Why do some of the saddles on the race horses have a big hook in the back of them? Why are there chains around their loins?
My understanding is that because of their heavy weight, the saddle horses are not allowed to use their tongues while at rest! So why do they get chained up like that? They are allowed to lick the water out of the water source, which does seem to get them a nice cool drink at the end of the day, especially if they do it outside! What are the chains and hooks, anyway? It’s not a big deal if you don’t have them around.
Are there any races to use those? Yes, we have two:
– Our Great North Road Race, sponsored and run by the City of St. John’s.
– The Toronto Rodeo, sponsored by the York Region.
We have our own series of smaller racing events. We also run an annual event known as the Black and Blue Run for kids. In this series of racing events, the horse has their tongue tied for a long length of time.
How do race horses eat? There is a common misconception that race horses feed on feed. That is just NOT the case at St. John’s! The horses are given a high level of nutrition which includes all of the nutritional needs for good health, speed and endurance. What they are given is supplemented water and some sugar, but the horses eat only what they are offered in their own barns. Our horses have access to the feed for a short length of time after the horses are put to sleep. They do not have to wait around for feed.
St. John’s Rowing Club’s diet for its own members is very specific in their requirements to meet all of the nutrition requirements that a race horse needs. As we get a little more experienced, we will be able to give our race horses additional nutrients, if they choose to partake. For now, they receive water and sugar in their own feed and are given their own food. All food is prepared in the clubhouse by the club members.
How long can our race horses live at St. John’s? St. John’s races offer a very comfortable environment and a very fast paced racing program.
What does an average horse live at St. John’s? The average horse at St. John’s will stay in the Barn at the Barn for about seven years. After that, it is given to a trainer. They get to learn
