Check Out the Help File loacated under Support at the bottom of your main stable page. This will give you a better explanation of meters and other site features.
For beginners it is reccommended that you use 2 Mile Lead Pony Gallops daily until the meters are maxed. It is more complicated than this but you will learn over time and maybe through some trial and error what works best for you. Plenty of help is available on the forum and chat room.
Most importantly when you first begin is not to over train your horses. Give them a rest day every 3 days or so. Otherwise their fitness might begin to drop instead of improve. We do offer unlimited training for unraced horses only but once they race there can only be one training or workout per day. It is not recommended to train, workout or race a horse in 4 consecutive days.
