Reign Day Training Diary


Reign Day at the track in 2009

Many people are afraid to get a horse right off-the-track. They think that it takes special skills to retrain and ex-race horse to be a sport horse. What it really takes is patience and a plan. You need to slowly teach the horse about the new skills he will need to acquire to transition to his new life after the finish line. You need to be clear and consistent about what you are asking the horse to do and NEVER scare the horse. You need the horse to see you as the leader and he needs to learn to trust that you will not allow him to be hurt.
