Question
hello sir, what exercise should i give to make my horse's joints fit?

Answer
HI -- THERE IS NO EXERCISE TO MAKE A HORSES JOINTS FIT.  YOU WOULD HAVE TO XRAY THE AREA YOU ARE NOT SURE OF TO SEE IF ALL OF THE BONES ARE DONE GROWING BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO TRAIN THE HORSE. ALL 2 YRS OLD NEED TO BE XRAY TO SEE HOW THE BONES ARE GROWING  KNEES NEED TO BE RAYED TO MAKE  SURE THEY ARE CLOSED PROPERLY BEFORE YOU TRAIN THEM.  THANKS ED HESS

Have trained thoroughbreds for 30 odd years. Have been a licensed trainer for that long of time. I continue to train my race horses and thoroughly enjoy every day.

Experience


Experience: Licensed trainer for over 30 yrs. Have had lots of winners in all different types of races - from bottom claimers to top quality stakes winners. My best money winner was Aristocratic Cross (multiple stakes winner). My best claiming horse was Navajo Family, winner of 12 races in one year. I still enjoy racing a modest stable of horses each year.
