Frequently Asked Questions

When should a horse begin training for racing?

Horses that are two years old can begin training, although they may start with basic training. Their bodies are still young, and can adapt to the learning process. However, timing will vary depending upon the horse’s individual temperament and developmental stage.

What is a horse’s first step of training?

The initial phase of training a racehorse involves a critical stage known as “breaking,” where the horse becomes accustomed to carrying a saddle, bridle, and the weight of a rider. During early sessions, the horse must be taught to accept human contact and wear the equipment throughout his racing career.

What diet is the most suitable for a horse that races?

A racehorse’s diet must be high in quality and precisely balanced to meet the energetic demands of training and racing. It is a combination of hay of the highest quality, grains, such as barley or oats, and commercially-prepared feed for racehorses. Additionally, the diet should be supplemented with essential vitamins and minerals to support overall health and peak performance.

How often must racehorses receive training?

Racehorses’ training frequency is determined by the horse, his level of fitness and racing schedule. A typical daily routine would consist of exercises such as walking and trotting. More intense workouts such as galloping, or breezing, are performed several times per week to increase stamina and improve speed. Rest days are also important for the horse’s recovery and to prevent overtraining.

How do you maintain a racehorse’s mental well-being?

The mental health of a racing horse is just as important as its physical condition. Varied routines, regular turnout to pasture, mental stimulation, and gentle, patient handling all contribute to a racehorse’s psychological well-being. By ensuring the horse is socialized with other horses in a stable, calm environment, you can prevent stress and behavioral problems.

What health precautions must be taken when training racehorses?

To prevent injury or illness, racehorses need to be given the attention they deserve. Regular veterinary examinations, vaccinations dental care and hoof management is essential. Equally important is monitoring the horse for signs of fatigue, strain, or discomfort. A well-planned training program that allows for a gradual increase in intensity will help reduce the risk of musculoskeletal injury.


  • Racehorse mortality rates during racing have been observed to be between 1.5 to 2 deaths per thousand starts, depending on the racing jurisdiction.
  • Around 80% of thoroughbred racehorses begin their racing careers by the age of two, according to industry estimates.
  • The majority of racehorses in training are subject to an exercise regimen that includes being ridden six days a week.
  • Statistically, less than 1% of thoroughbred foals born each year will go on to win a stakes race.
  • Studies suggest that proper early training can reduce the risk of musculoskeletal injuries in racehorses by up to 50%.
  • Approximately 70% of a racehorse’s diet consists of forage, with the remainder made up of grains and supplements to meet their high-calorie needs.
