Following is a PDF file containing the Horsenality Profile Worksheet that
has been developed by Parelli Natural Horsemanship:
I highly recommend that you fill out this profile initially on your horse
and update it every 3 to 6 months, depending on how much time you spend with
your horse! For example: if you are taking weekly lessons, then you
should expect changes in your horse more rapidly, and updating your horse's
profile every 3 months would be appropriate...
To fill out the profile, place a dot in each pie segment that is appropriate
for your horse. Rate this attribute as Mild, Moderate, or Extreme, and
place the dot on the associated band within the attribute's pie segment.
Not all attributes will apply to your horse, so if it doesn't apply to your
horse, don't place a dot in this pie segment...
Once you have completed the profile on your horse, you should see a grouping
of Extreme or Moderate attributes in one or possibly two quadrants, however,
normally one quadrant will have slightly more Extreme and Moderate
attributes. From this, you should be able to identify your horse's
primary Horsenality (RBE, RBI, LBI, or LBE).
Once you have identified your horse's primary Horsenality, take a look at
the Do's and Don'ts (below) for your horse's Horsenality. These will
give you an idea of the best motivational techniques to use when playing
with your horse! Obviously your goal will be to use these techniques
to try to reduce the more negative attributes of your horse within their
Horsenality Do's and Don'ts:
Following are links to pages that identify the things that motivate your
horse and don't motivate your horse based on their individual or primary
Obviously, should you have any questions about your horse's Horsenality or
