This fully comprehensive book guides the reader through the process of acquiring and subsequently re-training a racehorse. It provides an in-depth look at what life was like for the horse at the racing yard and how through correct training and education you can train your horse to become a happy adjusted athlete ready for everyday equestrian activities.
Fred Cook and Rowena Simmonds have built up an extensive client base from around the UK and a reputation for their knowledge and skills in handling and training difficult, temperamental and very sensitive horses. It was through their love of the thoroughbred and racing they became involved with the charity Retraining of Racehorses (RoR) soon after it was established in 2000. Fred and Rowena are now the Training Consultants to the Charity.
