***********

Equine-Assisted Learning, Wellness and Personal Development


Horses can play a powerful role in growth, healing and skills development.  They live in the present moment and are highly tuned into their surroundings. They fully use all of their senses, including their ability to read the inner state of others. Horses have the gift of intervening on an emotional and somatic (body) level which makes them excellent partners for helping us meet the challenges that lay before us.

Team Building - Enjoy a uniquely empowering team building day! We will take yourcommunication skills to new levels, build trust and unlock leadership abilities to create immediate and last change in you and your team. Emphasis will be on collaboration and cooperation through hands on tasks requiring a team effort. Our unique approach will help build character, improve communication and allow participants to connect on a deeper level. 

Mindful Leadership - Learn effective leadership, communication skills and how one's actions can create or reduce cooperation, engagement, and trust. Hands-on and classroom exercises will demonstrate active listening, non-verbal communication, creative thinking, team work and using appropriate authority to help participants recognize and demonstrate exemplary leadership qualities. Equine-assisted learning in this context allows participants to choose alternatives to generate better collaboration and align shared goals and outcomes. The success of any company relies heavily on its management team's ability to inspire and motivate others. By improving your leadership skills you will see:
* improved communication
* increased productivity
* increased motivation levels
* increased creativity/innovation 
* increased levels of employee satisfaction and engagement
* decreased levels of absenteeism
* higher levels of e
mployee retention

Youth Leadership - In a world of technology and texting, we can lose sight of interpersonal skills and relationships. Our hands on youth programs are designed to build communication, leadership and teamwork skills as well as unlocking new found confidence and courage that will allow youth to not only connect with their peers, parents and teachers on a deeper level but to view their own strengths and abilities with greater clarity and pride. We can tailor our programs to meet your desired outcomes from half and full day workshops to weekly one-hour sessions.


Wellness
- Equine-Assisted Wellness programs help people with making personal changes in their lives that they may not have been able to accomplish on their own. The process of interacting with horses involves developing or re-discovering one's own natural ability to heal, thrive and grow. The horses and the natural environment provide unparalleled opportunities for increased self awareness and self reflection and help participants to reconnect to positive resources, see problems in a new way and support the journey to new possibilities. 
Some of our topics may include:
Tapping into Your Inner Calm: Reducing stress in todays's hectic world
Girl Power: Finding the courage and confidence to live your best life
The Leader In Me: Learning how to own your power and write your own story
Hoofbeats and Heartsongs: Writing workshop using the horses as our 'muse.'
Mindfulness with Horses: Mindfulness activties with and without the horses (including classroom and out on the land) to help bring better clarity and focus back into your life.
Passion and Ponies: Activities with and without the horses (including classroom and out on the land) to help align ourselves with our true passion and purpose.

My son had his birthday here last year, it was an awesome hit. The day was beautiful and farm was clean and all the animals were well cared for and happy. The staff were sweet. I really recommend it!  - K.D 


CAMP PROGRAMS 2019!!

Storybook's popular day camps are designed so
children spend most of their days outdoors enjoying fresh air, physical fitness, imaginative play and, of course, hands-on experiential learning about animals and nature.

The animals in turn, help us to create an environment that fosters skills like teamwork and communication; awareness; patience; self confidence; problem-solving; compassion and empathy, and respect for self, each other and nature.
In addition to all our animal 'antics', each camp includes plenty of games, arts and crafts, scavenger hunts, hiking, stories, and outdoor exploration.

Class sizes are small to ensure plenty of hands on learning and animal interactions. Our critter camps include just 12-14 kids per counsellor while horse camps have a max. of six - 10 participants depending on the camp. Volunteers are always on hand to help out!
