Resilience & Wellbeing
Employers recognise that supporting employees with training and development can reduce employee turnover and absenteeism and increase productivity.
Since 2007 our team have been working with horses to improve the wellbeing of individuals. Quiet, calm time, spent with horses, is highly beneficial for relieving stress and improving mental health and wellbeing. We run 4 - 12 week courses with attendees spending time each week at our centre. Our programmes can be highly tailored, and we can work with HR departments and occupational health providers to design a bespoke training package for your individual or company needs.
Our trainer will work with attendees in a supportive environment to look at emotional responses and coping mechanisms, expanding delegates’ practical skills and engaging in confidence building exercises.
Attendees will receive qualified support and space away from the workplace, with facilitated transfer of learning back into practical solutions and help to build a personal action plan.
Why use horses?
Using horses can help humans develop and understand the dynamics within any team. Horses are highly aware, prey animals, tuned into the moment and keen observers. By working with them, we can gain insights into our own individual and team behaviours . Our learning experiences involve horses but you don’t need any previous experience with horses and you will not be riding horses.
