PostHeaderIcon Extreme Words of Wisdom

I’ve been formulating how to convey the learning experience I’m getting with Lucky Star. He is an extreme left brain introvert. I’ll say my piece later. This will help you understand why I have developed such a deep relationship with Lucky Star.
Words from Linda Parelli:Linda’s Blog has posted a new blog: ‘Horsenality™ Is Not An Excuse!’

The reason for this blog is that I keep hearing this comment: “People are
using Horsenality™ as an excuse!” We’ve all heard people say “I can’t ask
my horse to do this; he’s an introvert” or “She’ll always be crabby and
bitchy because she’s a Left-Brain Extrovert!’”

Let’s be clear – knowing your horse’s Horsenality is not about being able
to make excuses. It’s about bringing your full attention to this question: are
you bringing out the worst or the best in your horse? Knowing about Horsenality
means you have the inside scoop as to what it is your horse trusts and respects
in a leadership style that would bring out the most positive behaviors. And when
you know just how to approach your horse, it will help you make faster progress
and get better results.

Let’s talk about introverts:

Introverts take time to process your request, either because they can’t do it
or they don’t want to do it right away. Guess which is which!

Right-Brain Introvert – can’t do it. That’s because their emotions get in
the way so their first reaction is stress, and stress makes them clam up and
shut down until they trust you and can feel completely confident around you.
Putting it in human terms, this is the Right-Brain Introvert mother who is both
caring and effective with her children. She can think on her feet and do the
right thing in the moment. But in another setting, she is tentative and easily
intimidated. The more extroverted the situation, the more introverted the
Right-Brain Introvert becomes. These horses are often called unpredictable,
aloof, tense, and oversensitive.

Left-Brain Introvert – won’t do it. That’s because their opinion of you
gets in the way – they think you are lower than them in the pecking order!
These horses are often called stubborn, lazy, and arrogant.

When a horse is acting tense, over-reactive, stubborn, lazy, etc., that’s
because the rider is bringing out those behaviors. Rushing an introvert will do
this – not giving them time to think, and in the case of the Left-Brain
Introvert, not being provocative enough at the same time. Note that
“provocative” does not necessarily mean to do it faster!
