The word 'praus' comes from ancient military training.
The Greek army would find the wildest horses in the mountains and bring them in. After months of training, they sorted the horses into categories: some were discarded, others were put into ordinary duty.
The fewest of all graduated and were put into service.
When a horse passed the conditioning required for service, its state was described as 'praus'.
The horse had ‘power under authority,’ ‘strength under control.’
The horse was always determined, strong and passionate, however, it learned to bring its nature under discipline.
