Training & Working Your Virtual Horse

How to train your virtual race horse

This set up below will give the largest gain in meters for your virtual horse. Refer to the Quick Start Virtual Racing Guide for more detailed training techniques for your virtual horse and smaller meter movements. Once meters reach 95 or above they will not move any higher and you will need to either race the horse or work the horse to flip the horse's meters.

Refer to the quick start guide in the site help tab for further guidelines on virtual horse training techniques

Set the default horse training parameters
3d horse training

Set up your default virtual horse training parameters like the image to the left. Race track surfaces and race track locations will not make a difference in the training but the distance and instructions given will.

Unraced horses have unlimited training ability until they race for the first time. For this reason we recommend training at every distance and every instruction just to learn what makes a meter move and by how much.

Setting the default horse workout parameters

Unraced horses have unlimited workout ability until they race for the first time. For this reason we recommend working at every distance and every instruction to learm the finish times a virtual horse will at each combination

A virtual horse's workout time is the most important piece of imformation when deciding a virtual horse's overall potential

We recommend trying all medications and equipment at one distance and instruction, only changing one aspect at a time for consitency. Once you have decided which medications and equipment work best you can train at other instructions and distances
