The thoroughbred horse that takes centre stage in galloping is a cultural asset cultivated for centuries, the breeding of which has unthinkable radiant effects on almost the entire breeding of horses.
Usually, thoroughbreds live in the racing stable in an environment that corresponds to a five-star hotel. They are well fed, soft bedded and receive first-class care, attention and veterinary care. The daily routine follows a strict routine that the racehorse gets used to and makes it quiet and balanced.
Important for all horses in the racing stable is a good atmosphere, not only air and light, but also the social atmosphere among the employees. Thoroughbreds are sensitive animals and respond immediately to irregularities and poor mood.
Gallop racing is a high performance sport – and, as with any athlete, it is also important for the thoroughbred horses to keep body and mind fit in the best possible way. Excellent horsemanship and daily care of animals are essential to maintain the horses‘ health.
