"Retraining Goals" spotlights retired racehorses in second careers. In this recurring segment, we follow a different horse and rider combination in-training each month, gaining insight on their challenges + triumphs from meltdowns to ribbons along the way! This segment is presented by The Retired Racehorse Project.
It’s finally time for the Makeover! After months of training and obstacles, Laura and Whitmore get ready to tackle the Competitive Trail on their big day. Laura’s feeling confident about the trail course, but with their cramming, can they bring in a win for this retired racehorse? Will the two of them pull through and show off everything new that Whitmore’s learned?
Find out how things turn out for Whitmore and Laura, and what new opportunities lay in store for the future.
