FORGET WHAT YOU KNOW
ABOUT TEAM BUILDING

Equine Assisted Team Development is about growing trust between people. Without trust we cannot be a team. Using our Lusitano horses as guides you will meet a team member like you have never had before. Someone who doesn't care what your title is or which car you drive. Someone who has zero respect for your jobdescription or yearlong education. He only cares about how you make him feel.

The basics


We use horses to assist us in growing the team based on the fundamental reason that a horse cannot lie. He can only be honest and mirror what he feels and what he see. So when we work with horses we have to feel and see him in order for him him to trust us - and follow us. If you can make a horse follow you voluntarily because of the way you make him feel, you can do anything you want in this world. 

TRUST


Trust is the foundation of any good relationship. However earning and growing trust in a team requires more than simply showing up at the office everyday and the casual friday or Christmas party. It grows out of sharing emotional experiences where both have to give a bit of who they are to the other one in order to make something happen. Trust is about feeling.



FEEL


How we feel in a team is based on emotions and trust. If we trust we feel safe. When we feel safe we dare to open ourselves and when we open up for whats inside, innovation, creativity and enthusiasm has a space. If we are seen and heard we feel respected for who we are and that in return allows for more trust. The stronger that bond is the further we dare to move ourselves and our team.



COMMUNICATE


The base for both trust and feel can be strengthened and weakened by how we communicate. We highly depend on verbal communication between humans, and in a fast corporate world non-verbal communication is almost non-existent. However it's also 93% of what makes us trust and feel good - or bad - in a team. That is why we teach you to se eye to eye. Literally speaking.



Beginning with our Foundation Workshop we teach your team to trust, feel and communicate in a way that challenges most and moves all. 

We make way for trust to be a welcome help to accomplish the exercises we work through. Making communication every things it normally is not, and being creative in a speechless way, we then allow the horse to take center stage and test the skills.

In return he mirrors the team and allows me to interpret his responses into words. Framed in a setting where the Equine Group Dynamics are always at play, we take the entire team to a new level where Building the Team is no longer about who climbed the highest wall or ran faster, but who contributed more to the succes of the entire team.

After this program is complete we Step it Up.

The Equine Coach


Because the Lusitano horses we work with are able to assist in so many ways, this is a tailormade program. We can addapt it to individuals and teams, base it on developing personal skils or target specific team challenges and grow new skills for. 

Individual session durations

Let's work together!

The programs have a frame that allows us to adapt our programs around your team and specific challenges, wants or needs. In working with live animals we get unexpected input that can take us further than planned and as a whole your team and me and my team of horses will finish on a note that leaves none of us indefifferent.

Our workshops at standard suits maximum 12 people.
For larger groups please inquire as we can make almost anything happen.
