Overall Energy

ALEX: Overall energy of a horse depends on what kind of horse you have, and what you’re using them for. And we trained racehorses. They have to run fast every day. So we, at times, wanted horses that had a really good amount of energy, but could control it so they’re not unmanageable.

Some of the other disciplines, they have to have a real quiet demeanor, like a hunter or different jumpers and such, they’ve got to be really calm and cool and be able to push the button whenever you need them. So, each horse, each discipline, each breed is a little different than the rest. And it’s something again that needs to be monitored daily. You’ve got to know you horse inside and out, to see how he’s reacting every day.
