By having a better understanding of the way of life and routine the racehorse is used to, will help you better appreciate why some horses react and behave as they do when they come out of training. Horses are very much individuals and you will hear that some people report a rather long list of issues they have experienced with their horse during the course of basic retraining, whilst others will say they have had a very straightforward transition from racehorse to riding horse.

A variety of factors can be influential such as whether the horse was flat or NH trained, how long it was in training and where, but of course basic temperament is the most significant factor. Bear in mind that retraining a racehorse could possibly turn out to be a more expensive than originally anticipated as you may require more help than you thought would be the case.
Obviously some horses come out of training due to injury or other health issues, so as a consequence of this, there may be the need for some further or on-going veterinary treatment. After a proper period of rest and rehab , most horses go on to lead very fulfilling lives, but some may need a quieter steadier life. General advice for those homing an ex-racehorse for the first time would be to source your horse from a recognised charitable Racehorse Rehoming Centre, an RoR Approved Retrainer or from someone who has already begun the re-training process.
