This is an entry level course for people who work or want to work in the horse
racing industry. The stablehand works under the direction of a trainer or stable
foreman but is also able to act autonomously in certain situations requiring
solutions to a limited range of problems, or work as part of a team.
As a stablehand you can be employed in a thoroughbred racing stable
and your prime function will be to care for the animals and to meet their
individual needs of feeding, grooming, exercising and transporting; as well as
keeping the environment safe, clean and hygienic. In a thoroughbred racing
stable you will care for thoroughbreds.
