Horses are creatures of flight. In the wild, it is their instinct to follow a pack rather than stand alone as it makes them a target for nearby threat. Domesticated horses have also picked up this habit, which is why when a horse loses it’s rider over a jump, the horse will continue to follow the pack. This is why we often see riderless horses continuing to follow the pack, rather than continuing out of love for jumps racing.
