I bet you will get a taste (a tiny taste lol) of what I've had to deal with from Arie's opinions of people. If you can balance firmness and friendliness, and use a lot of feel, this horse will teach you A LOT! Oh, while I'm thinking of it, if you haven't already, go and read the article in this month's Savvy Times magazine about being fair, fast, firm and friendly...that should help you!

I think this is a good opportunity for you. Sounds like he is pretty challenging...LBE/RBI? Wow, I'd like to get my hands on him! Lol. All that displaced behavior....pawing, grinding introverted behavior showing extreme stress (mental and emotional for him). The sweating his showed while riding was not because of physical stress, but because of mental and emotional stress. Once he was treated correctly (when everything was done FOR him, not TO him) he didn't sweat (hmm, how interesting right?!).

I'd like to see video! Lol. Sounds like it's going to be a fine balance of getting respect and earning trust....I'd bet that he is innately LBE but as a learner he goes RBI to cope with stress...which can lead to a RBE explosion, so you'll have to go VERY slow with him while teaching him (but also be ready to come up and protect your space).

I'm not into parelli, so please excuse my ignorance.
Are these specific parelli terms, or acronyms to something else?
I sat here and read that last bit I bolded and went "I think my own head is going to explode".
Thanks if you could explain it. :)

My project pony this year was goofy like that; no patience, and no ground manners, especially.

Just be persistent, and patient with him, and don't let him get away with things; by all means don't abuse him...duh! But like you already stated, he needs a good dose of good solid ground work, and reminding of what manners are. Once those are under way, you will have an easier time of working him undersaddle, because he will understand that you are his leader, and that he can trust you.

ohmyitschelle, you are right, those are Parelli terms. LBI is left brain (I can't remember what the "I" stands for), and the RBI is right brain . If I remember correctly, left brain is analytical and right brain is creative. I'm sure Spirithorse can explain it better.

Thanks iridehorses... I thought as much, but also know that Linda Tellington-Jones goes into this kind of thing in depth in her book on horse behaviour... so thought I'd ask.
Thanks :)

LBI left brain introvert
RBI right brain introvert
LBE left brain extrovert
RBE right brain extrovert

I think.. ?

LBI = Left Brain Introvert
LBE = Left Brain Extrovert
RBI = Right Brain Introvert
RBE = Right Brain Extrovert

Left Brain is the horse's thinking side of the brain, the right side is their prey animal/natural instinct side.

Savvyhearts got it :)

Rb is the fear side ... prey instincts like what was said above.
Lb is thinking...calm...even dominate side lol

Spirit Horse can explain the Extrovert and Introvert... I have a really hard time explaining it.

Oh and thanks M2P :)

LBI is left brained introvert (this horse is calm, confident and dominant innately and can sometimes be called lazy...they don't put much effort into things and can be argumentative...they need incentive and motivation to do things for us, and the challenge is to get them to WANT to do things and to offer us things).

RBI is right brained introvert (these horses are like shrinking violets, they are very unconfident and scared and tend to freeze, then explode into a RBE....right brained extrovert.....mess which is very dangerous...these horses need us to go VERY, VERY slowly and to take the time it takes for them to build confidence).

Introverts tend to not move their feet much, be it LB (left brain which is confident) or RB (which is unconfident, fear based). Extroverts, both RB and LB move their feet a lot and need us to redirect that energy and put it to a purpose so they can focus again. Make sense? :)
