Equine Leadership Program

The Silverdale Academy in collaboration with TAFE NSW, is proud to offer the Statement of Attainment for Emerging Leaders in the Equine Industry. This course has been developed to address leadership priorities, communication and team dynamics in the thoroughbred racing and breeding industry. 


This course is a face-to-face workshop program supported by webinar tutorials, providing opportunity for discovery, interaction, reflection and mastery in supervision and leadership. 

Course Outline

The dynamics within a horse herd and a workplace team share some interesting parallels, as well as some key differences. Join us and explore them.

Understanding these similarities and differences can be valuable for leaders and team members alike. By recognising the instinctive behaviours that influence group dynamics, we can develop strategies to build trust, improve communication, and foster a more collaborative and productive work environment.
