Empire Tips

Empire is a sensitive guy. He is not overly fond of grooming most days, but loves to be vacuumed! If he is stomping his rear leg and moving around a lot in the crossties, then you need to adjust what you’re doing with him. He has an all-business attitude and responds well to a neutral tone of voice.

He is a blue level or staff hold in the mounting area, because it’s a challenging place for him to be.

In the arena, he is very good for students. He can get a little grumpy going into the trot, so be sure to keep his head out of your space by gently moving his head to the right with your lead line. He does have a big trot, so be prepared for more forward movement.
