Important: Team Building vs Team Recreation: Here is the difference



Discover the natural wisdom of the herd!

Horses are herd animals of prey with a keen sense of awareness. Working with horses, builds a heightened level of sensitivity and awareness.

This is not a seminar but an individually crafted session based on your objectives. Let us know your challenges in working as a team or tuning into your customer. We'll design a set of experiences tailored to meet your specific objectives.


Gain insight into the dynamics of YOUR herd!

Using the techniques of internationally acclaimed horse trainer and best-selling author Chris Irwin, your team will experience a range of exercises geared to fine-tuning communication, listening, and teamwork skills. Inexperienced riders and non-riders will work with the horses on the ground and complete a range of exercises aimed at improving communication and leadership skills.

These experiences will be debriefed by our President, Anne Thornley-Brown to uncover business applications. Anne is a skilled facilitator with an MBA from York University's Shulich school of Business and over 20 years of business experience. Anne is an avid rider who has been riding horses for pleasure for over 15 years.
