Why Horses?

The horses have a big role to play and are a critical differentiator in the training we provide. Horses are looking for leadership and need to be part of a herd with well functioning social structure. For them it is a matter of survival.

When working with us, they consider us part of their herd and need to feel safe in order to cooperate and accept our leadership, They are looking for the same kind of leader that we are. Someone who is confident, communicates clearly and consistently and has compassion and understanding. They are highly perceptive and they’ll provide an honest, real-time performance review. They play no politics when you’re off track, and they respond positively when you get it right!

We often don’t recognize these qualities in ourselves, but the horses do. And our trained facilitators can help you understand their reactions, and apply the learning back to the office. Participants listen! They want to have success with the horse which leads to tremendous growth in self awareness of development areas, a strong desire to develop the right behaviours and the opportunity to implement those changes and be immediately rewarded by the horse. The experience is unforgettable and the learning sticks.

How Does It Work?

Our proven Equine Assisted Learning curriculum is at the core of these transformational experiences. Each exercise is objective-based, and has been carefully developed and tested in research for effectiveness in creating behavioural change. These are then combined to deliver unforgettable and high impact training and team building events that create lasting results.

I have over 20 years of experience leading high performing teams in the public and private sectors. I bring together my knowledge and experience of horses and the challenges corporate teams and leaders face to build programs that deliver results. Our team of certified EAL (Equine Assisted Learning) Facilitators have also been chosen for their passion, professionalism and diverse backgrounds. We get it – we have walked in your shoes.
