Horse retirements

The Horse Fund assists in two different types of retirements.
If a horse is currently owned by Wasabi Ventures Stables, THF facilitates the retirement, whether it be finding an individual home or working with an aftercare organization.
If a horse is no longer owned by WVS but appears to be at a point in the horse's career where retirement could be valuable, THF will offer to purchase that horse for the purpose of retirement.
