Participants work in small groups of 2-3 people and 1 horse. Together, through positive interaction and teamwork, participants and equine teachers will work through a series of objective-driven, ground-based activities (no riding), to achieve specific outcomes, so that each person learns about themselves, their strengths, their personality, and the energy they give out to everyone around them.
Personal skills such as confidence and self-esteem, trust, empathy, teamwork, leadership, respect, communication, decision-making and negotiation, are all addressed during our Building Block™ program – skills that will impact greatly on a participant’s ability to build strong family/social/community relationships, and gain future employment and financial independence.
Not everyone learns within a traditional educational environment. The success of our program is due to all learning and skills-building taking place outdoors. All learning is self-paced, hands-on and practical, thereby suiting the personality and learning styles of every one of our participants. It’s fun, empowering, engages all senses, with all learnt skills transferable back to everyday life.
