Johansson, Johanna, 2011. Galoppträning och körning med två travare. First cycle, G1E. Uppsala: SLU, Dept. of Anatomy, Physiology and Biochemistry (until 231231)



The aim of this study was to evaluate whether gallop training, rather than regular drive training, is worthwhile for trotters race performance.

Another aim of the study was to expand the author’s riding- and driving capacity, and get more practical experience on the impact of interval training on trotters.

The sample population in the study was two trotters, one Standardbred, and one cold-blood. Given the small sample population, the results of the study is only indicative on the effects of gallop training on trotters, and not conclusive.

For both horses, the average pulse was higher during gallop training, as compared to during regular training.

Conclusion: Gallop training helps improve the horse’s performance, and is worthwhile for the horse
