A Pre-Trainer is responsible for the conditioning of horses prior to them going into the racing stables of a licensed trainer. The reason for this is so the horses head to the trainer with a solid foundation of fitness so the trainer is able to focus on the more serious conditioning which prepares them for racing.  It is also financial beneficial for owners to utilise the services of a Pre-Trainer for fitness grounding each campaign as the costs are lower than those associated with the thoroughbred being in the racing stables of a licensed trainer.

Pre-Trainers have extensive horse handling and training knowledge, they would have worked as Stablehands or held a trainers license in the past.
