Experiential learning for lasting change

We've been harnessing the collective human-potential in organizations since 2009


We create experiences for deeper learning and  lasting organizational change 

Welcome.  We are The Collaboration Partners, a US based Experiential Learning Company, and our Learning & Development Programs are delivered in collaboration with Horses, nationally and internationally (and virtually!).

'Learning by Doing' is a proven and powerful approach to gaining new knowledge and skills. We remember 75% of what we do and only 5% of what we hear!
When you add Horses into the 'Learning by Doing' mix, you get realtime feedback, as well as the opportunity to test and practice the  change you've learned before you apply it.

Horses are highly intuitive and provide feedback without bias or alternative agendas.  By experiencing first-hand how they react to your voice, body language and movement, you'll receive realtime insight into how this lands in your workplace and what you may need to do differently to get the outcome you desire.  

So whether you're a large organization, small project team, or leadership group seeking to change the culture of the organization, the horses will innately tune into who (or what) is in front of them and your learning journey starts there.


What value do horses bring into experiential learning workshops?

1. Awareness

The immediate and unbiased feedback we receive from working with horses creates a highly unique awareness of how we appear to others.
