There are very good programs today that guide the newfound owners of thoroughbred race horses through the delicate task of introducing them to their second career. Problems often arise with  conventional equestrian education, which emphasizes the "clever manipulation of reward and punishment”.  This approach does not take into consideration the imprint left in the horse's mind from their experience on the race track. The wounds are real and influence the way the thoroughbred horse processes mentally. 

This is true for all breeds of horses. The reeducation process is always hampered by the presence of bad memories that will be reawakened by any signal of near resonance. As long as training philosophies do not take a resolutely new direction, horses will protect themselves from a new type of submission the same way they survived previous submissive techniques.

Thoroughbreds do not submit well, but they excel in partnership. So do most horses. Given a chance, horses perform willingly. They even take pertinent initiatives. The chance they need is a great leader. Jim Collins (Good to Great) distinguishes good leaders who select skilled partners with whom they share their views, and great leaders who also select talented partners but adjust their views to the greater benefit of their partner's talent.     

"Leaders don't force people to follow; they invite them on a journey.” (Charles S. Lauer) Every training technique claims to invite the horse into a journey, yet starts with the submission to the rider's aids. The physical coordination that allows the horse to perform soundly and at its full potential demands more sophistication than does the submission to the rider's aids. There are 183 synovial articulations in the horse's vertebral column. The subtle and simultaneous coordination of these many articulations is controlled by the horse's central nervous system, the brain. Such coordination can be guided by another brain, the rider's brain. Leading the horse toward soundness and success can be achieved while engaging and respecting the horse's intelligence.

 One may say, yes but, when you start a young horse... This program is about starting a young horse and gives him a chance to perform soundly and at his full potential. The horse education from A to Z is segmented into DVDs. The first one is "The Making of Chazot”, DVD(A). The last one will be "The Making of Chazot, DVD (Z).

There are many examples of well designed studies of pathological changes in race horse's bodies, and the incidence of damage to bone and joints is high, sadly this is often seen in ex race horses under the age of 5.. Many have multifactorial lamenesses that are difficult to diagnose. Once the horse is in rehabilitation, systematic, incremental work can be slowly included. With the long term training philosophy given byJean Luc here, an individualized approach to training the the ex race horse is defined. Elizabeth Gormley
