CLINIC VERSUS SEMINAR

 

If there are not enough participants to schedule a clinic (where attendees actually work with their horse), but there is sufficient interest shown for auditing, then hosting a seminar instead of a clinic is another option. (You would need to coordinate this with the instructor)

 

Seminars do not include active participation of individuals and their horses, but can be effective in introducing training concepts and methods to large groups, at a lower cost per person.

FACILITY RENTALS

Equestrian groups and organizations are welcome to rent Green Acres Farm facilities for their horse shows, competitions, clinics, demonstrations, and special events.

GROUNDS RENTAL

 

Green Acres will custom-harrow the arena to the specifications for which each arena was designed.

We will do our best to accommodate the individual needs for each discipline in the Indoor Arena.

LEADERSHIP TRAINING

THE FIVE ROLES OF A MASTER HERDER

The Power of the Herd:

A non-predatory approach to Social Intelligence, Leadership andInnovation 

by Linda Kohanov

 

Mastering the five roles of leadership, and determine which role is most natural for you. Employ the roles of Leader, Dominant, and Nurturer/Companion. Once you know who you are you can learn, how you can affect the other roles in a positive and productive work environment.

WHY YOU NEED TO ATTEND: 

This workshop helps you transform the conflicts and power plays that occur in any group into opportunities for building trust, mutual respect, understanding, and teamwork! Learn how setting boundaries provides effective leadership while building highly functioning teams of engaged employees.

Researchers in human relationships have demonstrated how less than 10% of communication is verbal. A savvy business leader knows how to use the remaining 90% to calm, focus and motive others positively.

The emphasis is on learning how to thrive rather than simply survive, ultimately bringing these opposites into into an empowered balance and expand potential. Spend a day away from the office and in the stable, where you will realize the role you play within the team. Let the horses be your guide.
