Champion Racehorse
Champion Racehorses have won more than 15 Advanced or International Racing Competitions at the Equestrian Center. Their racing fame makes them and their offspring far more valuable to horse buyers and breeders.
Long Distance Racer
To be a Long Distance Runner, a horse must gallop more than 20,000 meters. After achieving this milestone, every second spent galloping brings utter joy and satisfaction of knowing one was born to run with the wind.
Endurance Equine
The title of Endurance Equine is given to horses that have spent more than 15 hours Training For Races. These horses have built up their endurance to the point that they no longer get fatigued from race training.
