Leadership Statement:

In a time where state budgets are being cut and programs to rehabilitate incarcerated men and women, ours is one program that is still in place and amazingly effective. It saves lives, horses and money in the long run.

Programs

Program: Thoroughbred Retirement and Adoption Program (GuideStar Exchange,
The GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more.
January 2014)

Budget:
$2,400,000
Category:
Animal-Related
Population Served:
General Public/Unspecified

Program Description:

Retired Thoroughbreds can be expensive to care for and many are injured when we receive them. We rehabilitate them at state of the art facilities and re-train the sound ones for second careers. They can be adopted for pleasure riding or showing or handicapped riding programs. Those that are not sound live out their lives with us.

Program Long-Term Success:

Our overarching goal is to end the unnecessary slaughter of Thoroughbreds when their racing careers are over.  The racing industry as a whole must step up and take responsibility for the tens of thousands of Thoroughbreds it produces each year, particularly the horses that are injured while training and racing.  Through our correctional facility-based programs, TRF has proven that almost all Thoroughbreds can live a productive life after racing and we will continue to lead the charge in advocating for mandatory funding for retirement and adoption programs.

Program Short-Term Success:

By the end of 2012, TRF will have expanded our correctional facility program to Illinois and California and allow us to transfer more horses from our satellite farms to facilities where they will undergo more .  The new California facility will provide an equine-assisted psychotherapy program for parolees.

Program Success Monitored by:

Semi-annual comprehensive herd inspections are conducted by licensed veterinarians and we share the full results publicly.

Program Success Examples:

Over 4,000 Thoroughbreds have benefited from our program and while most lived with us for the rest of their lives, more than 800 were able to be adopted out to loving homes.  Adopted horses have enjoyed careers as pleasure mounts, competition partners, equine-assisted therapy partners, law enforcement mounts, and simply as pets.

Program: Second Chances Vocational Training Program (GuideStar Exchange,
The GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more.
January 2014)

Budget:
$800,000
Category:
Crime & Legal
Population Served:
Offenders/Ex-offenders

Program Description:

The Second Chances program provides vocational training for incarcerated men and women and follows the curriculum of the nationally accredited Groom Elite program.  Students are all non-violent offenders and provide supervised care for our horses while completing both classroom and hands-on classes.  A final written and practical exam must be passed in order to receive a technical degree in equine care and stable management.

Program Long-Term Success:

We hope to continue expanding our Second Chances program beyond our current 8 states and provide more opportunities for both Thoroughbreds and inmates.  Every facility will have a local group of supporters and volunteers who help educate the public and market adoptable horses to new homes.

Program Short-Term Success:

By the end of 2012, we expect to have opened our newest correctional facility farm in Illinois.  Additionally, our first equine-assisted psychotherapy program for parolees will open in California.  In New York, a new retraining program at our existing Wallkill facility will allows inmates to help prepare NY-bred horses for adoption.

Program Success Monitored by:

Recidivism rates for graduates from our vocational training program are significantly lower than for the general prison population and many graduates stay in touch with us about their professional and personal successes.  As the program continues to grow, more horses will be adopted out, allowing us to rescue others.

Program Success Examples:

Graduates from our Second Chances program are now gainfully employed as farriers, stable managers, grooms, and other jobs within the equine industry.  One gentleman is now a degree-holding substance abuse counselor at the prison in the book "Saving Leslie Jones," he credits the TRF program for motivating him to turn his life around.  Another inmate is now an instructor in the Second Chances program.  Some former inmates have adopted and providing loving homes for horses that had been under their care while in prison.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

The TRF is the oldest and largest organization in the world dedicated to providing permanent, lifelong retirement for former racehorses.  Due to racing-related injuries, fewer than half of America's Thoroughbreds are physically suitable for a second career as riding horses, making them at high risk of being sent to slaughter.  Our correctional facility-based vocational program gives ex-racehorses a job as equine teachers without asking them to perform beyond their ability.  By the end of 2012, TRF will have opened a new facility in Illinois as well as a pioneering program in equine-assisted psychotherapy for parolees in California.
