I agree with the workouts. And am sure will help some Horses but is not applicable to Tropical climates. Like in India.

Hi,

I would suggest putting your horse on a hot walker for an hour and half before your ride, then tack up in gallop gear with training wraps on... I walk for 3 mins, trot for 6 mins, lite canter or breeze for 9 min, and a gallop for 1 min, then bring 'em back down to a light breeze for 9 mins, a trot for 6 mins and then walk for 3 mins. then start all over.

Vicki's rationale is part of the mystery of why most (many expensively bred)racehorses nowadays never ever make it to the races.  Extreme training regimens break them down physically and psychologically.  With these fragile animals, less is often more.
