I can see how this can be helpful, but I've been doing this for years. I always adapt my training plan based on the personality of the horse I'm with - I've never found it difficult to realize the form training must take to be most beneficial based on the personality of the horse.

I guess it's good for beginners? I agree though, horses are like people and you simply cannot categorize them, which makes it more confusing to people who don't understand proper reaction to action.

When Parelli first came out with this, I was certainly not a beginner and it has completely changed how fast I get results with horses.

I never needed a test of my horses to see what I was dealing with. Simply adjusted my training based on experience and common sense. I am not aware of top trainers like Lugar, Breezy, Cindy,Rich, Mario and a ton of others that successfully get their horses to where they need to be by filling out a chart for each. If the filling out of a chart IS needed to understand your horse then I would say you really need to rethink your percieved ability and the possibility that you may never have the ability to be a good trainer.

It is the exceptional trainer that can watch a horse move and withing 10 minutes figure out how to approach the training of that particular horse. Many of these people came well before Parelli and many are out there just doing their thing right now on their own using their instinct and experience alone to guide them..

So simply because I choose to go about working with horses differently, means I won't ever be a good and successful trainer? Hmm....interesting......

Spirithorse, I have no doubt that you are a great trainer.

But you simply can't stick an individual horse into a personality group.

All horses, people, animals, etc are different.

It might help, but I wouldn't fully rely on it.

Yes, all horses are individuals, however they all show *some form* of one or more of the can be mild, moderate or extreme tendencies. It's worked for me and all the horses I've worked with.

Right. But I wouldn't fully rely on it.

Like I said. It helps.

Sheesh. She believes in this, others don't. I think by now we all know that we differ in opinion on this, and no amount of argueing is going to make Spirithorse change her view or admit any perceived failings on the part of her mentor. Can't you just leave it?

I live by these horsenalities. YES I could adjust my methods by working with them and figureing it out over time. But these helped so much with makeing so many less mistakes and figureing out what WORKS for what horse MUCH faster.

My mare is a LBE/LBI/RBI. She's 3 horsenalities. No horse is really just ONE. Chance is a lot more LBI but LBE comes out a lot as well. With these I have a 50/50 chance :P of it working. And I have a lot more willing horse for it. Im not just forcing her.

Other horses I've worked with this has helped a lot as well.
Its hard to read horses at that exact moment and I can read one horse as being totally LBI but it turns out they are RBI... Makes a difference but you learn as you go. Like I phased 4 the horse, and he totally flipped out... and I just took it and went with the other side of the chart in a way.. from then on it went a lot more smoothy and finally he WAS LB and I had to switch BACK over. But that was the goal anyways. :)
