Does your horse get sticky feet when under stress? Does he buck or rear instead of moving forward? If so, then your horse probably has a Metal, Earth, or Wood personality.
I’m talking about Five-Element personality typing, a system whereby you can type your horse’s personality and go a long way toward predicting his behavior under different circumstances. Once you figure out your horse’s personality type, you can understand not only how he will act under stress, but also what careers are a good fit, what kinds of horse feed are best for him, and how he likes to learn … plus a lot more!
Want to discover your horse’s Five-Element personality type for free? You can … online … and for free. Here are three steps to knowing your horse’s type.
