Machine Trains Horses – level 2

Horses can get injured during training, and usually it is because of human error. To protect horses, engineers develop a machine that can train them.

The machine runs a 1.5-kilometre track and recently people installed it in England. It aims to reduce the risk of injury to young horses. However, only time will show if it works. The ‘monorail’ cost 20 million pounds.

Difficult words: develop (create), reduce (make less), monorail (a railway of a single rail).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
