Where Horses Should Not Be
9th Mar 2019   |   General   |   Winniefield Park

Back in 1973, Secretariat set a track record at the Kentucky Derby of 1:59 over the 1.25 mile distance. Since then, not a single horse has broken that record at Churchill Downs. A look at Equibase records of the various tracks in North America show that very few records have been ...

Winter has arrived and if youíre a horse owner, you may feel like everything you do to look after your horse takes twice as long, and the time you have to enjoy your horse has been cut in half - if it happens at all. There is not much we can do about the weather. But we can do a ...

We all know that backing a young horse is not for the weak-hearted. Horses struggle with new experiences at the best of times, and often backing involves throwing a thousand new questions at once at a young horse not yet equipped to deal with them. This does not always end well. ...

Why Horses Lie Down When Ridden
