There is no Convincing a Shao Yang Type Horse

AUSTIN, Texas March 14, 2008 – Most riders have experienced a day when their horse just doesn’t want to work, and with unending frustration, nothing is accomplished.

If that horse is a Shao Yang (a Fire/Wood combination) it’s best to leave the training for another day. The Shao Yang is described as one of the most headstrong and competitive of the eleven Five-Element personality types depicted by Dr. Madalyn Ward D.V.M., in her new book, “Horse Harmony, Understanding Horse Types and Temperaments.” It is almost impossible to force a Shao Yang to do anything it doesn’t want to do, and these types can be very difficult to train, but are the most talented. What can a rider do when a daily routine just leads to fireworks?

Dr. Ward has the answers to this and many other training questions in her book. She explains the personality as well as the best training, job, diet and management method for each type. “Horse Harmony, Understanding Horse Types and Temperaments” allows the reader to discover why their horse behaves the way it does and how to create a better bond, without the day-to-day headache.

As for the Shao Yang, their high energy has to be directed toward something interesting to them. One example would be to change up the work routine because a Shao Yang is easily bored.

Dr. Ward has dedicated much of her attention toward the healing work of the relationship between horse and owner to find the proper match. She feels as though many daily stressors between horse and owner would be eliminated if everyone did some research. Dr. Ward encourages equestrians to look into personality types before making a purchase.

Dr. Ward is the owner of Bear Creek Veterinary Clinic in Austin, Texas. She is the author of several books and the publisher of the monthly newsletter, “Holistic Horsekeeping.” For more information on her book, “Horse Harmony, Understanding Horse Types and Temperaments,” visit http://www.horseharmony.com.
