Week Two – Training an Off-the-Track Thoroughbred

Young Joe has been away from racing just two weeks. His new mom, Mary Catherine, has been riding him and teaching him the basics of being a sport horse as opposed to being a race horse. Since leaving the race track Joe has learned to cross tie, stand while being mounted, stand quietly while being ridden, walk, trot and canter without getting quick.
