Horses are prey animals. Humans are predators. A Horse’s primary instinct is awareness, it’s second is flight. As a prey animal, a horse’s survival depends on reading the environment for signs of danger. Humans are into focus. Horses are concerned about how they are going; humans tend to be concerned about where they are going. If we can find a way to build rapport and gain the trust of a completely different species, it will be so much easier to handle the human-to-human confrontations or mis-communications that we all come across in our working lives.
