Great stuff BSMS and Jaydee....so many people are out-horsed or not well matched to their horses according to the rider's level and the horse's level/training or lack thereof. In many of these cases, the owner's ego takes over and they insist on attempting to ride or train a horse that is beyond their level....JUST so they can say did. People get into a whole lot of trouble when their ego takes over.....safety being number one. The saying "green on green results in black and blue" is sooooo true.

I'm an introvert too! However, I am NOT lazy and I an reactive. I could be considered boring because I can sit, quietly for hours and be totally ok with that. I do also live in my head. I can have a whole conversation with myself in my head and solve things. I do over-think everything. I over analyze. However, I appreciate others' coversation and love to just 'watch' people do it, while I sit quietly and take it all in. However, I do worry and do have anxiety, especially when it comes to being a perfectionist. Ugh.

Thank you Pegasus! I appreciate you answering my question. It has been a very interesting discussion. I would love to hear more about the personalities and less about the marketing though. I find behavioral studies fascinating even if no one else does :)

Haha you just described me as well xD
Except I'm more on the lazy side (i still walk/jog almost every day though). And actually I HAVE been sitting here quietly for hours reading things and having conversations with myself lol.... Haha that makes me sound like a crazy person! But then again who isn't crazy in their own way? lol

Has anyone ever thought that it takes a trained psychologist to figure people out. I would think it would take someone that well trained to figure out horses as well. Horses have always been categorized but often referred to as "forward" ie like to be going somewhere, "spooky" self explanatory, "dull" over worked, "spoiled" self explanatory, etc and any observant horseman knew to handle each differently. A lot less confusing as well. Once a person spends time with a horse hopefully there's an understanding of how to deal with it, not psychoanalyse it.
