Is it possible to change a genetic potentiality?
No, because it remains with us throughout our lives as the unchanging genetic code, which makes us all unique as individuals.
Environmental information is something that’s reflected through a genetic potentiality. It throws an infinitely different patterned ability or shadow, which is expressed accordingly to our genetic template. As an analogy; it’s like shining a light through a stencil that becomes reflected into our personal reaction to any given situation.
The sorry fact remains that you’ll never know for sure if you have potentially gained it. This is because becoming the full potentiality of what any horse offers you personally (or if others can achieve it), is that you could also learn the ability. The desire to find out if we have or could, often leads us to have a horse professionally trained. A potentiality considers that an emotional determination or physical ability is only something that it’s possible to obtain environmentally, as opposed to a genetic situation at a certain moment in time - as becoming a potentiality of the horsemanship or equitation of anyone who rides the horse in the future.
Horse trainers, who consider they can demonstrate such ability, only allow horses to obtain what is potentially already in existence, by their efforts to release it passively. Or they increasingly destroy the potentiality, in their efforts to obtain it by force. Obtaining a trainer that will help you come to terms with your emotionality and physical dexterity, and which will make you and your horse a successful team, must for the vast majority of equestrians become afterwards, a self supporting ‘unity’.
It’s often reliant on your ability to choose a good trainer, to learn from them and to accept their advice. As such the ability is for you personally both a genetic and environmentally activated ability, and a measure of your own temperament to do so.
