There is no riding involved and participants do not need any horse experience. All interactions with the horses will be from the ground, applying knowledge that will be shared about horse and herd behaviour.
Suitable for all types of organisation and groups up to 30 people.
We work with teams and locations across Australia.
Each EAL program is tailored to achieve the goals of each organisation and event.
Full Day or Half Day options
Can be designed as either as a stand alone event or as part of a conference or off site.

A memorable and powerful day in nature with the horses. Team members will gain deeper insights into each other, build trust and learn new ways to communicate and work towards shared goals. A fun, memorable and effective way to deepen the relationship, communication and trust in teams.
Learn how to connect, inspire and lead horses that are ‘at liberty’ (ie: free from control and restraints), through the art of communication from a place of presence, deep listening, trust and positive intention.
As you step into relationship with the horses and begin to experiment with non-verbal forms of communication and leadership styles you will receive authentic feedback from the horse in a non-judgmental and very transparent way.
Adjust and practice new ways of leading; from the front, side by side, from behind and in creating space for others to shine.
This workshop is suitable for executive and leadership teams across all industries.
It can be delivered as a stand alone event or as as experiential component of an in-house Leadership Development Program.

A one day workshop
Unplug, relax and remove yourself from the daily distractions of work and home
Unwind and connect with calm and kind horses to re- discover the beauty of trust and respect in relationships
Learn and practice life skills; awareness, deep listening, clear communication, managing emotions and stress management techniques
Horse are innately grounded beings, who have all four feet firmly on the ground. As a prey animal horses need to be alert to changes in the environment and can enter flight or flight state quickly in response to a threat in order to protect themselves. Yet equally they have survived for thousands of years as a species because they have embodied processes that release stress and allows them to ‘go back to grazing’ when the threat is over. Learn through ‘the way of the horse’ about healthy behaviours and develop greater resilience to deal with life’s challenges.

HORSES HEALING HARMONY - THE PERFECT TONIC FOR MIND, BODY AND SOUL…
You are invited to attend a unique wellbeing and personal development experience, combining Equine Assisted Learning and horse riding in a picturesque and restorative setting in the Yarra Valley. Presence is the art of being fully in the moment, not distracted by past thoughts and emotions, nor being worried/focused on future plans. Horses model the skills of living in the present moment with embodiedawareness. They are skilled at emotional regulation and keeping grounded to stay healthy and happy. The impact of being with horses in nature has a calming effect that also creates insight to support improved wellbeing.
