A dear friend of mine sent me an interesting article the other day. It's about a recent study which reveals, that those that are considered good female leaders often have a background with horses.
The study shows that girls who's been used to the horse stable environment will later do well in the business world because they've been used the responsibility looking after a living creature. Also the ability of co-operation is something they will have gained through working with a horse, and that skill combined with a sense of responsibility is important traits of a good leader. Coexistence with the horse and others in the stable will train young girls in communication and what it means to take a leading role. It is said that this seperates horse riding from other hobbies because horse riding will challenge girls in ways that creates a sense of identity. Also abilities such as non-verbal communication, patience, caring for others and being able to work systematically and with the awareness of consequences are attributed to a daily routine working with horses.
Maybe it's time for a lesson on a horseback? LOL!!
