In April, MOLMAT had a teambuilding session at Equiemocion. The activity is intended to build communication within the team and disrupt established group dynamics.
Horses are herd animals with set roles and hierarchies, which makes them ideal for observing patterns of leadership and non-verbal communication, both in the horses themselves and in ourselves. Interacting with horses allows work across skillsets.
The setting for the activity, far from the everyday pressures of work, means that outdoor activities foster teamwork, allow members of the group to work together and complement each other, encourage communication between individuals, help develop leadership in the group, increase trust among colleagues and make room for spontaneity. All that makes horse whispering both fun and educational at the same time.
