Character of the Metal Horse
The metal horse is a no-nonsense figure.
No extreme happiness, does a good job and expects to be treated fairly No more and no less. When he goes to a competition, he prefers that it is not accompanied by all kinds of sentimental things and grooming rituals. It prefers to be saddled, ridden, saddled off and put back in the stable without any nonsense. If he has to move forward, he will go as a soldier until further instruction.
This horse does not like chaos and tension. When trained and treated fairly, he likes to work and makes rapid progress. In balance, these animals have a correct judgmental ability. With his square, slim and strong build, he radiates a calm maturity. If this horse is treated unfairly, it will retreat into its metal shell, become stiff, depressed, and no longer respond.
Because the metal horse has a tendency to shut off from its environment, it is necessary to keep it in contact with its environment.
Touch exercises and daily grooming can provide a solution here. Irregular breathing and constipation can result upon occlusion. Due to the lung weakness associated with this horse, there is an increased risk of skin problems such as dryness and itching. His emotional stiffness can be reflected in a stiff neck and spine. Metal horses are sensitive to drought and in contrast to, for example, the earth horse, this horse benefits from a damp stable and wet hay.
Suitable use: western, endurance, trekking
Common in the following breeds: Quarters, Icelanders
Explanation of the description of the character type
In this description the character of an exemplary metal horse is outlined. There are five main character types, of which this is one. The goal is that recognizable characteristics become visible. Don’t assume that your horse is by definition one particular type and that everything else is no longer possible. Every horse has characteristics of all types. There are also continuous changes that affect the character of the horse. Every horse has a basic character type that is constantly under the influence of external things. For example, training can positively affect the type and living conditions of a bad one. These influences can even temporarily influence the basic character in such a way that it is no longer recognizable. That is why it is important that the animal is given the space and freedom to be itself, so that the basic character eventually emerges again. A horse is better off if it is allowed to be itself, it will certainly benefit its health.
Training of the Metal Horse
While training horses, it is important to know the type of horse you are training. Training includes training at all levels. Whether it is a young horse that has to learn the basics or a sport horse that is trained in a high discipline. This is not about the content, but about the form of the training. That is why a number of basic characteristics for the training form of the metal horse are indicated here.
If the trainer has realistic expectations for this horse, it will be eager to learn and work. Too much and too difficult causes emotional closure and therefore a stop in emotional development. The approach of this horse must be attuned to its qualities. First and foremost, they are horses that are suitable to work with. Routines should be trained without too many side issues and then always used in the same way.
Make use of the natural talent of these horses and try not to turn them into fashion dolls. In the work these horses are more result-oriented than technique-oriented. With too much pressure, metal horses will do their job mechanically without any emotional involvement. Give this horse the space to fill in part of it yourself. Claiming that own part motivates the horse to stay in touch with you. Shutdown and disinterest is the greatest risk with metal horses of overcharging or applying too much pressure during training. Keep in touch with them without imposing on yourself.
Which relationship suits you?
The element theory (Water, Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal) applies to all living beings. The 5 main character types therefore apply not only to horses, but also to people. If we try to look at ourselves objectively, we will be able to recognize one or more types in ourselves. Therefore realize that it is important to know and accept your own type (that you yourself). As a result, you will be better able to choose a horse that suits you. You also have to look at the goal that you have in mind for the horse. Not every character type is suitable for the possible purpose that people have in mind for the horse.
This prevents disappointment and a lot of misery for both parties. For example, if you are an Earth type yourself, you can imagine that you will not be happy on a woodhorse. If you just want to ride a nice ride and this type only wants to go really fast because he wants to win, you will both return to the stable disappointed.
