Learn To Lead

Connection - Confidence - Creativity - Courage - Communication

"Learn To Lead" Holiday Workshops are a fun and exciting introduction to Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) Life Skills and Leadership Development. We spend the day in our nature-based setting and we have a blast as we "disconnect" from technology and the kids "reconnect" with themselves, with horses , with other peers and nature!

Your tween or teen will participate in an EAL session where the horses step in as "teachers" introducing the powerful life skills that help them develop SELF LEADERSHIP. 

Self Leadership is made up of life-serving traits, attributes, skills and a deeper awareness of self (and others). It is developed from working on ourselves and our awareness from the inside, out.

This exciting holiday workshop is offered at Jess's main venue at Strathalbyn as well as a second venue at Willalooka in the South East. 

If this is your first visit to Leading Change Experiences, please take a moment to look through our website to learn about why we work with horses as teachers. The FAQ page has answers to many of the more common questions I am asked.

My daughter attended a teen workshop for girls in the holidays with Jess and her horses and what a wonderful day she had. Jess is warm,friendly and so lovely. Add the interaction with the horses (which my girl has never been close to in this way), the effect on her was immediate. With all the counsellors etc we have seen the one day spent with Jess and her team outweighs everything else. Can't recommend this amazing opportunity enough.. Jess and horse Hippy, thank you so much for all you are doing and for providing such a beautiful environment to help our kids..... THANK YOU...."💕
