Training the trotters

Cessnock Showground

I stayed at Cessnock Showground for a couple of nights to get some repairs on my car. I was fascinated by the trotters who were stabled there and trained on the race-track. I do not know anything about horses and I think I have been to horse races maybe once in my life.

Training the trotter

The boys took the trotters out in the morning and evening for training. They would do a couple of laps a bit slowly and then go flat out for a couple of laps. And then slow them down again before giving another couple of horses a run.

And they are racing.
