unstoppable.
Fun and Hands-On!
Fun & Memorable.
Horses have a lot to teach us, but they are also a lot like us. Herds to horses are just like teams to people. Horses require a leader that they trust and respect, just like we would love to have in the workplace. This similarity gives us the ability to parallel everything that happens to real life so that what you learn really sticks! Quite simply, the horse does the teaching; facilitators are there to offer an explanation and provide guidance as they work through the solution.
WARNING: YOUR TEAM MAY ACTUALLY ENJOY THIS team event!

Leadership is the key component to both effective team development AND effective personal growth. We must each learn to be the leader of our own lives, especially if we expect to have others trust our leadership.
By building our leadership skills, we enable more focus and a stronger intention in our words and actions. This allows us to give our team direction from within, enabling you to build future leaders, rather than employees for your competitor. Your employees, your team, your leaders, need more than a job.
Our teachers, the horses, will teach you to be your own leader, to build and maintain positive relationships, to communicate clearly and effectively. These positive relationships & communication skills enable you to bring your best self forward. Any version of your own success comes from authenticity… only you can be you.
