  • TAG : Careers with Animals: Exercise Rider
ADD TO CART
  • While Willard worked many top Southern California horses during his long career as an exercise rider, in his 60s he gained fame as the regular morning rider aboard 2010 Horse of the Year . Trainer John Shirreffs, who Feb. 18 confirmed the passing of his friend, stable foreman, and exercise rider, said as great a horseman as Willard was, he'll first remember the man.

    We are looking for an exercise rider for our race horses here in Iowa. If interested please email…I would provide transportation and place to stay. Thanks, Robyn

    I just saw an old message of yours on an internet board. Are you still looking for exercise riders? I have some experience on a training track in South Carolina (Glenview Farm) where I rode two and three year olds out for their daily workout with the trainer, ex jock Joey Hanson. It was a blast and I am looking to get my exercise rider license for working at a track.

    Americans talk about how brave NASCAR Drivers are putting their lives at risk for a few million dollars a year. I hate to think what that exercise rider got paid simply doing what he loved. Of course this will never make ESPN news.

    I was an exercise rider many years ago. It's not as dangerous as the jockey's job but it can be life threatening at any given moment. And the person Ken N who made the remark about horse meat for Japan. On an article about the loss of a person and an innocent animal, needs to read other web sites.

A Day in the Life of an Exercise Rider - The New York Times

An exercise rider can ride 6 to 8 horses per day on average. The work day usually begins around five in the morning and ends around noon, with most riders working six days a week. Riders must be familiar with the usual risks of working with horses and keep their safety equipment in good repair.
