Question
hello sir, how to correct aggression in racehorses? my requirement is when i approach her, they should come near me and shouldnt bite or tear of my shirt.

Answer
HI YES  YOU ARE RIGHT .  I ALWAYS APPROACH THE HORSE WITH A TREAT IN MY FLATTEND OUT HAND. THEY SEE THE TREAT COME OVER TO YOU AND YOU EXTEND THE HAND SO THE HORSE CAN SMELL IT  AND LET THEM HAVE IT. ALWAYS SAY GOOD BOY OF GIRL. REPEAT WHEN YOU COME TO THE HORSE SOMETIMES 3-5 TIMES A DAY . THEY WILL REMEMBER  THE TREAT AND YOUR ASSOCIATION TO KINDNESS.  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: 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.
