Ok, what you are talking about is "chi." In martial arts terminology, that is basically "life energy." While marital artists may disagree, it is NOT the same thing a scientist would refer to as "energy." At least it is not measurable with scientific instruments. Having studied martial arts for several years, I say with the upmost respect - "chi" is closer to magic than to the scientific definition of energy.
Horses move each other without touching. They do this by communicating in a language we cannot easily understand. If you are a "nervous" person, and I am an intimidating person - when I walk towards you, you would likely move out of the way. That is not energy, that is attitude and non-verbal communication.
With training, you can train a horse to move off body language. With practice, you can move many untrained horses with body language/attitude.
If you devote your life to mastering the art, and have the innate talent, you could also probably learn to do what the samurai (sensei, sifu, etc.) does. Honestly, I believe you will find moving horses through body language an easier thing to learn. :)
