Well, I hope your statements are fact.
I have begun the process of contacting the author and if published document does not contain any reference to LP or any other person, then LP does have an actual legal problem.

I actually LOVE that book! lmfao.
the auther does actually admit in the start of the book that your horse may be a mixture of 2 or more of the personalities, and that they are just general horseonalities, not something to train by.
but it is sooo much fun! haha!

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

Why would Linda need a friend to point out that horses all have their own personalities? I would hope she could figure that out on her own! The term "horsenality" is just a horsey name for personality. I've know horses have their own personalities from the first time I ever met horses...didn't need someone to point it out to me, as I'm sure most people who are around horses have also figured out for themselves, even without the "catchy" name.

Linda also came up with the idea of feeding your horse a carrot when it turns to bite you too; however, I think that is a terrible idea personally and wouldn't try it.

It honestly doesn't even matter who came up with the term, it still means the same thing, a horse's personality. I have heard other people besides Parelli even use that exact term before the Parelli's were a big item. I call my mare's attitude Divatude..because her name is Diva. Everyone comes up with weird names for things. The concept is not Linda Parelli's alone and she is not the first person to suggest such a thing. The Parelli's just have a great marketing team for their version of the same old same old with their own cutesy tricks thrown in to make it their "own" brand.

Why do you want to do it in first place? Just curious.

Linda's friend did not point out to her horses have their own horsenalities. Come on. That's ridiculous.

I've done the whole shove a treat in the horse's mouth when it turns to bite you (under certain circumstances) and it does work. One success story is my own personal horse who does not try to bite anymore because of that advice. He stands like a perfect gentleman now.

I had a horse try and bit me once. ONCE. They did not get a treat either.

No kidding! I would never treat a biting horse...I guess if your horse kicked you maybe Linda thinks you should give him a treat then too....after you pick yourself up off the floor, if you can.

Aberrant behavior should NEVER be rewarded, period. At least not for my animals.

I went looking for this book on Amazon and in the description it actually mentions there is a quiz online to find out your horses personality.

The Quiz

My mare is a Wallflower...big surprise there! Not. My DH calls her Timid Tammy. My gelding is a Reluctant Rock star...thinks he's all that but doesn't want to work for it. LOL
