The skill points factor depends on:

- Skill points assignment.
- Skill trait.
- The skill points match the type of the show entered.
- The player has the The wand of horse improvement magic item.
- The arena horse bonus.

For every horse entering a show, the skill points are calculated based on the above factors.

- The game determines which skills are required for the entered show type and what is the importance of each of those skills, using the skills importance chart.
- The game calculates the total amount of skill points the horse has:
*level * 6*. - The game calculates the trait bonus (if the horse has a skill trait).

- For regular players the bonus is 10%.
- For players that have the wand of horse improvement magic item the bonus is 20%.

- For each of the skills required for entered show, the game calculates how well the skills were assigned, in concordance with the actual required skill importance.

**Note:** *Once the skill points factor is calculated, the game will multiply it with the arena bonus. A 100% trained horse will have twice as many points as a 0% trained horse.*

**Example:**

Horse **#808469 **has the following stats:

- Level 256
- Trait: Agility
- Skills assigned:

- Agility: 750
- Speed: 600
- Intelligence: 150

- Total skill points: 256*6 = 1536

Let's assume that this horse enters a Jumper show and let's calculate the skill points factor.

- According to the chart the skills required for Jumper shows are:
**Agility 50%, Speed 40%, Intelligence 10%** - The total amount of skill points is 1536.
- The trait is
**Agility**. We will assume that the player does**not**have the wand, so the bonus is 10%. - As specified, there are 3 required skills for the Jumper type.

**Agility**

Agility points = 750 + 1536/10 (10% of the total) = 750 + 153 = 903.

903 is 58% of the total skill points.**Note:**The game will use only 50% of the total which is 768 and this means that the horse has more than 100 skill points assigned to Agility that won't help.**Speed**

Speed points = 600. The trait is agility, so there are no points added here.

600 = 39% of 1536.**Note:**The horse could use some skill points moved from Agility to Speed. The optimal number for Speed would be 615.**Intelligence**

Intelligence points = 150 = 9.7% of the total skill points. The optimal number for intelligence would be 154.

**Notes:**

*The skill points factor in this case is 50% of 1536 + 39% of 1536 + 9.7% of 1536 = 1516. The maximum skill points factor is 1536.**The above maximum factor is 1536 with 0% arena training. 100% arena training would double that number (3072)*
