She additionally attracts at the habit of mature horse herds, in addition to the herding cultures of Africa and Mongolia, to debunk theories of dominance hierarchies, problem ingrained notions of “survival of the fittest,” and exhibit the facility of a consensual management within which governing roles are fluid.
Kohanov then adapts those classes into twelve robust guiding ideas we will be able to all comprise into our paintings and private lives. Eloquent and provocative, this is often horse experience for everybody who seeks to thrive within the herds all of us run in — our groups, careers, households, and friendships.
