Equine Assisted Learning Teacher
Junior is our 'go to' guy! He gives endless patience to his teammates and inspires confidence to anyone who feels unsure about working with horses. We could hand his lead-rope to a 3 year old child with complete trust in his steady personality. Junior had a long and loving partnership with his former owner who rode him through mountain trails for 15 years.
After developing arthritis, he began to stumble on the trail and was retired from riding. W.E.L.L. is extremely fortunate that his owner wanted this great horse to continue with a purpose - and that she donated him (along with Cody) to our program. Junior is usually the first horse you'll meet because he will calm any fears while building your trust and confidence. He's not a pushover though! He gives us many teachable moments, just in a slower fashion than some of the more sensitive horses. Junior encourages participants to make sure they are engaging the whole team; if he's not motivated, he doesn't feel the need to give much effort...does anyone?

BLENDING GENERATIONAL NEEDS?
The employment expectations & values differ greatly from a 60 year old to a 22 year old. Boomers require job security & stability while Millennials won't hesitate to leave a position where they don't feel valued and are not afraid to ask for what they want.
Our programs support diversity & inclusiveness at EVERY level. Job title & age have zero impact in our classroom, we level the field in our all-inclusive learning environment where every single participant will experience positive, results oriented outcomes.
ENGAGEMENT! Employees are demanding involvement & impact within their workplace functions and vision. Fail to engage a Millennial, they move on. Treat seasoned employees as a number, they retire and take all of their knowledge and experience with them. Employee turnover is costly on several levels - grow & promote from within your organization!
Participants engage in a fully experiential learning atmosphere where collaboration & team support is paramount to achieving their goals. Motivation & morale increase, leading to deeper engagement & greater overall success.
LEADERSHIP STYLE & EXPECTATIONS?
Gone are the days of dictatorship style management! Quality of Leadership has become a core expectation of younger employees and progressive businesses are investing in Leadership Development. But how do you measure leadership ability? How can you be sure except through time & results?
Our teachers identify leadership within minutes of interacting with people. Consistently, without words or opinion, they will test leadership and clearly respond to our stimulus. We have 2,000 years of natural instinct that cannot be fooled.
“After my first session I came away a firm believer that working with horses can not only help individuals to better understand themselves, but can also be instrumental in developing effective teams that are aligned and working towards a common purpose. The fact that the benefits are evident almost immediately makes for a fantastic team building event that can actually produce results.”
