Most trainers have been working with horse's close to all their lives. This gives them the knowledge to know that every horse is different and what works for one may not for another. A trainer is responsible for the care and training of your horse as well as mapping out a plan for workouts, trials, races and also when the horse is due for a spell.

Trainers details can be found in the Trainer/Driver Enquiry section of the website and you can also check out the Premiership leader board to see where they are sitting. The trainer is the person who you are going to work with on decisions regarding the horse.

When you win money with your horse at the races the trainer receives 10% of the stakes won and the driver receives 5%. Stakes payments are processed and distributed by the accounts department of HRNZ every fortnight.
