Teamwork & Leadership Training with Equines
Ninety-four percent of departing employees report that they would have stayed longer had the company invested in their learning. The learning in this program lasts a lifetime.
This program offers a unique opportunity to support employees individually and collectively, resulting in quality service to them. This is essential to the proven service-to-profit-chain (SPC) model for success.
Onboarding & Productivity
Tuckman's 1) storming 2) forming 3) norming and 4) performing is mirrored in herd dynamics in a way that invites teams to assess their current reality and accelerate to higher performance.
This program results in employee alignment with mission, values, and leadership objectives.
"I’m more mindful now about how I can take responsibility, shift my energy and be a solution rather than blame the situation/co-workers for not doing better. It was so helpful to see the patterns in myself and how much changing those negative tendencies, my attitude and approach, and shifting my approach contributed to a better (more efficient and harmonious) workplace dynamic.”
- A.L., Program Manager

Ana, Retreat Manager
Gita is a wonderful facilitator, and through equine experiences, one can really begin to tune into your own inner wisdom through being present and listening to your heart. It's really a lovely container through which to foster teamwork and deeper relationships with one another. I am very grateful for this experience and opportunity."
Sundara, Nature Educator
Gita does an excellent job at making you feel relaxed, welcomed and loved. Her presence alone allows you to be able to more fully open to the moment and what the horses can teach you about yourself and what you need to grow into a more complete and happy person.
I am a facilitator, coach, and consultant with expertise in the management of people and resources to achieve your mission. I am ready to align your team and light the fire of purpose and passion that will carry your organization forward.
I bring twenty years of professional experience raising millions for humanitarian, educational, and spiritual institutions to my facilitation. I weave into my teaching a lifetime of meditation and self-development as well as my work as an equine assisted educator.
The secret behind my success is my commitment to lead by example. I live a disciplined, joyful, purpose-driven, balanced life.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do participants need to have horse experience? No, all the learning and facilitation we do is from the ground.
Do we need to come to your facility or are you able to come to us? My workshops and facilitation are flexible. If our work together includes equines and your team requires that I travel to you, I have partner organizations with horses available for this work.
If my group comes to you, is there a place to stay? Yes, there are several outstanding accommodation options adjacent to my equine facility. Whether you're looking for private cabins, a large group home, or retreat accommodations, we can find a suitable location for your team to stay while you are here.
What size groups do you work with? The ideal size group matches an ideal herd band: 6-8 individuals. I do, however, tailor programs for larger groups and can bring in co-facilitators as needed.
What are your facilitation fees? This is highly dependent on group needs, location, and program design. If you're interested in supporting your team with this type of work, let's talk.
