There are many people who swear that they can retrain your horse. Before you invest a dime,
we highly recommend that you ask to see horses that have been retrained to ensure that the horses walk,
trot and canter without the pacing. After all, if the trainer can't show you horses that have been retrained,
is it wise to have the individual work with your horse?
If you have a trainer that you ride with, or if you are in a remote area, the
Standardbred Horse Fan Club's pacer retraining video
was made primarily for the novice and rider with some riding experience who have adopted or brought home a Standardbred horse from the pacing race track or adoption organization, although it will also be useful to instructors and trainers.
This year the club also realized a Pacer Retraining Trainer (PRT) certification and a Pacer Retraining Instructor (PRI) certification.
A certified specialist has demonstrated knowledge, experience and skill with the
Standardbred Horse Fan Club's pacer retraining method
which is the most
popular and widely used retraining method for pacers today. Please contact us
to inquire whether there is a certified retraining pacer expert in your area.
Acquiring a Pacer from the racetrack or a rescue organization is rarely expensive compared to the prices of fully trained horses of other breeds.
The Standardbreds have the stellar qualities of being athletes, sensible and trustworthy and incredibly versatile too!
The breed is
wonderful with children and patient with beginner riders (read more about
the Standardbred Horse breed).

“He became the best horse
I could have ever bought.”
The pacer retraining can be done with a PRT or PRI certified professional or simply by following the
steps in the Standardbred Horse Fan Club's pacer retraining video for a
rewarding and bonding experience with a very positive outcome!
Incorrect retraining can produce more problems than solutions and in fact increase the pacing. Do your investigative
work before entrusting your horse to anyone!
