SHIPPING INTO THE RACE TRACK FOR PRACTISE



In that time, you'll see how a racehorse logically transitions from the farm to the racetrack. By experiencing every part of the process firsthand, with Janet by your side, you'll learn how to adapt your own circumstances to racing off the farm.




The seminar program covers various topics, including:

* Farm layout

*Shipping to the Race Track

* Horse equipment specifically used at the racetrack

* The three phases of training
* Medication - the good and the bad

* Setbacks

* Many other subjects related to getting your horse to the races.


Janet's seminar always tries to schedule a race or a workout at the local racetrack or training center. A highlight of the weekend is the day spent loading the horses in a van and going to either Tampa Bay Downs, Gulfstream Park, Calder Race Course or an Ocala training center for an actual race or workout!

Participants will have an intense weekend full of racehorse experiences and hands-on lessons in horsemanship. Hopefully, they will leave with a solid idea of how they too can train their own racehorse!
