Bennington Carriages Team Building Experience

Drive a real horse drawn carriage! 

This is a unique event where colleagues can come together in fabulous rural outdoor surroundings to learn a new skill. Established for over 50 years, Bennington Carriages is Britain's foremost horse drawn carriage manufacturer - designing, building and maintaining the very finest horse drawn carriages for pleasure and competitive carriage driving. Now you and your colleagues can learn to drive these carriages in the stunning location at Bennington

Activities could include:

  • Learning to put on a harness – set up in groups

  • Long reining each other, with the person as the horse – blindfolded. The essence of communication and linking it to the horse, discuss the association of body language and how we communicate – a fun exercise without the horse, where all team members can contribute.

  • Grooming of the horse

  • Putting the horse to the carriage

  • Group members who do not wish to drive – build a cones course, under instruction with detailed plan

  • Drive indoors and potentially drive outside

  • End goal to drive the cones course, set up by their colleagues.

  • Awards, sum up and Q & A

For delegates who do not wish to have a go at Carriage driving, the Bennington drivers can take them for a ride on a carriage around the training field. Bennington is also able to offer a meeting place for groups who wish to add a business element to their day.

The ideal group size is a maximum of 20 people, in groups of 5 with the goal to keep delegates active and engaged, with everyone having a part to play.
