Essentials, Leg Stretches Before Track Work

Stephan doing Leg Stretches

Welcome back!

I hope the “normal folks” among the readers had some peaceful couple of days. For us race-trackers it was business as usual. Except for maybe trying to squeeze in a church visit….  

The racing season is under full swing now and there is no time mosey about.
Before we hit the track for morning workout, each horse gets their legs stretched: in the above picture it looks like Stéphane is stretching himself as well. That can’t hurt! There are a lot of other neck and limb stretches to help activate the horse’s core, which we have found to really make a difference. It’s things like this that make our job so interesting.
Horses are quick learners and they actually enjoy doing their exercises once they figured out what it’s all about.

    There are times that we encounter fear and disappointments in life yet we still manage to stand up straight and face it rather that being silent. That was a very good example of being a brave person. Well, I would like to thank you for sharing a very good article it is very much appreciated, good job! You can visit my site too if you want.
