What we aim to solve New!

Southern California Thoroughbred Rescue works to rehabilitate, retrain and re-home Thoroughbred racehorses coming off the track. Many of these horses can no longer be competitive in racing due to injuries, but are perfectly capable of making excellent trail, dressage or even eventing and hunter/jumper horses. Our goal is to assess the capabilities of each horse, start them in training and find them permanent homes where their potential can be fully realized.

Southern California Thoroughbred Rescue aims to rehabilitate, retrain and re-home as many ex-thoroughbred racehorses as we can. Our program is small, but we can make a difference in finding good homes and preventing horses from shipping out of the country for slaughter.

Southern California Thoroughbred Rescue has found we can more easily find appropriate adoptive homes if the Thoroughbreds we take in have some re-training first. Our trainers and our evaluation of a horse's suitability for jumping and other athletic endeavors enhances our ability to match adopters with horses that can better suit their needs. This, in turn, makes it more likely the home will be permanent and the adopter and horse will thrive together.

Currently, we have 2 trainers that are able to ride, re-train and assess our horses. This allows us to start the horses, assess their abilities and skills and further train them to enhance their adopt-ability. Since the horses are boarded with our trainers, it also means those skills are constantly worked on and built up until the horse is adopted. With trainers, our horses may get experience on trails, over jumps and even at jumping competitions.

Southern California Thoroughbred Rescue's goal is to find permanent, appropriate adoptive homes for as many horses as we can. We have taken in horses from the California Retirement Management Account (CARMA) placement program, other rescues and local auctions. Our progress can be tracked both by the achievements of our horses and by the number of adoptions we make.

Southern California Thoroughbred Rescue is actively striving to re-train and adopt more horses every year. 2018 is shaping up to be one of our best years yet for adoptions and achievement by our horses.
