Team Building Events

Leadership and Team building Clinic

At Aspen Acres we offer organizations an experience they will never forget. This is not a typical team building, leadership program where we sit around in a lecture hall. This is hands on working with the animals. Designed to get people out of their daily routines and introduce them into the equine world. Horses are unique, animals that can teach trust, patients, leadership and touch each participant in a different way.

It has been a dream to share my love and appreciation of horses. Horses have been a big part of my life. Throughout the years we have worked together and developed many strong dynamic relationships. Animals have their own ways of communicating to us, we just have to learn how to relax and listen to them.

In today’s society no matter your age, gender or background, many individuals are unclear about their emotional, spiritual, and recreational believes and interests. Many of us forget we need to understand and respect our selves before we can think about our families, employment, and friends. Horses are very similar and help guide us by showing us our strengths and weakness.

Participants are partnered up with an appropriate four legged friend based on personality and body posture. Individuals learn how to work around the horses in a safe non-threatening manner. Everyone is taught how to groom and communicate with your horse. Sessions move on towards understanding body langue, and what the horse is trying to tell you. Once the group has watched a demonstration, each individual has the opportunity to work with their animal.

I have developed programs in the past to help people deal with stress, grief, relationships issues, communication barriers, physical and mental disabilities. Programs can be developed to teach, team building, leadership, and relationship skills all through hands on interaction with horses.

Sessions vary in length and cost. Factors which determine price are based on group size, the number of horses required and also the goals of the group.
