Answer
HI --- WELL TO BECOME A TRAINER YOU SHOULD FIRST WORK AROUND HORSES FOR MANY YEARS TO GET TO KNOW THE ASPECTS OF THE GAME. THEN ANY BOOKS OR OTHER INFO YOU CAN READ OR DO IS ALSO THE BEST FOR YOU. WORKING IN A BARN AS A GROOM  HOT WALKER ASST TRAINER ETC WILL GIVE YOU A BACKGROUND IN THE GAME. WORKING IN THE BARN, DOING UP HORSES BEING THERE FOR THE BLACK SMITH,  VET  TOOTH FERRIE ETC  ALL HELPS YOU BECOME A TRAINER. 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.
