Whether you are a corporate group interested in a full day leadership/team development retreat or are visiting for your own personal development and well-being, Dashing W Farm in Opelousas, Louisiana is a must stop for horse lovers. Horses have always been an integral part of South Louisiana culture, and at Dashing W Farm, you can get up close and personal with horses through fun ground activities that are designed to help you learn more about yourself and how to enhance your own personal development.

Their barn, a renovated 50-year old building located on a 5.26 acre farm, is the home of Causeimadoll, Miss Chris, Elzina, and Pappa, four retired racehorses who make up Dashing W’s Equine Partners. This hands-on, personal experience through Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) is the only one of its kind in the state and allows you to tap into the mystique of horses and how their ability to offer immediate feedback about our presence, emotional intelligence, and body language can better connect you with your coworkers, friends, or family members.

No riding is involved and no prior experience with horses is needed. Through observation, grooming, obstacle courses, and other challenging activities, you might just discover how living in the moment like a herd of horses can help you improve your ability to establish relationships, communicate more effectively with others, and set other intentions for change.

This experience is perfect for adults and children between the ages of 11 and 17 for people of all kinds and abilities. Remember to dress appropriately. Call for more information or to schedule an appointment.
