Horse training begins with foals. Regular individual training after the race begins in May - July, taking into account the early maturity, the degree of general fitness and the state of health of each horse. In summer, it is useful to combine training with grazing young animals in levada.
The training adheres to the principle of alternating movement with different gaits (step, trot) at different speeds at a trot (trot, swing, swing). The speed of the trot movement at first is usually 7-8 minutes (at 1600 m), and then it is gradually brought to 5-5.5 minutes. The first sweeps are usually done at a distance of no more than 400 m in 50-55 s, and then increase to 800 m (1 min 55 s - 1 min 45 s) and 1600 m (3 min 40 s 3 min 30 s).
In a weekly cycle of training loads, two workouts are carried out, for example, on Tuesday and Friday, with the inclusion of a swing. In this case, the work with a sweep is usually done in two rounds. On the rest of the days, work is carried out with a trot of two and then three reprises at a distance of 2400-3200 m.
An approximate scheme of the factory training of trotting young animals with the inclusion of a sweep is as follows:
1 round; trot - 2800 m, sweep - 400 m (55-50 s), trot - 400 m, step - 1200 m;
11th round; trot - 2800 m, sweep - 400 m (50-45 s), trot - 400 m, step - 1600 m (or wiring in 30 minutes).
During the period of factory training, all work must be started and finished by moving the horse with a step. After 3-4 months. instead of sweeps, swing work is carried out at a distance of 1600 m with a gradual reduction in the time of its passage from 3 min 25 s to 3 min 05 s. At the same time, the last 200-400 m pass much faster.
In autumn, during a period of muddy or icy snow, work of horses with a swing and swoop should not be carried out. In this case, they are limited to trot work in three reprises. With the establishment of a snow path, work is resumed with a swing and swing. In January or February, they begin to carry out swing work in three rounds once a week, bringing the agility of passing a distance of 1600 m to 3 minutes 2 minutes 50 seconds. When building agility at the end of the distance, it is necessary to monitor the accuracy of the movement and the correctness of the horse's course.
At the end of March or April, horses that have reached the age of two are usually sent to the racetrack for further training and testing.
Factory and hippodrome training is a single process of formation, development and identification of the agility of horses of trotting breeds. After the end of quarantine, the hippodrome training is carried out taking into account the degree of preparedness of young stock in the stud farm, for which the rider must familiarize himself with the results of control work, study the nature and characteristics of the behavior of each horse that comes to him. Horses in the training department are trained in groups of the appropriate age. At first, a well-trained older horse should be included in the young group. During the first month of the horse's stay at the racetrack, the training load is reduced, while continuing to work out the balance and correct movements at the trot. From the 2nd month, they gradually increase the volume of trot work and carry out fast and swinging work in three rounds. As the horses' agility and readiness increase in the third round of fast work, they make two or three short throws at 100-200 m.

An approximate scheme of the three-git frisky work of trotting horses of 2 years old is as follows:
1st round: trot - 2400 m sweep - 1600 m (4 min - 3 min 20 s), trot - 800 m, step - 800 m;
2nd round: trot - 1600 -2400 m, max - 1600 m (3 min 20 s - 2 min 45 s), trot - 800 m, step - 1600 m;
III round: trot - 1600 m, techniques of 100 - 200 m 1-2 times, frisky - 1600 m (quieter than the prize for 15-20 s), trot - 800 m, step - 30 minutes.
