My feelings at this time are that horses are capable of extreme intelligence. Intelligence useful to us humans varies according to breed and, of course, the individual horse but also environment and genetics. It has been my experience that succeeding generations of horses born into a nurturing and stimulating environment produce a higher “intelligence” and integration than is possible in an individual lifetime. The foals will be more intelligent and socially integrated and succeeding foals more so. This really supports the theory that enlightened “intelligent” breeding produces foals of superior quality – sometimes FAR superior.
