Team Building Events & Leadership Training

Breakthroughs happen here...

Have you ever tried lifting a horse?

Probably not.  But during one of our team building exercises, several work colleagues attempted this unlikely feat.

It was an obstacle course where the team was asked to lead “Jimmy” a 2000-pound Clydesdale, over an adjustable-height rail – and their “equine instructor” just wouldn’t cooperate!

Each time Jimmy knocked down the rail, they’d replace it and unsuccessfully try to lift over his big, fluffy feet.

We then prompted the team with a question. “Do you think your largest teammate may have an idea?”.  It finally occurred to the group there was no ‘rule’ preventing them from leading Jimmy over the lowered rail – which then allowed Jimmy to easily step over.

It was an “ah-ha” moment.  One that taught them to consider all viewpoints and ALL team members as well as to not impose rules that don’t exist!

Dreamwinds Team Building Events

The above story and many more prove that breakthroughs happen when you get away from your daily routine – and comfort zone.

Team building events are more than just “rah-rah” sessions to improve group dynamics and improve morale.  They can deliver instant results that promote lasting change.  Our unique approach will help build character and improve communications and allow management and employees to connect on a deeper level.

HorsePower

Horses are the masters of leadership and teamwork. The skills and behaviours needed to work successfully with our horses are the same skills and behaviours that will take your team’s performance to the next level. As you work as a team, your horse partners will act as a realtime performance review, providing honest feedback as you go.  You will not only learn, but experience what it takes to get it right creating lasting learning.

Results Driven

The foundation of our team building events is our proven experiential Equine Assisted Learning curriculum. Each exercise has been carefully developed and tested through research and is objective-based allowing us to customize your experience to meet your team’s specific needs.  You can rest assured that we will exceed your expectations as you build the skills you set out to learn through an experience you will never forget.
