If he's an honest trainer, he will give you excellent advice as to how hard your horse should be trained, and how often he should be raced.


Answer by  BrendaG (6111)

The trainer is responsible in getting the horse ready for races and the planning of what races he feels the horse is prepared for. The trainer is the person who initiates the discipline and many trainers specialize in certain fields outside of the racing. This can include training very young horses or even working with certain breeds.

Have lots of patience working with a race horse. Race horses are high strung and daily working going in and out of the gate and gallops help the horse learn racing.
