Considerations before breeding: identify weaknesses + strengths, environment reared, special care + training. Able to select for things, its hard to select for things if you don"t know what they are! They will be best suited to work in an environment that they are reared in. Have the genes and the form to function soundly, put them in the hands of the best trainers so they have the best opportunity to run as best as they can. Can be a bonus to allow us to identify the best horses. If a super horse is in poor hands, we do not know the capabilities of the horse may have in the breeding shack. Stallion or mare must prove themselves to be worthy of breeding ( right genetics, capabilities etc) No room for pets in the breeding industry: pets, capabilities breeding horses to function and form, lets ensure they have the correct capabilities.
