To ensure that your horse is in the right condition, you should make a good training schedule. Starting from a low level, gradually you should train them with higher sessions, taking care of their good health. The stages of training can go as follows -.
- Training foals for younger horses.
- Ground training
Foals. Shortly after birth, foals are handed over to their respective protectors. They use the method of imprinting , in which shortly after birth they are exposed to the atmosphere in which they have to spend the rest of their lives. They are exposed to human touch and voice. This type of nursing method ensures that the foals learn the fact that humans are not harmful to them and should be respected.
After they are 1-2 years old, they are introduced to some ground training. This makes their bones stronger. However, it is recommended that they not be ridden until the end of this training.
Below are the different training schedules
Teach your horse to respond to your commands, give him directions, teach him how to respond, etc. Д.
Getting him to flap objects and let himself touch and feel objects.
Using a leash to teach the horse to move forward when accompanied by a person behind him.
Facilitating the horse with reins, bits and bridles.
The final step, back-biting, is the process of riding. In this process, the horse becomes comfortable so that the person can ride it. First, they are given to pull the cart at the early age of 2 or 3. By the time they gain enough human trust and love, they are introduced to human riding.

Criticism at Horse Races
Horses are known to be humanity’s most faithful animal after dogs. Horseracing, which was started for the purpose of gambling spirit, has now become a market for gambling and animal torture. This torture has many definitions regarding horses. For some, cruelty may be the way a rider rides his horse. Considering that for some others it may be the poor environment and lack of quality nutrition in which horses are forced to train.
