Every horse, unless kept alone 100% of the time... will be herd bound, some more then others... what you need to do is become a firm leader, keep your horses attention on you, and work with it away from the other horses... Your horse has to learn that when it leaves the herd, she has to focus on you.
My filly is herd bound, but when I am with her, she ignores the other horses, but when she is in a paddock alone, with no horse in sight, and I am not with her, she calls out, runs around, etc... as soon as I go in and put a halter on her, lead her around, she tunes into me, and doesn't care about the others...
