Who We Are
We are one of a limited number of EAGALA programmes in Taranaki. We are corporate team building professionals and horse enthusiasts with extensive experience in both areas.
With almost 10 years in the organisational consultancy profession, both in New Zealand and abroad, and 35 years working with horses we have combined the two passions with EAGALA principles to offer this service to groups and companies.
What is Equine Assisted Learning and Corporate Team Building
Equine Assisted Learning is at the cutting edge of leadership training, team building and corporate development in New Zealand. The Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA) Model of Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) provides a safe structured model for facilitating learning and change. It is a team approach in which a Certified Equine Specialist and Mental Health Professional facilitate horses and people working together to achieve learning, leadership and team building goals.
Activities with the horses challenge participants to work together to find solutions through positive communication and co-operation. EAL improves relationships, confidence, self-esteem, communication, assertiveness, problem-solving, creativity, teamwork, and leadership capacity. The EAL experience can be used as a metaphor for real life situations and new solutions can be integrated into positive changes in the team and/or work environment.
Participants will be immersed in a whole body action learning experience with horses where they will practically apply and reflect on their teamwork abilities and awareness. In essence working with horses provides an opportunity to bring out the best in ourselves, each other, and the team as a whole.
