Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Thoroughbreds may retire from racing as early as two years old. With a lifespan of 20-30 years, it is critical to find a second career for horses coming off the racetrack. By giving horses basic skills for a career as a show, pleasure, family or therapy horse, aftercare organizations can prevent horses from ending up in dangerous situations, such as auctions, where they are in danger of being sold for slaughter.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals are to grow slowly and responsibly in order to have a thriving and sustainable non-profit organization that serves the needs of thoroughbred horses retiring from racing and in need of a second home. We aim to ease the transition to a sport or pleasure horse riding home for both the horses and the adoptive owners. We also hope to continue to highlight the athleticism, versatility and usefulness of the breed and particularly of retired racehorses.

Our strategies are to set limitations on the number of horses we accept at one time based on our financial status and on the time we have to devote to each horse. By giving horses individual attention, we feel they have the best chance of transitioning well to a forever adoptive home and productive second career. As the organization grows, we hope to expand our footprint and responsibly help as many horses as possible. We are constantly communicating through email, social media and by directly reaching out to people about our organization and about retired thoroughbred racehorses. We work with racing connections and the public to bridge the gap for the best interest of the horses.

Our organization is comprised of a committed group of volunteers who have expertise with both equine training and management, as well as marketing, non profit management, and fundraising. We have aimed to grow slowly and responsibly, and we have been successful. Horses are finding happy, secure homes, and we have excellent relationships with both the racing side and aftercare partners.

We have grown from having two horses in our program at a time to having as many as four horses at a time. We have established excellent contacts in both aftercare and with the racing community, and have met some truly amazing people who have adopted our horses. Our budget has grown consistently each year, and our goal to grow slowly and responsibly has been achieved. With our growing finances, we are now working with an accountant to further enhance our fiscal responsibility.
