Horses can be moved from the farm (in England, for you) to the racetrack (in England).  Any time horses are at a racetrack, they lose natural energy.  Any time a horse is at the farm, they gain natural energy.

How do you bring your horse back to the farm?

Also, if a horse is injured, right now, and I want to bring it "home", how do I do that?

You can't.  Not until next year.

I have a problem.
I want to ship my horse from England to Australia, and it does not even show up on the ship to drop down bar.
Does not even show for any of my stateside horses.
There is no racing in England for 3 months and I would like to try and run him.
Thanks,
Brenda

Check the shipping page...shipping from England to Aus. costs $27,000, which you don't have.  Once you can afford the shipping fee, you can ship your horse.

Shanthi,

Is the shipping program adding a day to the "ship and cost" of a horse moving from a farm to the tracks outside of there home base track? An example would be from my farm outside Woodbine to Aqueduct. Normally it's a 2 day ship between the two and now I see it's three!

Yes, whenever a horse is shipped to/from a farm, it takes an extra day.  (Hence shipping from farm A to farm B, both in NY, taking 3 days).

The advantage to having your horse at a farm is that your horse will regain energy/natural energy quickly (compared to the track, anyway).  No training will be allowed when at your farm, though.

This part confuses me.  No training at home?   ???

"Farm" in the game is defined as a breeding farm only.  Thus, there are no tracks on which to workout at the farm.

So to train I would have to move the horses to a track nearby?  Even if not entered in a race...can that be done?  I have two nearby tracks to choose from.

(sorry...gonna be a million dumb questions for a couple of weeks.  :-[ )

Yep, you can ship them to a track without them being entered in anything. Just use the shipping page that links from your stable's home page and ship them wherever you want them to train at.
