The findings of the study, by researchers from the University of Life Sciences in Lublin, Poland, have been published online in the “Journal of Equine Veterinary Science”.

The objective of the study was to compare the responses of horses of different breeds to a sympathetic training method used during an initial training period, before the horses started their first racing season.

The researchers, Iwona Janczarek, Anna Stachurska, Witold Kędzierski, and Izabela Wilk, used 72 horses, comprising 24 Thoroughbreds, 24 purebred Arabians, and 24 Anglo Arabs.

Each breed group consisted of 12 colts and 12 fillies.
