TEAM BUILDING

 

INVEST IN YOUR ORGANIZATION TODAY,

FOR SUCCESS TOMORROW!

Are you looking for a fun and dynamic experience to move your team or organization forward? Are you tired of the typical team building exercises that engage you in competition amongst your group rather than collaboration? How about learning how to better communicate and become team players to reach your organization's goals in a fun and engaging environment?

EmPower U Equine offers a unique opportunity for your team to partner with our team of 1200 pound horses! Our team requires you to be leaders they can trust! By taking part in our unique experiential learning exercise your organization will develop essential skills, behaviours and attitudes that will make them successful team players in your organization, and in life.

WHY HORSES YOU ASK?

Well herds to horses are just like teams to people, and at EmPower U Equine we are able to use these parallels to bring about change in your organization. Horses live in the moment and don’t worry about the past or future. They are prey animals that will allow us into their space once they can see we are leaders they can trust. Isn’t that what you want for your organization? People who can be leaders that everyone can trust!! Horses are non-judgemental, but are quick to react so they will bring about the change that is required amongst your team to help make your organization more successful.  

HOW DOES THIS WORK?

Unlike other team building exercises, you will be fully engaged in our fun and exciting atmosphere while partnering with our team to make an unforgettable experience. Our program will be custom designed for what your organization's goals and objectives are. While working through our series of experiential exercises with our horses, your team will feel a sense of achievement, all while learning to problem solve and become better leaders. They will be required to learn how to trust not only their 1200 pound teammate, but their human ones too! They will gain confidence and discover how to negotiate and communicate to reach the desired outcome in our facility, which then they will take back to yours! Our programs offer irrefutable results, and when you engage in hands on learning to develop these essential skills to make your organization successful, they won’t be forgotten.

HOW WILL OUR TEAM BENEFIT FROM THIS PROGRAM?

Horses, being prey animals, react instantly. This brings about change that is required amongst your team immediately, making your team more successful!

"This program is not only a way of connecting with your co-workers but a way of connecting with yourself. Change is inevitable - growth is optional."

TEAM BUILDING... WITH A HORSE OF COURSE!

This day is about bringing your organization to success, and by partnering with EmPower U Equine, you will do just that. All you need to do is come prepared for an experience like no other, and be ready for the change your organization is requiring. There is no riding the horses in these team building activities, so all that you need is a willing attitude and some closed toed shoes… Oh! And maybe leave your favourite clothes at home!   We can work groups up to 12. If you have more than 12, no problem at all! We would be happy to discuss how we can work with you and make a program designed for your group size. 

Contact us today to discover how EmPower U Equine can move your organization to the next level of success!

 

WHY DO WE WORK WITH A PREY ANIMAL?

To understand how this process works we must first realize how horses learn and understand the laws of survival. In a horse’s world, the rules are clear, easy to understand and dealt with swiftly when challenged.

 

As a prey animal, they are sensitive to the stimulus of each participant. They react to the stimulus through body language and participants must adjust their feelings and behaviours to work successfully with the horses. As facilitators listen to a horse’s non-verbal communication, together, they have the ability to walk participants through to finding life-altering change. By understanding why and how horses are aware of our every movement – you will come to know how effective equine-assisted learning programs are to finding success.

DOES THIS TEAM BUILDING WORKSHOP REALLY WORK?

Working with horses creates a unique memory that causes the participants to remember the training far longer than if sitting in 'just another classroom'. 

 

At the most basic level, all skills are interpersonal communications skills, which also tends to be one of the most lacking in today's corporate environment. Horses reveal the hidden dynamics of your team. Team activities are designed to facilitate problem solving that encourages individuals to work cohesively as a team for positive results. This unique style of horse/human interaction is an effective approach to team building and leadership development and is a powerful metaphor for the work environment.

WHAT IS EQUINE ASSISTED LEARNING?

To put it simply, Equine Assisted Learning is a learner based educational, experiential experience with horses. More specifically, Equine Assisted Learning is a horse course with an effective approach to human development that encourages individual and team growth. Participants engage in objectively driven exercises and find themselves learning valuable skills in a fun and exciting atmosphere. Equine Assisted Learning has proven to be useful, powerful, positive, educational, and creative.

 

It has been proven that the more senses that are engaged, the greater the likelihood that new learning will be retained. Looking for substantial results, change, then you have found the organization to bring about the change your leaders and teams need to take your company to that next level of profits. Horses require a leader that they trust and respect, just like we would love to have in the workplace.
