Leadership Development

"The Laws of Leadership are Universal." 

Horses Are Powerful Teachers

And they don't carry Covid

Over thousands of years, horses have learned to follow the strongest leader in the herd for survival. They respond to energy and out-perform humans with their innate ability to read intentions, reflect emotions and deliver instantaneous feedback, providing an undistorted mirror and insight on how others perceive us. At their core, they are perhaps the world's greatest communicators.

Communication and leadership are the hallmarks of successful horse training. Greg's Corporate Leadership Program creates a unique experiential learning opportunity, by combining horses’ natural leadership ability with educators who have mastered the art of learning and communication.

“You’re empowering them rather than forcing them.” “It’s really about allowing the individual to feel the success and being attuned to their needs”, Karen F., manager at Philips Medical Systems.

Our "Why"

Today's corporate environment requires a new approach to leadership.


Challenges such as COVID, online business, individual needs of remote employees, generational differences and corporate consolidation all require effective communication skills and keen leadership.

In today's competitive marketplace, authentic leadership and dynamic teamwork are critical to success. Businesses and organizations are increasingly looking outside of traditional educational training methods to give them a competitive edge in developing leaders and teams that perform.

Our Fearless Leader


Program founder Greg Eliel, has turned the art of “horse whispering” into “human whispering.” A fourth generation Montana cattle rancher, Greg learned early in life the importance of effective communication with his partner, the horse. He went on to receive a Bachelor’s in Animal Science from Montana State University, before establishing himself as a sought-after horsemanship clinician throughout the country. Greg’s equestrian program is renowned for achieving dramatic results by breaking through communication barriers between riders and their horses. Greg also developed a free horsemanship program designed to help U.S. military veterans and their families struggling with the devastating effects of PTS and TBIs.


Since 2006, Greg has applied this tremendous experience with horse/human communications to help corporate leaders uncover hidden potential within their teams.
