This workshop is designed to help the team think “outside the box.” Ideal for intact teams and boards, the content delivered in this workshop is challenging, practical, and experiential. You will leave with a team that communicates better, and one that can challenge the daily routine with both eyes wide open.

This session is conducted using horses as the transfer of learning. During the day, the teams will ride their equine partners through a series of team challenges. At the end of the session, the team works together in a team challenge and then creates a unique riding circuit for a group photo.

Note: Although horses are used in the transfer of learning, experience in horseback riding is not required.
