You can jerk an employee around and they’ll follow you anyway.

A horse won’t.

Imagine what you can learn from a horse....

I know you want to be the type of leader that people follow because they want to.

Not because they have to.


You want to be authentic. You want to lead with clarity, service, and compassion.

You want to be a Master of Leadership and Responsibility.

Join two Masters and 8 Horses near Austin, Texas


May 23, 2019


to Elevate Your Collaborative Leadership Skills

Experience true leadership with Penny Stone, author of “Uncommonly Good Horse Sense” and developer of Whole Horsemanship, and Christopher Avery, The Responsibility Process® guy, noted speaker, consultant  and author, in this outdoor adventure at a ranch near Austin where horses will teach us to be the leaders others want to follow.


Horses live in a world of leaders and followers.

Their very survival depends on it. They've got it down, and can give you the clearest feedback. Horses are truly authentic and will not respond to your leadership cues unless you give clear, authentic directions. This quality makes them a perfect partner for understanding and improving your leadership and responsibility practices.

You’ll be amazed at what you can learn from an animal who sees you in ways you don't see yourself. It is a great  antidote to living in one's head.

Christopher Avery says “I was blown away when I spent a day with Penny watching her lead a horse training workshop. I was touched by the immediate soulfulness and authenticity workshop participants experienced. She showed herself to be a master right away -- I now know a horse whisperer! I knew then that I wanted to collaborate with Penny to provide you with this unique and very effective experience for examining and expanding your leadership and responsibility practices. The parallel truths of her teaching and my work with The Responsibility Process are uncanny -- I call it ‘same truth -- different languages.’”

Working with horses is an exceptional experience. These amazing creatures can teach us so much about ourselves - and they are big and can surprise those who don’t have much experience.  Thus it is essential to work with guides who are experienced and skillful with horses.


There are only so many horse/human teams we can keep our eyes on.   For this reason the places for this workshop are limited. No crowds here. Just 8 teams of 2 people and one horse, with your guides.


The chance to work with two Masters - like Penny and Christopher, and with horses as our teachers is very rare. This workshop will fill quickly. Don’t miss out on this unique experience.
