Using the therapeutic, physical and psychological power of horses, we can deliver corporate team-building days that allow you and your team to: 

- Develop team morale, bonding and respect for others

skills and abilities

With a tested format of activities, we have developed sessions that will comfortably stretch your team and their understanding of themselves and others, in a safe and friendly environment and format. 

A mixture of physical and mental problem-solving activities encourage both independent and team thinking, with a healthy measure of horses thrown in to give an extra dynamic to your day.
