Thoroughbreds can have safe, successful performance lives after the track
WHAT WE DO
CARE AND REHABILITATION
We evaluate each thoroughbred and give them top notch care and rehabilitation off the track. Thoroughbred's can come with many uncomfortable problems after their race career. With proper vetting, shoeing and nutrition they will be able to embark on their new journey correct and willingly.
The journey begins
We rescue retired race horses straight from the race track to ensure they are in the right hands.
Let them fly
Once our thoroughbreds are at maximum health we are able to start the re-training process. Once the horses are started in the program we will be able to evaluate what they are capable of training for.
START A NEW LIFE
Finding their forever home
Our thoroughbreds will be happy, healthy, and given the opportunity show their capabilities through professional training and showing. Once these steps are established our rescue will be able to find them the right matches to contracted, forever homes to ensure safe and successful lives for these amazing animals.
