Love To Hate The Profession
  • Since one can not gain education to become a
    trainer, growing up around horses is the best way
    to gain entry into the profession.
  • Working with horses daily and starting to gain
    experience is key.

    path after school, try to network and get into
    reputable stable.

Notes
  • Out of all the professions that are involved with
    the race track, I chose thoroughbred trainers. I
    chose this profession because no college
    classroom education is required, although much
    education is gained through observations,
    volunteering, and apprentice type work. I found
    it to be quite interesting.
