Contrary to common stereotypes, many racehorses actually have better manners than their non-racing peers. Racehorses are handled daily, are trained according to a strict schedule, and are exposed to a variety of atmospheres. They are in close contact with people starting at a very young age and are accustomed to having caretakers constantly present. So what exactly does a racehorse learn during their time on the track? 🏇
- Racehorses know how to tie, typically in a stall, and are very used to being groomed. They do have sensitive skin though, so they tend to prefer soft brushes. Racehorses are also used to having their manes braided and legs wrapped while tied.
- Racehorses are accustomed to having their feet handled and have often been taught to allow grooms to pick out all four feet while standing on the left (near) side.
- Racehorses are bathed frequently. Although they may not be used to a hose, they are used to water, buckets, and sponges.
- Racehorses are used to traveling. While it may take some time for them to adjust to smaller trailers, they are used to loading and shipping.
- Racehorses are exposed to a myriad of “scary” objects. They see tractors and golf carts regularly. They are exposed to banners, flags, and loud noises, and are typically not spooky.
- Racehorses are familiar with carrying a rider and usually know how to walk, trot, canter, and gallop undersaddle. While the cues are different than regular riding, they do also know how to change leads and perform other necessary maneuvers. 🏇
Racehorses have a greater education than many people realize, however off-track horses are often misunderstood. Racehorses are incredible athletes. They are cared for around the clock and fed an extremely high calorie diet. When they make the transition from the racetrack, they often feel less secure. Insecurity coupled with a dramatic change in diet can lead to behaviors that many misinterpret. A familiarity with how racing barns operate can make the transition easier for both the horse and the new owner. Off-track horses can transform into willing, athletic, unparalleled partners when given proper understanding and retraining. 🏇

Morning Mantra: "Character isn't revealed by promises made, but by promises kept." We are often so hopeful that someone cares, or is sorry about hurting us, that we are desperate to believe them when they make promises.
But the truth isn't found in their words. Their love isn't found in what they say. Words are cheap. Words can be crafted to speak to our most vulnerable self.
Actions are the real indication of someone's character. If they tell you something but their actions say something else, believe what they do, not what they say.
Love is a verb.
