Why Leadership Coaching With Horses (LWH)®?

We know that leading others begins with self-leadership. When leaders explore themselves in an outdoor setting with horses, who love to work with leaders, they learn about leadership styles and behaviours. This self-awareness is deep and creates deep learning impact for each leader that participates in this unique journey. 

How is Leadership With Horses (LWH)®Unique?

Leadership With Horses®is a unique Leadership Coaching program which is highly effective as it cuts across any human-to-human perception in assessment & coaching.

Being prey animals, horses flight instincts work excellent as an instant mirror and provide a 100% unbiased feedback, hard to ignore.

Horses work with leaders, they can trust. Through horse-human interactions, the leaders and managers are able to reveal the blind spot in their leadership or relationship skills.

They are able to imbibe the skills learnt (inter-personal, communication, team building & conflict resolution skills) into their corporate or real-life settings, while shifting their limiting behavioural patterns, preventing them to build greater relationships.

How Does Horse : Human Coaching Work?

Horses sense whether you are congruent and aligned in heart, body and spirit and so they have an innate ability to see deep into your soul and challenge those beliefs and false self-images, that our ego puts up to protect us.

This experience enables the participants to respond accordingly, learn to communicate better, manage & handle their fears and understand the repercussions of their intentions and actions.

“The horse knows…He knows if you know…

...He also knows if you don’t know” – Ray Hunt

What Is Leadership With Horses (LWH)® Coaching Program?

During our Executive Coaching Program a 2-Day Experiential Program with Horses is inbuilt to help participants self-assess themselves as leaders, to take their leadership to next level and equip them to lead well.

The activities will be recorded to understand the behaviour between humans and horses as well as human teams.

These interactions will be later analyzed and discussed for learning purpose.

Participants get an opportunity to introspect and assess their style of management and leadership - un-learn, learn and re-learn during this entire program and become the best leaders they can be!

What Else Makes This Program Different?

We believe that the true learning happens when you are out of the office and in real-life where you can explore your true self. 

  • Participants are taken out of their comfort zones in a new territory and with an unknown coach from another species.

  • Immediate transfer of learning - this learning is real, in the moment and more genuine.  Besides, boosting the confidence of each individual, by connecting with and learning from a  500+ kg animal  standing next to them, the sessions  with horses are highly interactive which cannot be  acquired in a regular setting.

  • The Horses will make you savor the moment and make you more receptive towards a real-time feedback.

The participants will be able to understand the dynamics of their interactions with horses and bring the learning immediately into their work and life. 

Where Is The Program Conducted?

We conduct this workshop in Chennai, Bangalore, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Delhi, Meerut in a perfect set-up for self-evaluation and self-discovery.

We also combine another day for bringing in your reflections into planning your goals for the next few months. Also it gives a setting for the leaders to immerse in themselves to find their true selves.

Is Prior Experience Required?

It is quite possible for some of the participants to have some anxiety or fear when it comes to working with horses. Some may have never been around them or have had a scary incident as a child. 

Our aim is to coach our clients to understand the wisdom of this entire experience and how they can gain with their personal power and manage their fears and concerns that are still present. This will itself stretch the leadership capabilities of the participants. 

No prior horse experience is necessary during this program. We follow all safety precautions throughout all our learning sessions. We also ensure that participants understand the horses, their nature, and how to stay safe while working with them.

We honor both the human and the horse, and our intention is to create a setting that brings the best out in both beings. Our participants are always at choice, and no learning is forced.

“The Workshop with horses is a fascinating experience to recognize especially the strengths in the own leadership style and the videos of the workshop can be used for personal development. This is a must for all who like to deal with the topic of leadership in a total different way.”. 

Dr. Günter Pitz 

Head of Quality Management


“A couple of things that horses have taught me in leadership: 1. Leaders must know where they are headed. It is very obvious with horses: if you don’t know where you are going, the horse will not follow you. 2. Horses keep you humble. Leaders must remain humble. Horses bring you down to earth really fast.”

Aditya Krishna

Commonly Asked Questions

How does this program work when in a team?

The horse offers a lot of added value because it reacts to the behaviour of the participants independently to the group dynamics and immediately gives the participants a sometimes unexpected response. Unlike humans, horses cannot be impressed by words, (empty) promises, outward appearances or positions and titles - you can only win the animals through authentic communication, trust, empathy and motivation.

Why horses and not dogs?

Horses are flight animals and live in nature in a herd with similar hierarchical structures as we know them in companies. What distinguishes horses fundamentally from dogs is the relationship with humans: dogs protect their owners and or their families - while horses follow human partners on basis of their body language and social skills, but do not protect or defend them. Similar to the behaviour between employee and manager: The employee will follow the instructions of the manager if the task is clearly communicated and there is a good relationship basis. If it comes to a breach of trust the results suffer.

Could we fall from the horse?

Our program is not about riding. The exercises with the horses take place almost exclusively from the ground - we also integrate one or the other exercise on the horse. The exercises on the horses are guided by experts with years of experience and the appropriate horses are selected in advance. The safety of our program participants is the first priority.

I do not like animals, what am I supposed to do?

Many of our participants never had contact with horses or other animals prior to the workshop. We are not wanting to make your participants animal lovers - but to use the horse as an "instrument" and "mirror" to improve communication, emotional competence and leadership quality. Some of our seminar participants had negative experiences with dogs or horses before our workshop - with the professional care, these fears generally subside within 30 minutes.
