“Thank you so much, the cattle drive was a lot of fun, the team really enjoyed themselves and had heaps of fun. Darryl commented this morning that it made the team open up and talk to each other which was really great and the aim of the team building. The organization and welcome from everyone at the ranch was brilliant.” Leanne Jones, Discovery
What is a Cattle Drive?
A Cattle Drive is where a herd of cattle is moved from one place to another, and herded by Cowboys on horses. Back in the late 1800’s cattle were driven overland to the closest railway stations to move them North where the price of beef was best.
Did you Know? Cattle herds travelled an average of 25 kilometres a day.
This is Teambuilding for the more courageous at heart where you too can experience the thrill of being a Cowboy for a day! The focus of this Teambuilding activity is real teamwork, as members of your team are forced to communicate and take responsibility. This is also a fantastic opportunity for leaders to emerge from your team. Everyone must do their part to keep the cattle on track during this cattle drive and team members will each get a position to ride according to their experience with horses.
Of course we have some real cowboys who are internationally trained and have experience with cattle drives, barrel racing, and many other skills that are important to being a real cowboy, so your team is in safe hands. At the Diamond X Cowboy Ranch, you can relax and let down your hair, while living out the cowboy dream.
Have you noticed that your Team’s energy levels and enthusiasm is starting to wane? It’s that time of year, when winter is already too long, holidays are a distant memory, and the productivity of your company is just not as high as it could be. While the mid-year slump can be hard to avoid, there is one sure way to boost morale and the mood of your employees while motivating them for the last big push before the year ends.
Let us create a Mid-Year Function that is combined with a Teambuilding Event and see instant great results, with employees that are more engaged and eager to go the extra mile and work determinedly better as a team for the remainder of the year.
Evenings on the Diamond X Cowboy Ranch are magical, with more stars than you’ll ever see in the city, and of course most of our visitors are City Slickers with taxing jobs like yourself. After a productive day spent Teambuilding at the Ranch, your team will gather around the fire and reflect on the day’s events.
Staring into the fire surrounded by the night-time bush sounds the conversation easily turns to traditional fire-side stories, myths and legends.
Storytelling is a great way to build on the interpersonal relationships of a group, giving people (especially the shy ones) a chance to talk in front of a group but in a more fun and social setting. The crackle of the fire and the low lighting of being outside lends itself perfectly to reducing the stage fright and enhancing the imagination of the audience.
Just one of the many reasons to book at Diamond X Cowboy Ranch!
