Here at Hurst Green Shires we are pleased to offer corporate team-building days with a difference.
Using the therapeutic, physical and psychological power of Shire horses, we can deliver corporate team-building days that allow you and your team to:
• Develop team morale, bonding and respect for others
• Develop individual morale, confidence and patience
• Develop confidence and leadership skills
• Enable you to learn more about your colleagues and their 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 shire horses thrown in to give an extra dynamic
to your day.
Your safety is paramount to us. All of our staff are well trained, and we are a fully insured
riding / driving centre.
Your team will receive full instruction and safety induction on the day, and we will contact you in advance to understand any special circumstances or medical considerations.
For those unfamiliar with horses, then riding can understandably be a scary prospect. We are
completely used to this and our staff make it their priority to ensure clients are comfortable with the horses. We take things slowly and carefully on the day, with activities staged to gradually increase the contact with horses
The perfect combination of actual riding and working with horses,
combined with tried and tested corporate team-building exercises.
These are our core activities based around a 10am – 3pm session
including lunch and breaks, but bespoke days can be arranged.
A classroom-based task that provides a perfect ice-breaker to the day and reveals the hidden personality characteristics of your team. Ideal for bonding, confidence and individual morale.
Build trust in each other with this blindfold task where you can develop leadership skills and respect for others.
Out-of-the-box thinking required for this activity, where teams have to work together for the solution, building bonding and patience.
RIDDEN AND/OR DRIVING SESSION
Your team will get the chance to have a group ridden hack on the day and will have learnt to mount, walk, turn and trot by the end of the session!
Can your team work together as the perfect partnership with your horse to gain their trust in order to win the task?
YOU CAN LEAD A HORSE TO WATER
Trust and leadership skills are developed in this fun and unusual team challenge.
UP MANURE-CREEK WITHOUT A SADDLE
