Well it depends on what instinct. I will guess you mean in a dangerous situation for a horse. If there is a frightening event a domesticated horse will usually gallop to their home, or most likely, the barn. That is very dangerous, especially if the barn has caught fire. But for a wild horse their first instinct is usually to run away.
