I’m not a PP fan, nor am I anti-PP either.
What I find so interesting about trainers who largely market to the masses, is that they understand that People perceive, receive, and process information differently.
This is where they are smart at figuring out a certain sector of people and catering to that “market“.

Some people find breaking things down into categories very helpful. Those type of people might benefit from being able to break/categorize their horse like this, like the horsenality. I don’t follow this method, but did find the idea somewhat enlightening.

Others need a no-nonsense approach. If horse does “xx” then human needs to do “yy.”
Still others need things put into terms that they can understand or relate to, like in anthropomorphism.
And yet others are able to get out of their own mind and understand herd dynamics, prey animal instinct, and how horses thinks without trying to humanize them in any way.

I personally think that for whatever type of person you (collective you) happen to be, if you can find a trainer, method, way, style, or system that is beneficial to making your relationship with your horse better…...well then that can only be a good thing.
Whatever style that happens to be.
