"Don't waste your money"
Although Thoroughbreds are hot-blooded, most are pretty calm and easy going when asked to do a job off the track, provided they get enough exercise. Where the problems arise is when people don't understand how racers have been trained and handled. Often OTTBs are merely responding to what they think the rider wants from the cues he is giving. With some smart handling and understanding, most people can enjoy Thoroughbreds as steady, safe and responsive companions in just about any industry discipline.
Reduce your horse's stress - and yours - with smart ideas you can apply at home to get ready for an initial show, community ride, trip to an instructor's facility or hopeful fun time with friends. It can be nerve-wracking for anyone (professionals included) to venture off the property with a horse for the first time. This becomes more challenging for novices who don't have the benefit of drawing from decades of experience. Know you're not alone - everyone has some doubts, anxiety and excitement associated with that first public appearance.
