You are here because you are looking for change and growth for yourself, team, or company. You are looking for something new and engaging. Traditional methods are not appealing. You want a different setting, an experiential in the moment encounter.

You may be met with resistance from your team or even your own doubts. Change can feel uncomfortable and fear the unknown. You are not alone in these feelings.

Equine assisted therapy has been shown to improve self awareness, impulse control, and decision making skills. It builds communication skills, assertiveness, and emotional awareness. This results in increased self esteem, improved relationship satisfaction, and increased productivity. You will experience a connection, growth, and healing as the horses respond to you. They are extremely attuned to their surroundings and the people in those surroundings. Horses react to what they sense in their environment. You will gain new perspectives as you process reactions and create metaphors from activities with the horses. You do not have to have experience with horses. There is no riding during sessions. All the work is done on the ground. A counselor and equine specialist will participate in the session with you.

Equine assisted learning workshops and team building is available to help you improve your company’s bottom line or your team’s wins. Participants will experience building connections as they work together to achieve tasks, identify barriers, and problem solve. Say a little more… What do workshops look like? When are they offered?
