Programs

In a world where social media has taken over as the prime method of communication and teenagers are faced with making adult decisions at a younger age, it’s vital for parents/caregivers to be able to keep communication paths open.

What

These one and two-day programs have been designed specifically to help Parents and Teenagers develop more positive communications styles and a healthy respect for the others situation.

When day to day life is rushed and sometimes marginalised, this day will require you to be VERY present with yourself and your family member.

How

Using horses in the learning process, parents/caregivers and teenagers will work both separately and together throughout the program in order to allow each group to discuss the issues they face and share learning with other participants.

Highly experiential activities with our horses are designed to be provocative, engaging and fun!  The sessions will require you to be in the moment in order to really see and experience what is unfolding.

Outcomes

This program will help you:

  • Explore road-blocks in Communications 
  • Learn to engage in meaningful dialogue
  • Develop greater appreciation for different perspectives

Whether you’ve been together 1 year or 3 decades, trying to balance multiple demands on time, energy and money puts pressure on any relationship, potentially becoming ‘like Ships that pass in the night’ and losing sight of what’s important.

This program is offered in two formats; as a private event for an individual couple or as a group program for up to 4 couples.

What

Our weekend programs get you to pause for a couple of days, be with each other, and with yourself, without the demands of everyday life and consider what requires re-setting.

Working on communication, connection and goals this program is the opportunity for you to spend time re-investing in your relationship.

How

Using the horses’ sensitive connection with its environment, you will be invited to step-in to another beings’ world and notice your experience.  Through a range of activities both individually and together you will be supported to explore your perspectives, judgements and communication style.

The program also includes facilitated discussions as a couple in order to help you identify un-helpful patterns and develop the skills to build a new more supportive connection.

Outcomes

This program will help you:

  • Suspend historic judgements and connect in the present moment
  • Develop healthy and more positive communication styles
  • Identify mutual goals 

These 2 and 3 Day programs are designed for currently serving ADF Personnel, First Responders and those working in the front-line of our communities, who deal with highly challenging and stressful situations on a daily basis. 

What

These emphasis of these programs is to help you stay well, regain some inner calm and develop greater self-awareness. 

In a supportive, non-judgmental group environment, with others from your profession, our program will help you slow down, recognise negative behaviour patterns, and address some of the issues linked to accumulative stress.

How

This program is a unique blend of Equine Assisted Learning, psycho-education and mindfulness designed to help you recognise the things that cause you to escalate and become triggered and raise your self-awareness around behaviour patterns.

Through graded activities with horses and group discussion work we will help you to develop greater resilience and more positive coping strategies to help you stay well.

Outcomes

This program will help you:

  • Increase self-awareness 
  • Address issues linked to Accumulative Stress
  • Support more healthy work-life balance

These 1 & 2-day group programs are designed to support those who have left an abusive domestic situation and seeking to strengthen their resilience and cope better with any on-going anxiety, fear or anger.

What

Sharing this program with others who know what DV is all about, is the key to developing a safe and supportive environment where you can be yourself and explore some of the residual issues.

How

Using the innate survival instincts of a horse, you will be supported and encouraged to explore your authentic feelings, learn to trust unknown situations and speak your ground-truth.
