Country Pursuits Team Building Activities

1hr to 8hrs Activity - (suitable for 5 – 250 guests - Outdoors)

Our multi-activity days offer an exciting mix of unusual driving, shooting, animal handling, inflatables and outdoor pursuits, suitable for any age group and ability. These activities combine to create one of the most exhilarating ways to develop relations with your colleagues and bond your group. The activities can be operated within any outdoor location - subject to venue agreement. We would be delighted to recommend possible venues to you.

After an introduction over coffee and safety briefing by our event compere, teams rotate around activities selected to meet your guest profile and venue. This event is normally run as a competition, with teams marked on ability, leadership and motivation. At the close of the day, our compere hosts an award ceremony with humorous spot prizes and winning team prizes.

Our team of instructors and event managers are friendly and supportive, making every effort to ensure that your guests feel comfortable, develop relationships with their colleagues, break though inhibitions and most importantly have a superb time.

We are very happy to provide just one or many activities. As an indication of the number of activities required for large groups, ideal team size is 5-12 participants, and each team requires a separate activity. For example a group of 50 delegates will divide into 6 teams and will require 6 activities throughout a full day.

Animal Handling Activities For Events

Experience these incredible animals for yourself. A light hearted and memorable activity.

 

Duck Herding - (minimum space: 25m x 25m)

One Man and his Dog’ has nothing on this! There is scope for much hilarity as guests try to control the collies and herd the ducks through an obstacle course, under instruction from a top sheepdog handler.

Duck Herding

Gun Dog Handling - (minimum space: 35m x 35m)

Experienced, professional trainers bring a range of breeds such as Labradors, Spaniels, Pointers and Retrievers, along with puppies whenever possible. Guests have close contact with the friendly and approachable dogs, learn about, and participate in training methods from simple obedience to challenging retrieves. There is also a complex agility course to be completed as a team relay against the clock. Always a popular part of the Country Pursuits event.

Ferret Racing - (minimum space: 35m x 35m)

An original way to entertain your guests with these wonderful creatures. Guests become involved with the race, entering the ferret into the pipe course then dashing to the other end of the course encouraging their ferret to win the race. For added interest, Ferret Roulette is incorporated where the ferret is placed in a drum with a number of exits at the base and guests bet on which exit the ferret will appear from.

Falconry

Under the supervision of our professional falconer, guests are invited to handle and fly these beautiful birds. Maximum participation and interaction with the birds is encouraged. It is an unforgettable moment when a Hawk swoops out of the sky and lands on your gloved fist! Falconry fits in well with a Multi Activity Day or as part of a Family Fun Day where displays can be held in a central arena.

Driving Activities For Events

A once-in-a-life-time opportunity to experience the thrill and sensational power of motor vehicles. The day includes full training. Each activity is supplied with an 8ft x 8ft marquee or hospitality trailer unit, safety and support equipment, crash helmets and safety pads, course cones and obstacles, safety pit lane markers, circuit control flags and a Firebird Instructor.

 

Blindfold 4 x 4 Driving

A true test of teamwork and communication. The blindfolded driver is instructed by a sighted passenger and a slalom course has to be negotiated safely! Teams race against the clock with penalties being incurred for hitting any gates.

Honda Pilots

These off-road buggies were originally designed for dune racing. They have a phenomenal rate of acceleration and the driver is fully protected within a roll cage. Despite their advanced design, pilots are simple to drive, with fully automatic hand operated controls. Guests race against the clock over a flagged course. The pilots can also be used for team building where the crew participate in a "Team Relay". Versatility and speed make Honda Pilots one of our most popular driving activities.

Powerturns

Designed and built by an ex-Army Engineer, these exciting 2 seater buggies have to be controlled by two coordinated drivers using levers to power each of the two separate engines. Quick acceleration produces 'wheelies' but small drogue wheels prevent them from flipping over. You will be amazed at the performance of these extraordinary and unusual machines.

Quad Bikes

Master the art of the quad bike by embarking upon a course that will include a slalom, ramps, seesaw and hill climbing. After a practice, you will compete in a timed race and earn extra points for skilled driving.

Reverse Steer Land Rover

Our specially designed Land Rover is designed to confuse the driver! Turn the steering wheel left and the vehicle goes right. Guests have to negotiate a tricky course without hitting any flags. Circuits are timed to establish the event winner.

Segways

Segways are two-wheeled, self-balancing, environmentally friendly machines which take riding to a whole new level. The Segway requires no special skills as it takes care of the balancing, and virtually anyone can use one. With street based and off road machines available, there are a multitude of activities Segways can be used for. From off road adventure trails, treasure hunts, 5 a side polo and even egg and spoon races, the limits and fun are endless.

Rage Buggies (pair)

Really fast and great fun, an off road buggy with an excellent chassis combined with long travel suspension satisfying a need for speed. It has a reduction gearbox, which has an ATB differential (with optional reverse) and a torque converter system widely used on many other ATV machines. The engine is a 670cc 24hp v-twin which gives good performance and a top speed in excess of 50mph. This is probably our most popular motorised activity and it’s easy to see why once you’ve done a lap and felt that adrenaline pumping.
