Re-Educating Racehorses: A Life After Racing is a new book that gives anyone interested in or who owns an ex-racehorse a comprehensive guide to care, management, training and more, to help them get the most from their horse, and the horse to get the most from their training and care.
Written by Fred Cook and Rowena Simmonds – who run a yard in Cambridgeshire that is dedicated to the retraining, re-schooling and re-educating of ex-racehorses – the book is based on years of experience.
The book is divided into 13 informative chapters starting from pre-purchase all the way through to work under saddle and jump training.
The informative, practical guide includes useful tips when it comes to difficult subjects such as:
- how to manage a horse out of training
- the physical stresses of racing on a horse
- how to work the horse from the ground
- tack fitting and
- day to day care

Having worked in the racing industry, Fred knows and understands exactly what goes on while a horse is in training. This, combined with Rowena’s extensive equine knowledge and practical involvement means the book takes you “from starting stall to stable and everything else in between”.
Re-Educating Racehorses is 224 pages long and has a RRP of £18.99.
