Spirithorse, thanks for posting the chart. I'm sure there are a lot of people who will use it to help guide them in their efforts to understand and work with their horses, whether or not they are Parelli desciples.

I've been on this forum for about a month or so, and I'm amazed at all the negativity. It's nice to be passionate about what you believe, but . . .

I used the horsenality chart and my horse also has traits of multiple types. The idea is to achieve balance with the horse, so if you already have a well-balanced horse, that is great! It can definitely change over time, with the right (or wrong!) kind of training, with age development, etc.

I think it likely that most horses have a basic tendency towards a kind of 'horsenality,' and evaluating mine has been extremely helpful. She was starting to disengage and knowing to find what motivates has turned things around greatly. She is still young, so I expect there will be changes as she gets older too.
