Horses do not communicate verbally, and as such they pay attention to what is happening to themselves and others in the moment. HorseDream Canada values and highlights the important skills one can achieve by providing a unique model of professional development training that is centered on interaction with horses:
In the wild, the horse’s survival depends on being in a herd, and everybody within that herd working as part of a team. The herd will have a natural hierarchy and each horse will have a role in that team. This is much like our social groups and corporate teams today. As a herd animal, horses are always open to leadership when it is real and congruent. They do not have agendas or acknowledge titles. Horses respond to who you are in the present. The horse will react to you exactly as you present yourself, reflecting your leadership style, how it's perceived and received.
