Question
hello sir. i believe that swimming is double beneficial than trotting exercise for racehorses. am i correct?

Answer
hi swiming a horse can help a sore horse syay fit wihout all og the trotting and galloping. it keeps the weight of the jock off the horse. you also do need to gallop or pony the horse along with swimming. you cannot train only by swimming.  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.
