What is Team Wellbeing

What is Equine Assisted Team Wellbeing?

Equine Assisted Team Wellbeing uses the institutionally recognised base model of Equine Assisted Learning and is an exciting and immersive opportunity for your team to interact with horses and explore more about themselves, build on relationships with colleagues, and harness skills they may not ever knew they had!

 

This is not just a team building day! This is a transformative journey of self discovery, exploring new ways of simply being; connecting on a deeper level and develop skills that can be applied to all facets of professional life.

What Can Equine Assisted Team Wellbeing Do For Your Employees?

Throughout the day you will be interacting with our resident horses; horses as herd animals live in complex social environments and are in constant communication with each other. This maps out the perfect setting for ground work and team building exercises.

 

Equine experiences have proven to provide a unique platform for individuals and teams to develop on a wide range of qualities such as: 

Emotional Regulation & Expression of Needs

Feeling Heard 
& Seen

Growing Confidence & Resilience

Building & 
Receiving Empathy

Growing Awareness Around
Personal Boundaries

Developing Healthy Relationships

Exploring Team & Leadership Dynamics

Learning How To Face Challenges Efficiently & Creatively

Team Wellbeing Why Horses?

Why Horses?

Mindfully interacting with horses can support team members with growing awareness around unique personal boundaries and healthy expression of needs and wants. Being in connection with each other and with these very aware and highly intuitive herd animals, allows team members to reflect on how they approach their relationships and how they face obstacles in their lives. In general horses can support awareness for teams around significant team well-being topics such as finding a mental and physical calm, exploring personal boundaries, healthy communication and facing challenges efficiently.

‘Perhaps one of the most commendable aspects of equine assisted learning for team building is its capacity to explore new skills in a meaningful, fun and inclusive way. It transcends job position, gender, age, or physical abilities, accommodating everyone within the team. This inclusivity fosters a sense of unity and equality, further solidifying the team’s cohesion'

“There is nothing else like this. Our team left the day in a euphoric state. The environment, food, coordinators and the horses! Nothing prepared us for what this would be like, and the business and our culture will be benefiting from this for a long time to come”
