Team-building equine-assisted retreats are available for groups of people or agencies and corporations at the Special Cheers location only. The retreats incorporate psychoeducation on healthy communication, conflict resolution, and experiential team-building exercises using ground-based activities with horses.

The location offers a safe space for the team-building experience outdoors. This is a great way to re-establish connected communication between team members that have been remote or newly developed teams. The location offers beautiful 240 acres in West Houston with sunshine, a herd of 15 horses, and mindfulness outdoor exercises. This is a unique opportunity for a strength-based team-building approach for you and your team.
