Frequently Asked Questions
Can events be customized?
Yes. We work closely with you to identify your specific needs and design an event to meet your goals.
What happens during an event?
A typical event involves guided activities with horses which facilitates opportunities for team building and leadership development. Participants explore their interactions with the horses and develop ideas for application in the workplace.
Is horse knowledge required?
No. All work is done on the ground with a focus on human skills rather than horsemanship skills. There is no riding.
Horses posses an innate ability to evaluate whether an individual can communicate, act as a partner, and lead. As prey animals they have learned who and what to trust. Therefore, they provide immediate feedback. You cannot get a horse to do something it doesn’t want to do. One must learn to communicate and partner with the horse to achieve your goals. A philosophy that holds true for every business operating today. Working with horses can be a profound adventure of self-discovery.
Why does it work?
It happens in the moment. This allows the individual to immediately change their interaction for a difference result or reinforce the behavior to re-produce the desired result.
Horses give immediate feedback about what effective leadership and teamwork is and what it is not. This interaction often moves participants outside their comfort zone so new learning can take place.
