OUR VISION AND REASON FOR BEING
WE ARE IN BUSINESS TO RAISE THE LEVELS OF HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS
FOR THE GOOD OF OUR HUMANITY AND OUR PLANET
“Jess and I share a passion for life and our planet. I first spoke out and wrote a letter of outcry about the cruelty of zoos when I was ten years old and lived in Singapore. It was published in the Singapore paper. Jess was responsible for bringing attention to the condition of the brown pelican population and his work on this resulted in them being removed from the endangered species list. But we felt like we were running around putting band-aids on social/environmental issues rather than getting to the root of what was causing them. So we paused to answer this question: What is causing these social and environmental issues? The answer: a lack of human consciousness.
We imagined a world where fear is eradicated and consciousness reigns. When that vision is fulfilled, everyone has the courage and awareness to use their creativity and intelligence in service to everyone and every living thing. Often, in ways that may have once seemed impossible. That was a vision worth living for. And so, leveraging my personal experience of the transformation that happens when we step across our edge and face our greatest fears, Vista Caballo was born.”
EQUIP VISIONARY, PEOPLE-CENTRIC LEADERS AND THEIR TEAMS
WITH OUR PROVEN, SCIENCE-BASED TOOLS
TO CONNECT WITH THEIR PURPOSE AND ACHIEVE THEIR MISSIONS AT AN ACCELERATED RATE.
WHEN THEY SUCCEED WE ALL BENEFIT
Vista Caballo facilitates an awakening of peoples’ reason for being-which is inevitably linked to being in service to others or the Earth itself-and gives them to confidence to fully live it. We are creating a tipping point where a critical mass of people have self-actualized, and thus the world is peaceful and prosperous for the children of all species for all time.
We work with mission-driven organizations and people to challenge what they think they know so they can discover, and embrace, what they don’t.
We deliver peak experiences through customized, transformative experiential and digital learning.Think simulators. People experience themselves as fearless outside of their comfort zones.They increase their awareness-the cornerstone to great human beingness and great leadership. They see and experience the truth. Once they are on the other side of self-deception they no longer want to go back to their status quo, they no longer fear life and they embrace limitless possibility. People learn how to think and lead outside their comfort zone from a place of peace and love. This is how they, their companies, organizations and communities access and reach their potential as great leaders and human beings.
Great humans make great leaders who can heal our people and our planet.
IN 2005 LISA & JESS BEGAN BUILDING WHAT WOULD LATER BE CALLED “VISTA CABALLO.”
Founded in the Great Sage Plains of SW Colorado, the couple named their human and leadership strategic development center after a mountain in the distance that is shaped like a regal horse’s head. The name also reflected the work Lisa and Jess would now do: using “the perspective of a horse” to help people unlock, to become centered and mindful, so they could reimagine the world and transform their vision of what’s possible.
Today, hundreds of people, including CEOs, financiers, philanthropists, entrepreneurs, inventors, doctors, consultants, psychologists and athletes have gone through the transformative work.
As a Certified B Corporation® Vista Caballo has been recognized as Best For The World by B Lab five consecutive times. Vista Caballo is also a member of 1% for the Planet.
We are on a mission to provide mission-driven companies, leaders and their teams with access to their true human potential. We equip and empower leaders with our unique science-based system to develop themselves while they solve our world’s greatest social and environmental challenges.
Each member of our herd is an expert in presence. They roam freely across our property. Working with Vista Caballo, allows you to step out of your world and experience theirs. Our transformative leadership development programs stem from the insights we’ve gained from working with horses to help people access their real potential.
Many people ask whether they need to have any previous experience with horses. The answer is no. We have had clients with extensive experience and others who have never touched a horse. The one thing they have in common is that after working with Vista Caballo their perspective about horses, among other things, is different.
Vista Caballo is a 160 acre ranch on the back of the Baby Grand Canyon in the ancient Anasazi lands of the Great Sage Plains. At night you watch the Milky Way as it fills the expansive sky. This area is one of the last places on earth with no light pollution. There is no noise pollution.The horses are waiting. You’re in a landscape that is predominantly sky. If a raven flies overhead, you hear air whistling through its wings. If a horse snorts, you sense it. You’re in their world. While you’re experiencing these things, you’re making discoveries about yourself: “This is the thing I’ve always known.” When you finally have said what’s important, you return home. Transformed.
Jess and Lisa Arie co-founded Vista Caballo in 2005.
Jess, a graduate of Texas A&M, is a former wildlife ecologist, elite athlete, and four time 24-hour race champion. Jess runs the Vista Caballo ranch operations.
The couple live and work on their private nature preserve, with their herd of free-roaming horses, where they custom-design their strategic gap analysis and discovery experiences for Vista Caballo’s clients.
