I can’t remember the expectations I had coming here. It doesn’t matter anymore: they would have been surpassed! I loved the interaction with the horses and the idea that I could control the uncontrollable.  I’ve learned a thing or two about patience, courage and respect.

One of the most beautiful experiences I’ve had! I keep wondering who the best teachers are: humans or horses?  I’ve realized that communication is more than words. Attitude weights more.

Words of the day “Go with the flow!”.  I’ve learned the importance of truly believing in what you are doing, irrespective of what that is. Trust what you do and do what you trust.

The team exercise was the most intense activity for me. In a very short amount of time it revealed both the problem and the solution. No interpretation needed because everything becomes obvious with the help of the horses.

Concept Example: Leadership Tools

Leadership from near and far (with tools).

Clarity starts inside.
You can’t offer what you don’t have.
Listen to understand, not to respond.
Ask yourself, before you start asking others.

This exercise is for a team of 4 individuals and one horse.

The leadership tools they may use are 4 lead ropes: 2 long (5m) and 2 short (2-3m).

This activity is a metaphor for:

  • A management team (the 4 participants) leading the organization;
  • Aligned vs conflicting inputs into a system;
  • The efficiency and efficacy of various leadership and management tools, depending on the context;
  • Individual preferences regarding freedom and control;
  • Organization and implementation of specific tactics;
  • Roles: who, when, why;
  • Adapting to (unforeseen) changes.
