Why horses? Horses have survived for thousands of years due to their ability to get along with and depend upon one another.

They test each other to establish their position within the herd, deferring only to other horses they feel will keep them safe. In a world in which money, control and status are non-existent, horse leaders respond immediately to the thoughts, feelings and sometimes hidden agendas of those around them, and communicate with authority, purpose, authenticity and confidence-all without "saying" a single word.

Like some employees, horses can either be willing participants or resentful "herd members", making them ideal partners for teaching self-leadership and teamwork.

"There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man."
Winston Churchill
