Team building & Leadership

If you are looking for an educational and unique experience to develop your staff then you cannot get any better than our equine facilitated workshops.

We’ve reimagined what professional development looks like.

Our mission is to foster emotionally intelligent leaders and teams through experiential learning workshops that provide realtime feedback. However, authentic feedback in training programmes is difficult because humans are naturally bias. 

So, how do we get around this? One member of your team is a horse. Yes, really. With a horse as our co-facilitator, Advali Lead offer training in both team building and leadership.

A holistic approach.

Supported by a theoretical understanding of how the brain works, our workshops give participants challenging, thought-provoking present-moment experiences — with horses. With this unique and innovative blend, Advali Lead provide a holistic approach to leadership and team building training.

So, why horses?

Humans are wonderfully imperfect; we all have our flaws and faults, and these flow into professional development contexts. Even the most “picture-perfect” leaders will be biased in these situations — we just can’t help it!
That’s where horses come in.


Horses are the ideal co-facilitator for initiating change and development because horses they don’t have a frontal cortex. This means they literally can’t seperate their feelings from their behaviour. They can’t lie. A horse can only work within the boundaries of the present moment, curating a communication environment grounded in honesty. Horses are masters at reading nonverbal communication, which is ideal because most of our communication actually comes down to body language.

A horse’s ability to read our intentions and provide immediate feedback helps us become more aware of our nonverbal communication practices. We can better understand how our thoughts impact our body language, and the potential effect our subtle signs can have on others.

Key to success

The importance of emotional intelligence

Research suggests that nearly one third of an organisation’s financial performance can be attributed to its working environment. An environment that’s influenced by the leaders of the organisation.

It doesn’t matter how much training or experience a corporate head has — without emotional intelligence, they’ll never become a great leader. Partnering with horses in leadership programs provides a unique opportunity to foster the development of emotional intelligence in our leaders. 

Unlike other training programs, in which a participant may need to go away to work on things learned about themselves, horses allow people to make immediate and lasting changes. This aligns with emerging neuropathway research, which suggests that present-moment experiences lead to permanent cognitive and emotional change.
