Team Building Sessions
Horses have the ability to influence people in incredibly powerful ways. The benefits of the work ethic, responsibility, assertiveness, communication and healthy relationships have long been recognised when working with horses. Horses very naturally provide these opportunities.
BUT WHY HORSES?
Horses are large and powerful, which creates a natural opportunity for some to overcome fear and develop confidence. The size and power of a horse can be naturally intimidating to many people. Accomplishing a task, in spite of those fears, creates confidence and provides for wondertul metaphors when dealing with other intimidating and challenging situations in life and the workplace.
Horses are much like humans in that they are social animals. They have defined roles within their herds. They would rather be with their peers. They have distinct personalities, attitudes and moods. An approach that works with one horse, won't necessarily work with another. At times they can seem stubborn or defiant. They like to have fun. In other words horses provide great opportunities for metaphoric learning.
HORSES ARE RESPONSIVE TO NON VERBAL COMMUNICATION, AS ARE PEOPLE.
When we hear that "the horse is stubborn. The horse doesn't like me" etc. by changing our behaviour, the horse may respond differently. Team building sessions provide great opportunities for everyone to explore their own roles within a team, and to look at their strengths and weaknesses. They provide an opportunity to blook at things from a different perspective and to challenge some of our fears. And above all - they are fun! Come along for a day away from the workplace in a beautiful setting where you can build on your teams abilities, or come with a particular issues that you would like to explore with us and the horses.
