Do You Know Your Horse’s Horsenality?

With Horsenality, you can quickly identify your horse’s innate characteristics and introduce specific strategies for bringing out the best in your horse.

Why is this important? Well, knowing whether your horse is confident or fearful, extroverted or introverted, or motivated by food vs. play can make all the difference in the world. An exercise that makes one horse literally jump for joy could be absolutely terrifying for another horse. Knowing what makes your horse tick can be the difference between a lifelong partnership and a constant struggle.

To become the perfect partners for our horses, we need to understand them. Horsenality is the ultimate catalyst for understanding.

The Four Main Horsenality Characteristics

This horse is a playful character that needs interesting things to do. He is obsessed with learning and needs variety and new things to keep it fun.

Welcome to the land of “Why should I? What’s in it for me?” This horse reads people like a book. He knows what you want and he’s not going to give it to you, unless you treat him right. Even though he appears stubborn or lazy, he’s not at all lazy in the mind! He may move slowly, but he’s always thinking quickly

This shy, timid, shrinking violet avoids pressure by retreating into himself. Success involves going very slowly at first and waiting for him to come out of his shell, to trust more. Pretty soon he’ll be offering you more.This shy, timid, shrinking violet avoids pressure by retreating into himself.

This horse constantly needs reassurance. He gets confused easily and then gets afraid, so he needs you to make things simple, which will help him relax.

What People Are Saying

“I thoroughly agree with the report. It was spot on with Gem’s Horsenality and hope through this will create a better relationship between us. The report is beautifully presented in several separate segments to lick and chew on. First class all the way!”
– Patricia, United States

“Excellent Product! I wish I had invested in it sooner – not only did I have my Humanality COMPLETELY wrong, there were also so many tiny tiny aspects of myself and my horse I was unaware of. It has given me a new focus and inspiration to really help myself help my horse and for our partnership to be amazing! I recommend everyone to invest in this PRICELESS information that not only lays your horse out on a plate but also yourself and gives you the entire tool box of how to work with and through any situation! LOVE LOVE LOVE Pat and Linda for another amazing level of insight and information to see the horse world into the future it deserves 🙂 thanks!”
– Sharlane, New Zealand

“Ok I can’t praise this enough. I was sooooo excited to get in and when I got it it was worth every penny that I paid for it. It is like having Pat and Linda right there with you talking about your horse. It really “nailed” how my horse thinks and gave me some great help on my horsemanship. This is totally worth getting.”
