In the thick of it.......

Dr. Gordon put up a couple of posts about a test we started at the farm. In her last two posts she details how we started this particular test, now we are right in the middle of working our horses on their exercise program! I made a quick video of the daily workout for our exercise study here at the farm. You can see the horses being set up with a heart rate monitor so that we can see how hard they are working, then see them progressing through a workout. All sixteen horses on the test get work 3 days per week at this stage, we will increase the intensity as they become more fit throughout the test. We had rain all day yesterday so there are a few muddy horses in the picture, but it sure was nice today!
