If you are looking for additional innovative training tools to add to your Trainers Toolbox, this is a Must Attend workshop!
Why Should I Attend this Workshop?

The presence of horses creates a context for competency-building that enlarges capacity for deep thoughtfulness, clarified intention, and collaborative work.

Content is framed in "ground work" with horses (no riding), and focuses on presence, non-verbal communication, trust-respect-appreciation, inclusion, innovation, strategic thinking, leadership, relationship, emotional intelligence and more!

Participants engage in safe, practical activites that embed larning "naturally." SKILLS DEVELOPMENT with horses demonstrably deepens and enhances learning becasue horses:

  • Mirror what humans think and feel in the moment, so we learn extraordinary things about ourselves.
  • Expand human capacity by heightening awareness so that we tap fully into our sensation and intuition to access more choices.
  • Teach us to slow down, be present and focus on intention, behavior, communication.
  • Bring a new dimension of power, wonder, beauty and freedom to our lives.
