Budget Vets' directors, Peter & Katherine took a group of veterinary staff (including vets and nurses) to Iceland over the first weekend in September 2015 for a team building exercise.
The group will be rode native, Icelandic horses for long distances over challenging terrain relied on one another to stay safe and positive. On top of this, each rider had to inspire trust in an animal many times their size, a skill which we're sure you can appreciate is often required in the consult room!
The benefits of this kind of exercise and the relationships that it helps to form are instrumental in our staff offering the best care to our patients, often under pressure and in challenging circumstances.
With thanks to Reykjavík Riding Center, for their expertise and hospitality.
