I totally think it can help in certain horses. I have a real solid horse that tends to be lazy. every once in a while I have to breeze him. It really helps him free up. I have breezed young horses that just could not figure out how to run with someone on their backs. Never to much however.

I just pony mine to the back of the pasture and he breezes himself back to the barn. Tail straight up in the air. He is a turd.

I think it is good to sprint them, or breeze them every so often. Fallon Taylor has a video on youtube about it, that made a lot of sense to me. Certainly don't over do it, but if you expect them to run hard at a barrel race then you should condition them to it. I however think you could blow them up in a hurry if you are doing it too much.

In my legging up routine, I have a spot I breeze my horses, as you need to build up their wind, and also condition the fast twitch (sp) muscles.

 Seriously??  Although I don't think barrel horses need breezed side by side, that is just a ridiculous statement. How do you think they breeze race horses...alone all the time?

Working beside another horse once in awhile certainly is not going to hurt. You can make one an idiot just as easily by themselves. You know for the past 50+ years I have wanted my horses to walk quietly down the alley. Have I been doing this wrong? My horses used to be 1D horses when I could actually ride. I guess they are still 1D horses just not with me on them---laughing.

My gelding likes to run & used it as a way out of slow work in the beginning. Now when he does great on a particularly difficult or long trail ride or after a good amout of slow work ...breezing is his reward.. Kills 2 birds with one stone.

Without getting too technical, the trainer works horses to get them fit or keep them fit. Once the trainer gets a horse on a schedule, he wants to keep it. Chances are the trainer is getting them ready for a particular race. Depending on the distance and time between races will dictate how far and fast the horse goes. There are different thoughts on Breezing,  depends on the trainer. I’m a trainer who does not like to work the horses fast. I was always taught to leave something in the tank. There are horses born with natural speed and like to work so those are expected to work fast.
