That's not me in the video although I wish I could do a cartwheel off a horse . This was the "sales" video.

I'm working with her now to get her response on lesser cues. Thanks for the info!

I can usually figure out what the initials stand CA and PNH. But I can't figure them all out & I am sure there are others like me. It would be helpful if posters could spell it out at least once for those of us who are still learning.

Those are Parelli terms.... I am sure a PP follower will correct if I get them wrong but I believe it stands for Left Brain Introvert and Right Brain Extrovert.

That is correct. Basically what Parelli have done is taken the human psychometric quadrant model of stable/unstable, introvert/extrovert and relabelled stable as left brain and unstable as right brain to sell as a horse psychology system.

So you now have;

Left brain extrovert
Left brain introvert
Right brain extrovert
Right brain introvert.

Personally I believe it has no basis in science whatsoever in relation to horse psychology. However it can help people approach a horse problem perhaps more systematically. So if it helps the human with their horse I see no harm in it.

Oh, okay. I saw a program Linda Parelli did once on "horsenality". I saw no basis in it either & turned it off. I actually compared it to this one person doing demonstrations at the horse show last year. Basically, she was saying she could look at a horse & have a mental conversation with it giving the horse a dialog to go along with hers. Then she said it applies to all animals. She gave a story about when she was at work, she remembered she left the trash in the kitchen instead of putting it out. Meanwhile, at home, her little dog picked up on her thoughts about the trash & decided to destroy it.
I walked out on that lecture, too.
