Horse Sense for Leaders


Please be aware that the second day of this course is at a different location. The location for the second day is the Washington County Government Center, 1 Government Center Place, Abingdon, Virginia, 24210.

Horse Sense for Leaders is an exciting opportunity presented by Louis Wood of Mountainview Ranch. The best description for the course comes from the organization website:

  • The program provides a visual, dynamic demonstration of the practices and principles at the heart of leadership.​
  • It teaches in a way that allows people to see those practical steps and the results they achieve with their very own eyes.  A key to the program’s success is that people give the horse the benefit of the doubt they often deny their human relationships.  Rather than discount what they are witnessing or being influenced by the potential baggage that their relationships with humans often carry, participants consistently remain open to observe and reflect on what they are witnessing in the round pen and therefore are more willing to consider what the experience has to offer in terms of their effectiveness with others.​
  • The program offers a fresh perspective on leadership as attendees observe the interaction between horse and human.  The visual imagery, the use of the cowboy-horse relationship as a metaphor for human relationships and the program’s unorthodox setting – an equestrian arena- make the experience unlike any other leadership development program.

A description of the schedule and what to expect from the class is available on the Mountainview Ranch website at The minimum enrollment for the course is 40. If you have any questions about the course or registration, please contact Scott Harris at or Amy Johnson at
