The Next Step

Human Growth Potential Through the Way of the Horse

The Next Step Programmes


A program for helping individuals and partnerships to take The Next Step – to become what is next for them to become

The Next Step is a call to adventure.

The Next Step is a journey of discovery and revelation of our authentic selves.

The Next Step is a customised human development program to help individuals and partnerships to create a vision of their potential that can be expressed and manifested into their personal and professional lives.

As David Whyte says in one our favourite poems

Start close in,
don’t take the second step
or the third,
start with the first
close in,
the step
you don’t want to take.
(David Whyte, River Flow. New & Selected Poems)
