Why Horses

Whether you are looking for innovative leadership, experiential team building or executive coaching programs, we can help, and give you great results. Founded in 2005, The Horse Institute is a pioneer in the field of Equine Assisted Learning. There is no riding, which means that everyone can enjoy learning from the horses.

Activities with horses are combined with more traditional assessment and coaching tools. Horses are an important part of the process because they give honest, immediate feedback on communication, and they model good herd behavior – a crucial skill in today’s working environment where we need to navigate the dynamic equilibrium between independence and interdependence.

Our participants say they develop greater skills in the areas of:

  • Awareness of self and others
  • Communication
  • Problem Solving
  • Innovation
  • Cultural Sensitivity
  • Relationship management
