Why Adopt a Horse From the TRF? Adopt One, Save Two!

Adopting a horse from the TRF Herd opens up a space for the TRF to take in a new horse. You adopt one, and you save two!

More than 400 to choose from.   The horses in our herd come in all sizes, shapes and personalities, and they all love attention. Individuals and families who have room in their hearts and homes for a retired racehorse are encouraged to consider adopting.

Our #1 goal for adoption is to find homes for our horses where they are loved and cared for, despite the physical limitations of their age and/or physical challenges. All TRF horses are permanent retirees. While they are not suitable for riding they are pasture sound and well-accustomed to living outdoors (with run-in sheds).

The promise of lifelong sanctuary. As you consider adoption from the TRF, we believe it is important to share that our “return policy” is clear, transparent and free from judgement. If ever a horse adopted from our herd finds him or herself at risk, we will have a place for him – no questions asked.

The benefits of adopting are many. In addition to the love and joy that a adopted horse may bring to your life, be sure to ask about the potential tax advantages available to individuals who adopt from the TRF (a 501c3 non profit organization).
