Discover the Equine Connection

In our team building sessions, the focus is not on horsemanship or riding – it's all about intentional activities designed to cultivate problem-solving skills and foster cohesive teamwork. Witness how horses, through their innate sensitivity, reflect the essence of effective leadership and collaboration.

The Team

Certified in Equine Assisted Learning, our skilled team seamlessly blends horse-human interaction into a powerful metaphor for the work environment. The horses become co-facilitators in your emotional growth, creating "teachable moments" that leave a profound impact. Lisa and Abbey will lead your team through immersive experiences where individuals and groups develop essential relationship and life skills.
