Strive to stretch An ex-racehorse will benefit from lots of long and low work. It helps build the correct muscles, teaches him to lower his head and is great for his mind too. If he’s not too fresh, start every session this way.
Be creative A schooling session that is full of transitions, shapes and changes of pace will keep your ex-racer’s sharp mind occupied. Don’t do any one movement for too long.
Be patient Re-training an ex-racehorse is massively rewarding, but it takes time. Rush it and your horse will be stressed in his mind and tired through his body. Take it slowly and correctly and you could very well have a superstar on your hands.
