Leadership Development & Team Building Workshops

customizable equine-assisted learning opportunities for leadership teams and small groups

The Stableminded Leadership Workshops offer memorable and beneficial team-building equine-assisted learning experiences.

Set in the beautiful Pennsylvania countryside home to Honey Brook Stables, participants will have the opportunity to be hands-on with our horse partners. Activities include practical horsemanship skills, from grooming to leading a horse to liberty connections, which provides the framework for learning how the brain-body-relationship connection impacts the way we relate to others and respond to life circumstances.

Utilizing a trauma-informed developmental neuroscience model and the relationship principles found effective in helping humans and horses connect in ways that heal and transform both. This experience is not only fun but also beneficial to overall well-being and cultivating deeper connections with each other!

Through this kind of unique experience, participants will learn and gain:

  • how relationships can be sabotaged by interactions (great for customer service industries, leadership teams, and families)
  • what the brain and body do in the fear state
  • steps to reduce the fear response
  • anxiety reduction techniques
  • sensitivity to those suffering from trauma
  • what to do when facing resistance
  • how to respond when being ignored
  • noticing window of tolerance
  • expanding frustration tolerance capabilities
  • observing body language
  • raising and lowering energy levels
  • emotional refueling
  • intellectual stimulation
  • delight at learning together
  • life-skill applications

This is just the beginning of what can be learned and applied!

I thought this workshop was great!! It deepened my understanding of how “I show up” and the importance of my awareness of that as well. Also, the importance of connection and building trust in relationships.
