If you’ve never gotten to open up a horse to his maximum speed on a wide-open race track, we’ve got the next best thing for you.
My first horse training job was working for small time race horse trainer at his private farm in New Hampshire. There, I would prepare his horses that had completed their racing career for a life off the track. Generally this meant teaching them that they had more gears than “go” and “whoa,” but nonetheless one of my favorite things to do was take them out to the big pasture and really let them open up. It was seriously one of the coolest feelings in the world, and while my little mustang has other talents, his energy-efficient movement means that his top speed doesn’t even begin to compare to those thoroughbreds who were quite literally born to run.
While I’m mostly content to prance around in my letter-adorned sand box atop my feral pony, from time to time I find myself missing the sensation of thundering over the ground with the wind whipping in my face. Below, this Hungarian duo of race horses helps me scratch that itch.
