Reign Day’s Training Diary is Complete

Elizabeth's last training ride on Reign Day. Read Reign Day's training diary and learn what it is like to retrain a Thoroughbred right off-the-track.

If you are new to our Web site or have been watching our Prospect Horses at the Track sell quickly, you might be wondering what is it like to retrain a horse directly off-the-track. Reign Day’s Training Diary takes you on a six week long training session that starts one week after he finished racing. Ride along as Elizabeth teaches Reign Day to be a sport horse. He had lots of lessons to learn like: cross-tying, lunging, riding on uneven surfaces and through mud, cantering in a small arena as compared to a huge race track, gymnastics over cross-rails and jumping small cross-country fences out on our trails. His graduation was attending a hunter pace after being inside for three days due to the five inches of rain we received that week. I won’t spoil the story for you. Reign Day’s story begins as we pick him up from his breeder’s farm in Lexington, KY.

With Wings is Reign Day's brother.

Let’s just say that it was a lot of fun training Reign Day and we are looking forward to bringing his brother, With Wings, to the farm next.
