Equine-based Team Building, Leadership and Conflict Transformation

Using equine as teachers, Horse Helpers facilitates learning and strengthening team building, leadership and conflict resolution skills for teens and adults. Proceeding as a group through a series of tasks with a horse at liberty, participants learn how they project themselves to others; discover hidden skills; and learn how to relate to individuals and groups different from themselves.
