I continue to be fascinated by the great differences between the five elements of horse types and temperaments. Each type and temperament has needs and desires completely different, and I learn more about each, the more I know.Here I offer a case study of a Shao Yang (fire / wood) jumper mare named Samantha want how you said the man, Stephanie Yeh. Although the temperament Shao Yang is usually fire, is discussed in a Shao Yang, firepower in the direction of competition and a “no-nonsense ” attitude of the consideration of wood. I find it fascinating that while my mare fire, Cherry, loving care and attention, Samantha does not like this kind of attention and is ” around the job.” Enjoy Samantha: I ‘m All About Jobi recently took my mare mustang, Samantha, a show hunter / jumper, and found to show that Yang Shao his personality was like a beacon. Shao Yang personality is a combination fire / wood, and Samantha, the combination results in an attitude of, was nervous “I ‘m about to do the job. ” Samantha, as we have the first show, is typical for his personality. They invaded every jump of at least two feet in our warm-up, and was a little fast. Wellwhen the show started its competition kicks and it was ready to go.The interesting thing happens when we entered the arena to go directly to our hunters first course. Samantha jumped into a fast gallop for the circle of courtesy, which is not surprising as it moves rapidly into the rule. My coach yelled, “Slow down! ” In the margin, a very small effect. But when Samantha saw the first jump, the pace slowed and was well aware. In fact, I could hear how it in my head, counting the steps until the jump: It has continued to grow at all in a jump during “Four, three, two, one, jump ” . The result is that by the end of the day Samantha, a small pony mare 14.1 hands had struck a number of great hunters of fantasy. She has received two second places on the fences in a class of eight . Their slow and deliberate competition with their usual fast pace in the ring hunter. She wanted more than they wanted to win driving too fast. The funny thing is that I miscounted the number of steps, some jumps, while Samantha counted correctly. Accordingly, Iwas “end ” enter two-point position on the jump, much to his displeasure. They rushed her tail when I was too late, as if recalling my error.The final expression Samantha ‘s Shao Yang personality was his reaction to people outside the show ring. They had turned a few heads with their hunting tours, and many people came by to congratulate us and Samantha animal. Samantha would have none of it. Any attempt to point to the head or Pat affection was met with evasion. It ‘s all in loving kindness or praise concerned, including me (a little pat on the neck is acceptable, but excessive love is not tolerated). To compete equally with their own standards seems that the attention or wants Samantha Most people think needs.While a horse with a dominant personality would fire a lot of care and love in a horse would be the Yang Shao opposite of true. Samantha is all about his work and attention that she wants me to work. If I don ‘t work, you are at least three days a week, she stands at the door of pasture and shouts to me. When I gograzing animals in them or just something to his taste, it turns tail and walks away. Me, she wants to be a working partner or not. The appearance of the wood of a temperament Shao Yang seems to direct the fire some of his time to work, performance and competition.
