Re: [RC] Being the Herd Leader - Maureen A. Fager

The horse does need to know who is in charge, and for the human to be in charge, (whether the human thinks they are horse or not) the horse must submit to the human. Here is an interesting link to an aticle about "pecking order" or "herd hierarcy or dynamics" that is very intersting. It is written by Andrew McLean, a horse trainerand animal behaiour scholar from Austraila. His persepctive is very interesting and a worthwhile read. Check him out!

If you like this article, there are others by him on the 'net, to find them I google "Andrew McLean horse ('cause there are other Andrew McLeans out there.) I've found his articles quite compelling and enjoy his scientific perspective.

Happy Trails,
Maureen

From snowy Reno, Nevada where no trails are to be found at this time! :(
