Update #2 with 3-year-old OTTB Undaunted Rags, owned by Kevin Keane. Here's video of our ride on Monday morning of this week. At the start of the ride, I felt that he was a little bit backed off, so we focused on going really forward and keeping the trot nice and big and open. From there, I incorporated poles and small cross-rails, and by the end of this ride, I felt that he was starting to understand the jumping and beginning to enjoy it.

He may be busy riding around international tracks and, you know, the Olympics on most weekends, but Phillip Dutton can also often be found producing the next generation of young horses. With a long-standing partnership and friendship with Graham Motion Racing, Phillip’s always got a fair number of former racehorses coming in to continue on as sport horse prospects. One such young Thoroughbred, Undaunted Rags (Union Rags – Lookout Lady, by Smart Strike), who is owned by Kevin Keane, has been the subject of some of Phillip’s recent training videos.
You can revisit the first update Phillip posted about this 3-year-old who is very much fresh off the track here. In his next update, Phillip focuses on introducing new elements like ground poles and small fences, while also always encouraging the young horse to move forward willingly. It’s so interesting to follow these horses as they learn, and Phillip’s calm and easy approach is good fodder for any horse producer to emulate. Be sure to turn your sound on to hear Phillip’s narration!
Fight back against colic and digestive upset.
Neigh-Lox® Advanced provides a scientifically advanced blend of ingredients that work synergistically to maintain your horse’s digestive tract in peak condition by supporting both the gastrointestinal tissues and the beneficial bacteria that populate the gut. Maintaining a healthy digestive tract reduces the risk of colonic and gastric ulcers, colic, laminitis related to hindgut acidosis, and oxidative stress that damages digestive tract tissues themselves. Horses with a well-balanced GI tract have good appetites, absorb more nutrients from their diets, maintain a strong immune system, and stay healthier.
