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.
