Upcoming Workshops:

March 28-29- Leadership Through Relationship

Interacting with horses allows us to recognize and practice our innate leadership skills. In this workshop, you will learn ways to improve your communication, both verbal and nonverbal, and how to encourage innovative and inspiring techniques for problem solving. Learn to lead from your authentic place  and foster meaningful relationships.

No horse experience is necessary to participate.

In this 2-day non-riding interactive experiential workshop you will:

  • Discover your leadership style with relationships, work, family
  • Differentiate the 5 roles of leadership and learn how to utilize them appropriately

  • Experience authentic connection and utilize emotions as information
  • Explore your personal relationship to power

“It’s difficult to find an adjective strong enough to convey the effect Saturday had on me but words like profound and transformative come to mind. I feel a shift in my world view occurred though I am still processing the experience. I know for sure Ricky Ricardo touched a wounded part of me in a gentle and healing way that years of human therapy have not been able to touch.  I would 100% recommend this program to anyone. I am quite sure I will remember this all of my life.”  – C.E.
