Video: The Grooms

Canterbury ActionCanterbury’s backside is home to roughly 1,500 horses. Behind each of these horses is a dedicated team that includes owners, trainers, vets, farriers and – maybe most importantly – grooms. Grooms are specifically assigned to a given number of horses – typically 5-6 – and they are their designated caregiver.

A good group of grooms is essential to any barn’s success. The job certainly isn’t a glamorous one, check out this week’s feature on these valuable team members:
