Running Horses Tire Cover Horses have evolved to live in herds. As with many animals that live in large groups, establishing a stable hierarchical system or “pecking order” is essential to reduce aggression and increase group cohesion. This is often, but not always, a linear system. In non-linear hierarchies horse, A may be dominant over horse B, who is dominant over horse C. Yet, horse C may be prevalent over horse A. Dominance can depend on a variety of factors, including an individual’s need for a particular resource at a given time. Therefore, it can be variable throughout the lifetime of the herd or individual animal. Some horses may be dominant overall resources, and others may be submissive for all resources. It is important to note that this is not part of natural horse behavior, and it is forced by humans forcing horses to live together in limited space with limited resources. So-called “dominant horses” are often horses with dysfunctional social abilities – caused by human intervention in their early lives (weaning, sound isolation, etc.).
Once a dominant hierarchy is established, horses will travel in rank order more often than not.
Most young horses in the wild are allowed to stay with the herd until they reach sexual maturity, usually in their first or second year. Studies of wild herds have shown that the herd stallion will usually drive out both colts and fillies; this may be an instinct that prevents inbreeding. The colts are driven out from several herds usually join together in small “bachelor” groups until those who can establish dominance over an older stallion in another pack. The fillies usually join another band soon afterward.
Bands are defined as harem models. Each band is led by a dominant mare (sometimes called the “lead mare” or the “boss mare”). The composition of bands changes as young animals are driven out of their natal band and join other bands or as stallions challenge each other for dominance.
In bands, there is usually a single “herd” or “lead” stallion, though occasionally, a few less-dominant males may remain on the fringes of the group. The reproductive success of the lead station is determined in part by his ability to prevent other males from mating with the mares of his harem. The stallion also exercises protective behavior, patrolling around the band and taking the initiative when the crew encounters a potential threat. The band’s stability is not affected by size but tends to be more stable when subordinate stallions are attached to the harem.
