He or she would have an ample piece of land with stables to house the horses, a training track and supplies shed for feed and equipment. A trainer in most situations would have assistance in the form of stable staff that is headed by a stable foreman. This is not an easy feat as trainers and staff, are fully committed on a seven-day basis.

In the warmer months, the coat would only be required in cold mornings, and monitored during days by staff. It is beneficial that staff have a caring attitude so care is paramount. The horse’s coat changes throughout the year as the months change.

 A good sign for a horse is to have a gloss in the coat displaying good health. The training of the horse begins with the use of good equipment and making sure the horse is in good order. The horse shoes should be checked and a farrier contacted for any work adding new shoes. The dental work for the most part can be handled in house. Usually the teeth need to be filed down so the horse can eat properly. Another reason is so it is safe not to bite the tongue during active work. For this, a head clamp is used with no discomfort to the horse.
