The "Son of the Horse-Lords" isn't so much to do with horse training. Rather, the "horse" was the throwback of Dalraidian pagan horse was the standard, much like the eagle sits upon the USA flagpole.
There were other such symbols, pigs, various birds etc....
I think we came out pretty well. Eachernthigearna (forgive my spelling) (horse lords) was distinctly Dalraidian (circa 450-850 AD)and separate from rival Picts until their unification under Kenneth MacAlpine (800's AD). The proximity of their lands to the Western Isle's no doubt lead to absorption/alliance benefits from the MacDonalds.

Does that help?
