Question
hello. my aim is to become a thoroughbred racehorse trainer. but, very interested in equine nutrition. would you suggest me to take up basic equine nutrition class or would highly recommend advanced level class before i become a racehorse trainer?

Answer
Rohit,

Having knowledge of equine nutrition would be a definite asset.  You would need to take the basic course first in order to be able to get the advanced course. Given that you are dealing with horses at a high level of performance I would take the advanced course as well.
