Made In Her Image in Training at Bits & Bytes Farm

OTTB Made In Her Image in Training at Bits & Bytes Farm

Made in Her Image came to Bits & Bytes Farm from the race track in mid-December 2018 for a few months of training. Her owner will be bringing ‘Mae’ home to Nantucket, MA in the spring. We have the pleasure of starting this three-year-old filly and documenting it. We hope that the videos will help others who are starting young Thoroughbreds off-the-track.

Each of the videos has information about what we are working on.  If time allows, we will add more information to this post. If you would like to see a diary of us retraining an ex-race horse, click on over to Reign Day’s Training Diary. You will find photos and information about how we start a Thoroughbred that has just come off-the-track.

We have a YouTube channel with videos of the Thoroughbreds we have for sale, ones we have sold and training and outings videos of other Thoroughbreds. There are lots of fun videos to watch.

Here is a gallery of Made In Her Image videos from our YouTube channel. If you check back from time-to-time you will see new videos as we add them to our YouTube channel

Made In Her Image - January 23, 2019 Canter Work

Made In her Image is working on her canter. We still need to get better and more consistent transitions to the canter. If she picks up the wrong lead we let her canter a few strides before bringing her down to a trot and trying again. She already responds to my sitting up to transistion downward and she will even come down to a walk with almost no pressure on her mouth. 'Mae' is also learning to turn from my legs and body as well. She is not dependent on the reins to guide her. At this point, all we want is for her to do is move forward freely and make quiet transitions. She is offering to take contact without being asked which is a plus. 'Mae' is light in my hands and always easy to control.Show More
