About Us

Horse Racing Sense is a website that shares our experience with horses through blogging, and we intend to create Youtube channels to continue to spread our love and knowledge of all things horses.

“I try to provide the most comprehensive information for people who are interested in horses or the horse racing industry,” Miles.

During our time in the horse industry, we’ve been involved in different disciplines and breeds of horses. We have purchased yearlings at auction, raised foals, trained horses, and purchased horses already trained.

We currently have six racehorses in training.

OUR STORY

We began this website to share horse information and point out the benefits gained from horse ownership. We have articles about the physical benefits of riding, the lessons learned from owning and riding horses, and many others that stress the positive aspects of horse ownership.

Many people aren’t aware of the positives gained from owning and riding horses, so we thought this would be an excellent way to spread the word. Besides the benefits of horse ownership, we also provide exciting history and fascinating information about unique horse breeds.

We write about the horses that were used in war, the history of the saddle stirrup, and the back story of why horses race counter-clockwise.

We also share our experience dealing with the health issues horses suffer. We explain cribbing, colic, lameness, and many other ailments that you will likely face when you own a horse. Owning a horse is a responsibility as well as an investment, so it’s critical to be able to recognize signs of distress.

There are many different types of horses and equine activities. We cover unique breeds such as Gypsy Vanners, Akhil-Teke, and the Friesian horse. We also tell you our favorite trail riding breeds and what traits to look for when buying a horse.

We explain the terms all equestrians need to understand, so you feel comfortable discussing horses with your veterinarian or other equestrians.

Horse ownership is expensive, hard work, and risky, but it is also fun and rewarding. We provide a look at the cost of buying a racehorse, claiming a horse, and the expenses associated with training.

We made a lot of mistakes early on, and we share our experiences here. The unsuspecting can get taken advantage of by unscrupulous people in the horse industry.

Our group at horseracingsense shares our experiences with different riding equipment and tack that we find useful and give our best recommendations for products we believe work the best.

For example, we review leg wraps, bell boots, fly masks, and many other standard products equestrians frequently use. Knowledge is vital to avoid cheap knock-offs.

These are the items that look great in the pictures, but when they’re delivered, they don’t even look like the same product. More and more people order from the internet, so we provide a review so you can feel confident about your order.

Most of us wear cowboy boots daily for work and play. So cowboy boots are a hot topic, and no one lacks an opinion about their favorite brand. We try to cut through the sentiment and provide a helpful review of cowboy boots.

We have owned racing quarter horses and thoroughbreds, barrel horses, trail riding, and ranch horses. Through working with horses, we have bonded with a group of like-minded people and gained a lot of useful information. On this website, we share the knowledge we’ve achieved on our journey.

We recently took a trip to Ireland and had the opportunity to check out the way they raise their Thoroughbred racehorses. Below is a picture of young horses turned out after going through their initial training.
