Re-Training Programme – Hacking

As part of the re-training programme, the team makes sure that each ex-racehorse experiences a varied regime. Gidam Gidam just LOVES to hack.

Hacking our ex-racehorses out is good for their mental well-being. The hacks (either solo or in pairs) helps to keep our horses mentally fresh. By exposing the horses to different stimulation when we hack out, they very quickly get used to more things around them, leading to more confident horses.
