At horseOlogy, we take a horse-first approach to our yearling training. We want to encourage horses who have the interest and aptitude for racing to feel the excitement of doing it their way. We learn what each young horse wants and what motivates them before creating a training process that works individually. Here are the basics if you want to know what that looks like.
The goal with every yearling we bring into the horseOlogy program is to encourage them to succeed as racehorses. Training is centered entirely on giving the horse the proper building blocks to be successful in their career. We start slowly and work our way up to tack and riders; they are shown what it takes to succeed through our care and handling.
Every horse is different, and we know that. We use their personalities and interests to inform how we work with them as they progress in their training. We learn what motivates each yearling and lean into their natural instincts, and what makes them happiest on and off the track.
Physical and Mental Well-being and Care
We also know that it’s crucial for the yearlings to experience being young horses. Like school kids, our yearlings must engage in socialization and recreation with their peers. We always give them ample time in the pasture to play and communicate.
