If you have a schedule set up for your horses to train on and you don't train them on that day by going to the workouts page and actually finishing the track type/ jockey etc, does the computer do that for you at a set time? If yes, what is the time it does it at. If no, do they "obviously" miss a day of training?

If you have a schedule that includes some sort of activity on Wednesday (or any other day, but today's Wednesday ;)) and you don't go in and do it manually, the computer will do it for you.  The computer picks a random jockey and a random track (it picks between dirt/turf; or jumps/no jumps depending on whether your horse is a steeplechaser or not).  (Obviously if your horse is walking 1 mile, jumps/no jumps makes no difference because they only jump the jumps if they're going fast enough...i.e. galloping or breezing ;))

The computer automatically does training for the previous day at 12:04am PDT (3:04am EST).  (So for Wednesday training, the computer would auto-train on Thursday morning.)  This allows everyone a full 24hrs to train their horse before the computer steps in and does it for you.  (Note: that is also when the computer goes through and ranks all the horses who breezed, so you will not see a ranking on your horse's workout page until the next day.)

Edit: If your horse does not have a schedule that includes something on Wednesday, the computer will ignore it and the horse will not train at all unless you train it yourself.

Wow.. I'm glad I found this post. I was so lost at first. I came back from vacation and saw all sorts of posts about training and I'm like.. what did I miss?

I think this is a really cool feature, and adds even more realism to the game. Completely rockin'.  :D

Just a question about horse injury recovery-

I had two horses get cuts during workouts on the 4th and 6th.  I started them walking at about a half mile at 20% yesterday, and did the same again today.  Is this too soon to start doing light "recovery" works such as walking, or can it be done earlier for a milder injury like a cut?  Also, is there any specific recommended time that we should wait to work a horse after say, swelling?  I was thinking start walking about 20 days after, trotting and cantering 25 days after, and then racing after about a month.  Is that long enough?  Again, I know it is all subjective to the horse, but i was just wondering about it.

Um....those sound good, I guess.  Injuries are treated in a very common-sense sort of manner.  i.e. what you would do with your horse (or yourself) is probably fine.  ;)

Technical question: How do you delete or replace a personal training schedule for a horse?

If your horse is injured during scheduled stable training will the program stop it from being trained at the next scheduled stable training?
Thanks. :)

No, because then you'd be able to tell when the horse is healed just by checking when they start working out again.

Is there a margin of error in the comments you get back?  Let's say you try this whacky equipment on a horse that you've had running well and they jockey says '____ Loves his equipment!'  Are they right or are they playing Grumpy Old Trainer and misleading you :D  I was just curious, I'd hate to mess up a horse by changing equipment when I shouldn't.

The jockey will give you feedback after a workout.  It will vary for each workout, but could cover pretty much any stat the GOT provides.  However, jockey feedback is strongly correlated to how much experience that jockey has with the horse (see above), so take their feedback with a grain of salt!  (They also give feedback on how experienced they are with the horse, to give you a guide on how trustworthy/knowledgeable they are.)
