Skills Development & Leadership

Skills and leadership development through working with horses

Do you wish that you could achieve more balance in your lives and in your relationships? Are you aiming to be a dynamic and authentic leader in the workplace?

At Diamond Blue Stables we offer a range of psychology, skills development and leadership programs for people aged 12 years and over. Through the lens of positive psychology we recognise the benefits of genuine and trusting relationships. We believe in people’s ability to change and grow.

The Service is based in a rural village called Michelago, located only 30 minutes south of Canberra ACT.

The Service is an alternative to office based interventions and provides people with the opportunity to get outdoors and learn by doing!

Equine Learning & Leadership

Why Horses?

By partnering with horses people are better able to:

  • think flexibly
  • act with purpose
  • make decisions
  • engage in mindful behaviour
  • communicate with empathy and assertiveness
  • strengthen connections with others

Real and lasting change occurs through the moment by moment interactions between the person and horse.

What is unique about them? 

  • horses are a prey animal and naturally live in herds – they are highly sensitive and intuitive and respond well to leadership
  • they provide immediate feedback about a person’s energy and approach
  • they have a powerful presence that enhances the learning experience
  • they are honest and non-judgemental

Lessons learned in the arena can be paralleled back to people’s everyday life. 

What are the facilities and requirements? 

  • our programs are provided in a rural setting with superior facilities inclusive of an indoor arena, stables, and a counselling and briefing area
  • there is no riding component and there is no requirement for people to have prior experience with horses

Horses carry the wisdom of healing in their hearts and offer it to any human who possess the humility to listen.
