I would like to share some information on the four types of horses that I have either owned or had the pleasure of riding. It’s, but clear, therefore, social media algorithms must also be differing from one site to another. There is no hype when a single state reports hundreds of deaths in a matter of a week’s time. There is NO hype when the National Guard has to build makeshift hospitals because the hospitals cannot handle the overflow of those infected with viruses. All dogs need training, but it is especially important to train any dog with its particular breed in mind. Every dog breed has strengths and weaknesses when it comes to training. This article focuses on the art of training an Alaskan Malamute or other Northern breeds. Career Thoroughbreds have lived a relatively narrow existence on the racetrack. Their days are very repetitive and they do not have opportunity to spend much time just “being a horse”. When you first start working with an OTTB, it is important to give them several months of let-down time so they can reacquire some of their natural activities, such as grazing with pasture mates. Many Thoroughbreds have various drugs or hormones in their system, and it is important for their body to flush these out before serious training can begin. This breed of horse was originally bred in England due to the English horsemen’s desire to have a fast race horse. There are three that founded this bloodline which are: Byerley Turk, Darley Arabian and Godolphin Arabian, named after their respective owners, Thomas Darley, Lord Godolphin and Captain Robert Byerley. All of these stallions were imported to England from the Mediterranean Middle East between 1670 and 1710. The result was an animal that could carry weight with sustained speeds over extended distances. Approximately ninety percent of modern thoroughbreds have descended from Eclipse whose grandsire was Darley Arabian, who was never beaten in eighteen races. This is not so with sports like hockey, basketball, baseball, even golf or tennis. I used to play hockey as a kid but no matter how much I played, there is a 99.999% chance I would never make it into the NHL. I think the same can be said for thousands, maybe even millions of athletes in major sports. But not gaming. You have a very good chance of being able to compete in the field of gaming simply by training and staying dedicated to it. As with any green horse, building a solid foundation from the basics is critical. We do most of the initial work from the longe. This allows the trainer to develop herd dominance over the horse and allows the horse to begin learning his new balance without the weight of a rider. Thoroughbreds are bred to run, and generally this is their first inclination when faced with conflict or stress. For this reason, it is best to begin your longe work in an enclosed area such as a round pen. An enclosure will help prevent injury for the trainer or the horse.
