Team building takes on a new meaning at Windhorse Retreat

Sandy Bell describes her company’s business as “horses helping humans reach our full potential,” and her three horses — Alaska, Target and Dixie — as her “co-facilitators.”

Bell, owner of Windhorse Retreat, puts on workshops and learning events at her Rimbey-area farm, with interaction with her horses — or “equine-assisted learning” — playing a central role.

Recently the horses put on their own professional development session.

“The Windhorses play together so we all get to know each other better,” said Bell. “On this day, they lined up at the tarp and showed me their own team-building exercise — Tarp 101.”
