Lessons on Mentorship is for coaches, teachers, business people, professional people, student leaders and especially parents. This unique and entertaining training session uses an untrained, unbroken, never ridden before horse to illustrate an approach to healthy relationships and excellent performance by cultivating the heart. This dynamic visual has proven beneficial to all levels of mentorship.
