Break Training

Break Training at Brazeau Thoroughbred Farms

The Brazeau Thoroughbred Farm's modern training complex provides our horses with the best possible care, through frequent visits by gentle farriers and our skilled veterinarian, all to ensure that our horses are kept fit and healthy. Our grooms and veterinarian teach the yearlings about being handled, about wearing a horse collar (halter), and walking on a lead, as well as receiving medications.

2013-colt--Silic-x-Aunt-PollyLong before a young Thoroughbred goes to a professional racehorse trainer they begin learning the life of a racehorse at Brazeau Thoroughbred Farms. We watch interactions between the dams and help to familiarize them with people, where they grow comfortable and learn to cooperate and interact with humans.

Brazeau Thoroughbred Farms also practices imprint training; our foals are hugged and stroked immediately upon birth.  This acquaints them with the smells and sensations of being handled by people while helping to reduce stress in advanced care, as they mature and need to be shod, groomed or tacked up.

We specialize in breaking-in and pre-training through trial stage, weanling handling and adjustment. All of the weanlings and yearlings at Brazeau Thoroughbred Farms run in spacious green pastures and are segregated according to age and sex. This enables them to socialize with their peers while developing a strong heart, bones and muscles.

We Halter Break And Groom Daily

foal-in-trainingBy the time our foals are yearlings, they have had all the tender loving care possible. Halter breaking teaches your horse the process of moving their head in several different directions according to commands.

Teaching your weanlings, yearlings and mares forward movement includes holding the rope beneath the chin and applying forward pressure and keeping the pressure firm until your horse steps forward. We teach backward motion, by holding the rope under the horse’s chin, with pressure applied to get them to step back.

Brazeau trainers use similar teaching processes to break your weanlings, yearlings for up and down motioning, guiding them to the left and right, etc. The rest is up to their natural athletic ability. When yearlings leave Brazeau Thoroughbred Farms, they are physically and mentally ready for their formal training.
