Horses are prey animals who live in groups called herds. The very survival of each and every herd member depends on the effectiveness of the herd leader and the herd’s ability to function as a cohesive team. To ensure their continued survival, horses must constantly be aware of threats to their herd, including predators, weak leadership, and poor team dynamics. We can watch this survival instinct in our domestic horses as their reactions to their environment will clearly dictate whether all is well and they are ‘at ease’, verses if they perceive a potential threat to their safety and are ‘at attention’. When we work with horses, they provide us with immediate feedback on how they perceive and categorize us based on these principles. It is instantly clear whether the horses consider us a good leader, worthy herd member, or a potential threat. Best of all, horses continually reassess everything in their environment, including us, and will respond differently to even subtle changes we make allowing us to test and fine tune our skills. With feedback from the horses, even the most successful leaders and teams will enhance their leadership presence, communication skills, and team dynamics, helping to unlock a new level of performance.
