Drawing on two case histories to demonstrate precisely what is involved, this is a guide through the minefields of finding and acquiring a racehorse.
Topics covered include: understanding the thoroughbred; finding your horse; assessing conformation; evaluating your horse's potential; planning an effective training programme; physical preparation and turning away; training in the loose school; working over poles; riding away; and further training.
