Video: The Exercise Riders

GallopingCover01aExercise riders serve the valuable purpose of getting all horses ready to race by riding them throughout the early morning hours day in and day out. They are some of the unheralded heroes behind the success of every horse, trainer and jockey. This week’s Canterbury Spotlight checks in with Tiny Volby, an exercise rider at Canterbury Park.

    It’s helpful to see all aspects of thoroughbred racing, including the back side of Canterbury. Thanks for highlighting a typical day of an exercise rider. It’s good to imagine the whole picture.
