Our Programs

Participants who attend a seminar at The Horse Institute return to their everyday environment energized and motivated. They gain insights from the horses on how they perceive, evaluate, and choose to respond to each other.

Since 2005, organizations whose staff members have benefitted directly from our programs include Bayer HealthCare, Chubb Group of Insurance Companies, Columbia Memorial Hospital, Merck & Co, Natixis, Honda, the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey Ė Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, and Wharton Executive Education at the University of Pennsylvania.

Corporate Retreats

Do you feel like you are on autopilot, stuck doing what you do well but not enjoying it as much as you used to? Or perhaps your company is losing ground to competitors, missing fantastic new opportunities because the innovation spark just isnít there?

Contact us and we will create a custom tailored 2 or 3-day retreat using horses as teaching assistants in our Hudson Valley facility.

Coming Spring 2017
New retreats: “Innovation Intensive” and “Communication Intensive” 

Team Building...

Do you want your team to plan and communicate more effectively and achieve goals faster with less effort?

Contact us to schedule a personalized 1-day team building event with horses in Westchester County or the Hudson Valley.  Everyone learns they get better results when they listen and give clear directions because the horses give them immediate, honest feedback. 

From horses, we can learn herd survival skills that have served them well for 45 to 55 million years.


Leadership Skills...

Do you have a talent or strength you could build on? Do you know someone who has a behavioral blind spot that is holding back his or her career?

Contact us to schedule a custom tailored leadership retreat for your group (1 to 3 days).  For individual leadership development, we propose a kick off session with horses at the Westchester County or Hudson Valley facility, followed by one-on-one remote executive coaching with Marie-Claude Stockl for six months.

Horses add to the process because they need a strong leader for survival. Working with the horses gives everyone a chance to lead, and focus on what matters most.

There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man. - Sir Winston Churchill
