Horses are honest teachers with personalities as varied as those of humans; therefore they react differently to each person and each action.
Horses are useful as provocative metaphors in teambuilding and leadership activities, as well as used in mental health activities.
As prey animals, horses are hyper sensitive to outside stimuli. Horses give immediate and uncensored feedback.
Horses are sensitive to nonverbal stimulus and therefore provide valuable and visible lessons in nonverbal communication.
Horses recognize the most subtle behavior of people including posture, expressions and emotions. They are experts at reading and responding to body language.
They seem to sense a person’s level of trust, confidence, awareness, and interpersonal skills. Therefore, horses offer us an opportunity to learn what we need to change to succeed in personal and professional relationships.
Horses have much to teach us about patterns of communication, behavior and relationships. Through exercises with horses you’ll gain immediate and honest feedback as the horse mirrors human behavior and emotions.The University of Georgia, Terry College of Business has incorporated our events in their MBA Leadership Workshops annually since 2009.

Just because horses are used in these exercises does not mean our program has anything to do with horseback riding or horsemanship instruction. In fact the exercises are most beneficial to groups who have little or no previous horse experience.
