Most horses actually lie closer to one of the other quadrants. Every horse can become right brained! The quadrants just show where they are pretty much when they are home in a normal environment. Even though my LBE is on the cusp of LBI she has still ha RB moments, she just is quicker to go back to LB than an RBE in the same scary situation. I'm an RBI, but I still have plenty of times that I'm an LBE just having fun. As you gain confidence you are able to open up, same with our horses. One of the best sessions I watched was Linda teaching the fire, water, air and earth elements of man course. We are so much our personality that it affects our body shape, physical attributes, and even our favorite foods. It's so true as well. I love water based fruits and veggies, have massive eyes from the day I was born, and am small. All RBI/water traits.

I agree Nakotaheaven, sister's mare and that mares foal are both pretty strong LBE's but the other three are mixtures. One of my geldings tends to be whatever includes social/playful behavior but he also has a tendency to overreact to scary situations. My other gelding has always been more shy and bonds to one person (like an RBI), but he is also stubborn and food oriented like an LBI horse.

Sassasavvy, I've heard of the earth/wind/fire/air types but have never "typed" myself. Do you know where I could find that?

Has anyone just stopped and taken the time to .... observe, work with and interact with their horse?

I don't give a dang what label anyone wants to put on it.

It's up the the OWNER to spend A LOT OF TIME with the horse ... on the ground, grooming, in the coral, working and playing with ALL disciplines needed.

It took me OVER A YEAR to correct lots of VERY bad habits from a "natural horse person". Horse great in the stable area and a complete mess just TRYING to get him out the gate. I moved him FAST. Went to gentle but VERY FIRM far away from the original trainer that had bonded with him and him her.

eeo11horse: I don't know where to find it. I watched it in the instructor course. This is how it correlates though and you can read up on what you are. RBI- Water, RBE- Fire, LBE-Earth, LBI-Air.

I only know I have an LBI because a Parelli BO told me he was. He does fir the category. It has nothing to do with me spending time with him, etc. I treat him no different than any horse I have ever owned. I just find it interesting, and it really does fit. Doesn't CHANGE anything I do. I just happen to have the open mind to think about it.

It is also not a NH thing. It is pretty much a PP thing, so to close the dor to all the "NH" folks may be a mistake. Some have things to offer.

Just a suggestion.

Even if this is imperfect to some and insanity to others......to me, it helped me learn about horses actually having different personalities and pointed the traits out to me. I was a new horse owner then and it really helped me at the time. I now still always keep it in the back of my mind when I think about training techniques with each horse I interact with.

First horse was a RBE
Percheron now is LBI
Pinto now is LBE

You guys are saying what I been thinking :)

And my first two horses that I started really learning them on were LBE (that we originally thought was a LBI) and RBI. Since then we've certainly had: RBI, LBE, RBE, and LBI lol, have had the whole nine yards xD

I understand where you're coming from but knowing a general idea of their "type" can help you when training. It helps you understand how their mind works, how to motivate them, and what they need most from you.
