Smart Grooming, the brand for show prep and grooming products, has joined up with the Retraining of Racehorses (RoR) in the South West and will be supporting Claire Poole, the Wales and Severn co-ordinator and Clare Blackham the co-ordinator for the South West.
RoR was established to re-home and re-train and for the general welfare of horses that have raced and been in the racing industry. Both these co-ordinators are passionate about the re-schooling and training, as well as producing and competing in different disciplines to suit the need of the individual animal.
The country has been divided into regions and each co-ordinator arranges training in their own areas for RoR members to attend. Part of the overall training covers guidance on schooling for the ring, and tips and techniques for getting a show finish. Within a clinic, show prep would be covered as a practical demonstration.
When an owner has taken on a racehorse to re-train, there may be problems with schooling and management that need addressing, and these clinics provide support and guidance as well as giving the opportunity of sharing ideas to help each other. As part of the training package, this also includes show preparation and grooming to promote wellbeing and to give the best finish possible for the horse when being presented in hand or under saddle both in the ring and for general presentation for all types of competitions.
Smart Grooming look to support riders that really do give something back to their sport and both Claire and Clare are clearly passionate about passing on their knowledge to help and further the careers of racehorses that are no longer part of the racing industry. They are both successful as riders and producers and have enjoyed much success with the re-trained racehorses that have come under their care.
Our products will be used at the clinics and will be available to RoR members for a special price.
