The overall experience at H.U.G.S Ranch was phenomenal! The patience and abstract communication we had to use to guide these amazing animals really translate to so many important strategies that we have to utilize in the world of business!

  • What sets H.U.G.S apart from other team-building programs?
    At H.U.G.S, our approach goes beyond traditional team building. Our Equine Assisted Learning sessions provide a profound and transformative experience by leveraging the unique bond between horses and humans. Participants gain valuable insights into their own behaviors and how they interact within a team context, fostering personal growth and team cohesion.
  • What specific skills can our team develop through Equine Assisted Learning?
    Equine Assisted Learning offers a wide range of benefits, including improved communication, problem-solving, leadership, trust-building, and emotional intelligence. These essential life skills can be transferred to the workplace and enhance team dynamics.
  • What is Equine Assisted Learning (EAL)?
    Equine Assisted Learning is a unique approach that involves interactive activities with horses to promote personal and professional development. Through guided exercises and reflection, participants gain valuable insights into communication, leadership, and teamwork.
  • How many people can you accommodate in a session?
    Our sessions are designed to provide personalized attention and engagement. We can work with groups of 6-10 people at a time to ensure a meaningful and impactful experience. If you have a larger group, we can arrange multiple sessions on different days to accommodate everyone effectively.
  • What is the duration of a typical team building session?
    Our half-day team-building sessions are designed to be approximately 3.5 hours long, including lunch. However, we are flexible and can customize the duration based on your team's requirements.
  • Is horseback riding involved in the sessions?
    No, all activities are conducted on the ground to ensure an inclusive experience for everyone. No prior horse experience is necessary to participate.
  • Is any prior experience with horses required?
    No, our Equine Assisted Learning sessions are designed for individuals with all levels of horse experience. Our certified facilitators will guide you through the activities, making it accessible and enjoyable for everyone.
  • Are the activities safe?
    Yes, safety is our top priority. Our facilitators are experienced in working with horses and guiding participants through the activities in a controlled environment. We carefully select well-trained horses that are accustomed to human interaction to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.
  • What should we wear during the sessions?
    Please dress appropriately for the weather, as most activities take place outdoors. We recommend comfortable clothing and require closed-toe shoes. Additionally, we have an indoor, unheated arena available for use.
  • How do we schedule a team building session with H.U.G.S?
    Scheduling a session is easy! Simply contact us through our website or give us a call to discuss your team's needs and preferences. We will work together to customize a team building experience that aligns with your goals and schedule.
