From the time we enter day care, the process of disconnecting our inner beings from our natural intuition begins and we are encouraged to replace emotional responses with logic. In the process we lose ourselves.
When a horse interacts with a human, they do not care whether that person is the manager of a Fortune 500 company or an idler with absolutely no ambition. All they care about is whether the human cares about them.
Similar to leading others in the workplace, if you are not consistent in your relationship with a horse, it will not follow you or respect you. It will ignore you, knowing that it is stronger than you are.
