A herd of horses and a team of humans.
What could they possibly have in common?
Horse herds have a complex social dynamics that utilize teamwork, cooperation and loyalty.
A strong herd has clearly delineated roles and responsibilities, yet its members are flexible enough to step in to a different position if needed.
In order for a herd to survive and thrive, a horse herd requires strong and consistent leadership along with predictable routines and responses.
Horses will only follow a leader that they can trust and respect.
The herd trusts that its leader will provide a means for survival via food, shelter and protection from predators, and sometimes, in order to protect the herd, the leader will send away a member who is undermining the survival of the others.
Members of a horse herd communicate with each other via verbal and non verbal cues, much as humans in the workplace do.
Horses instinctively maintain a healthy balance between work, play and rest.
