Light in buildings for animal welfare is very important. A horse, by definition, is not used to live between 4 walls. Any stress attributed to the animal before a race is totally negative.
I want my horses to feel good before they get to the races or pre-workouts. The comfort aspect for the horses in the buildings and the boxes, thanks to adapted lighting, is a parameter to which the trainers can only be very sensitive.
