question about horse herds 

Can somebody who knows more about than I do explain the "natural" + "gelding" part of this statement from Taylor, et al. in "Early Pastoral Economies and Herding Transitions in Eastern Eurasia"

"free-range horses organize themselves in their natural social structure, with a lead stallion & a harem of mares, geldings, & juveniles."
