Lessons In Leadership, Single Channel HD Video (13 min) 2022

Lessons in Leadership explores the potential and problematics of EAL (Equine Assisted Learning) where horses are used as training tools in corporate and business leadership programs. Although horses could have a lot to teach us about embodied learning, awareness and more horizontal leadership structures, the video questions the problematics of appropriating and translating another animal into human capitalist systems and power structures. This video is the result of a year of documentary research with EAL facilitators, as well as filming wild welsh mountain ponies and learning to horse whisper through embodied training experiences. It is part of a larger body of work explore human-horse-place relationships.
