    I didn't mean to imply that the whole industry was closed off to you as a secret! No one hear is trying to hide any information from you, the difference I find is that in TB racing the trainer is the sole judge of the horses activity, with very little involvement from the owner. Essentially no one is taught how to ride their horse for a race, so there is not much explanation of the entire process to the owners. I am sure there are some people involved in the racing industry who would gladly give you the low down on how to train a race horse, but here the difference is we all ride our horses, regardless if they are trained by someone else or not. The trainers job is to teach us how to do what they are doing. In racing many owners don't really interfere with the horses training schedule and only show up to watch it race. I think that is why many people feel it is harder to get directly involved in the racing industry, and those who are have the edge of knowing what really happens behind the scenes. I know I have had horses all my life, and the racing industry is still a bit of a mystery. Sorry I gave you the wrong idea.

    Interval training would build the heart but you need a heart rate monitor for that and the knowledge of how to use it and not hurt the horse.]
    You will not get useful information on this board for building a race horse.
    i just wanted to say that you are completely wrong
