Releasing Potential for Change

Looking for a high impact, innovative solution to enhance team performance?

We empower teams to realise their full potential.

Through working with horses, our aim is to encourage a culture of trusting relationships and open communication. We create an environment that allows for the appreciation of each other’s strengths, the impact of their strengths on the team as a whole and how they can be exploited to effectively achieve common goals.

Either as a stand-alone team building event, or as an innovative addition to a broader programme, equine guided team development positively impacts productivity.

Developing the leaders people choose to follow

Are you training managers or developing leaders with presence?

Great leaders engage, inspire and motivate. They build trust and respect through authentic communication.  This requires self-awareness, resilience and clarity, plus the ability to access emotional intelligence and adapt to the needs of the moment. These core qualities are required when working with horses.

Our ‘Art of Leadership’ programme provides a powerful, experiential learning dynamic that has been proven to increase the impact of broader leadership development training. We combine hands-on exercises with short, theoretical sessions to discuss the underlying metaphors presented, including:

• Leading positions and leadership styles
• The comfort zone of employees
• Communication without a mask
• 360-degree feedback
• Trust and respect

“Gifted leadership occurs where heart and head – feeling and thought – meet.” Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence.

Why horses are effective facilitators of change

The science of equine guided learning.

Horses excel in the instinctual, sensory and emotional aspects of intelligence. They are masters of non-verbal communication, which can account for more than 90% of human interaction.

They provide immediate, accurate feedback through their acute sensitivity to non-verbal signals. In nature, the horses’ reliance on congruent leadership and good communication for their survival means they instinctively recognise your ability to act with clarity of intention.  By working with horses, people gain insight into the true nature of communication and how it significantly impacts working relationships.

Experiential learning with horses facilitates whole brain learning, involving the emotional and creative parts of the brain rather than just the logical. This stimulates change at a deep neurological level, which is why learning with horses goes in deep and “sticks”.
