The Irish National Stud & Gardens in Kildare (Ireland) gained a wonderful new experience; the Irish Racehorse Experience. An experience about the story of the thoroughbred breed and horse racing in Ireland.
The experience in the Irish National Stud & Gardens takes the visitor into the world of thoroughbred horses. The visitor experiences what it is like to prepare a foal for his first race and a glorious career. You will discover what is needed to accomplish this and what distinguishes a “normal” horse from a racing horse.
From choosing nutrition to learning training methods, everything a thoroughbred needs for success is presented and simulated with various installations. Every visitor is challenged with the help of a tablet game to educate and train his/her race horse to actually ride the winning horse across the finish line.
