Do you ever think about the kind of person “you” are when you go to buy a horse? Well if you are looking to buy your perfect partner then this is something you should really consider. Normally when we go to buy a horse we have in our mind what our horse might look like but we rarely think about matching ourselves up with our potential partners. If you don’t have a lot of savvy in horsemanship this can be a very beneficial way to buy a horse.
If you are an extroverted thinker you tend to have higher energy, are a fast learner, are confident and can be quite tolerant. On the other hand you can also be dominant, pushy and sometimes downright mischievous. Does this sound like a horse you might have seen when you went to buy a horse? Now everyone tends to dwell on the negative aspects and I encourage you not to do that but just realize you carry these traits along with the positive ones. So if you are looking to buy a horse that will match you, go and ask your family and friends to describe what kind of person you are. Ask them to be honest with the bad, the good and the ugly. When you go to buy a horse sometimes it’s easier to see it in the horse than in ourselves so be honest. Don’t look at it as good or bad just see it for what it is so you can buy a horse that will make your perfect partner.
So if you are this type of person you will be looking to buy a horse with the same sort of traits along with some other specific traits. You will find this horse to have more “go”, be willful, playful, smart and exuberant. On the other hand they have a tenancy to bite, strike, be naughty and mouthy. Again when you go to buy a horse like this please don’t just look at the negative traits just recognize them and know that there are just as many positive ones. Don’t forget this horse is like you! He wants to go play with you and learn new things at a fast pace. If you truly are an extroverted learner then buy a horse like this so he can keep up with you and really enjoy your play time together. If you buy a horse and use the strategies that will come naturally to you, like coming up with creative tasks and new lessons, this horse will give you everything. Wouldn’t it be great to buy a horse that totally understands you? In the end the horse is hopeful for the same. So go learn a little more about yourself and buy a horse that will be your perfect match!
