Except Janine.
I'd like to learn what issues they face, what they do to overcome them.

Does EPM get blamed in their horses as much as it does in ours?

Do they have hock, stifle, knee, coffin joint problems? Is their way of going less stressful on soft tissues? More stressful?

After all, a horse is a horse of course of course Grin

I can think of 1 reason , they aren't as "hands on" as Standerdbred owners JMO.
Plus there probably aren't too many T-Bred trainers posting on here.

Janine is probably more involved than just this website because of other business ventures
so most of it will pertain to something she is involved in.

as  far as laminitis standard breds are years ahead,t breds common injuries are bucked shins,which we would deal with by painting and giving time off..t breds treat bucked shins by firing them with cryo freezing which in my own opinion is 50/50 that it would work, tbreds nerve horses alot.so if you freeze them,nerve them racin for big purses you will get your money back,and maybe cash a check before you sell them.

T-breds are all about getting them out of there mind.  They pound Levo, adrenal, adenosine.  That's why it takes two of them to handle the maniacs and an outrider to keep them from running off!

No t-bred trainer in their right mind wants to get their horse out of his.  These are simply very high strung athletes. 

Your steroid claim is an overblown myth.  And of course we all know harness trainers don't use any medications on their horses.

You only see two people handling them for big stakes races and as for the "outrider" statement, I assume you're stalking about the pony that most trainers send with the horse to warm up before a race.  As much as anything else, that pony is there to help keep the horse calm.  Yes, they will also help the 110 lb person, who is balanced on his toes in stirrups attached to a little piece of leather that they call a saddle, keep control of the horse.

that is not what everyone does who love their horses and has the time and money to wait until the horse heals,unfortunately this is not the case,they turn them and burn them.
