As mentioned last month here on Retired Racehorse, the Retired Racehorse Training Project, put together by eventing trainer Steuart Pittman, is going to do something very cool this year: the Retired Racehorse Training Challenge.
I think this is the most brilliant idea EVER, equally if not more brilliant than my idea for the Retired Racehorse Movie. Trainers will be given an OTTB, thirty days, and a pat on the back (I assume.)
Pittman tells The Chronicle of The Horse:
“I think it’s amazing that no one has ever done an ex-racehorse challenge before,” said Steuart Pittman, president of the Retired Racehorse Training Project. “It’s a way to show people what it’s like to train these horses.”
I want to be one of the trainers. But I’m not. The Chronicle has the listing here.. they are slightly more heavy-hitting than I am!
