Well-being in the Workplace


These experiential learning courses with horses are for employees, employers and self employed.

They aim to: • Build emotional intelligence and resilience • Increase embodiment, mindfulness and presence

• Explore ways that help reduce the work related pressures and challenges many of us struggle with at times, therefore improving well-being. 


How can experiential learning with horses help humans to thrive in the workplace?


We work experientially with the horses to explore and experience how to work with them in away that is good for you and good for them. Due to their natural biological need to feel safe around us, and working with a process of enquiry, metaphor and phenomenological exercises the horses teach and encourage us how to show up in away that encourages well-being...


This includes:


Emotional Intelligence

  • Self-awareness

  • social awareness and empathy

  • Tools for managing relationships successfully

  • Respect for and healthy use of boundaries



  • Emotional self-regulation through the breath

  • Feeling grounded

  • Being present to physiological emotional responses

  • Being aware of body language and non-verbal

  • Body language

  • Recognising and caring for the body's needs



  • Being awake to what is in front of and around us here and now

  • The capacity for playfulness and improvisation

  • Ability to stop, reflect and respond rather than react

  • Knowing how to come back to stillness and presence when aroused or distracted


Horses will constantly invite us and require us to be present, authentic, aware of our emotions and our surroundings, and connected to our breath and bodies. When we do this, they will give us instant feedback and reward, thereby acting as a constant barometer to reflect back our levels of emotional intelligence, embodiment and presence helping us to cultivate and deepen these capacities

If you have found your way to this page, you probably don't need us to tell you that work-related stress, anxiety and mental health is a problem in our society. For all of us as individuals, gathering the skills and support we need to thrive in the workplace is of paramount importance.  


The health of any living system depends on the well-being of the individuals that make up that system. It is becoming increasingly clear that our businesses and organisations are no different and that if one member of a team is struggling then the productivity and harmony of the whole can also suffer.


The recent government report Thriving at Work is full of solid facts and statistics that make a solid rational case for businesses investing in the wellbeing and mental health of their employees.

Please contact us if you would like to take part in one of our well-being at work one day pilot workshops
