Why Adopt a Horse From the TRF? Our “graduates” have gone on to new careers as eventers, jumpers, dressage, pleasure horses.  Others are part of equine-assisted therapy programs, play polo, serve in mounted police units, or are simply beloved pets.  Whatever you’re looking for, the TRF will help you find the perfect equine partner.


Registered Thoroughbreds who have a race record, are free from contagious or communicable diseases, and for which private retirement is unavailable or unsuitable, may apply to the TRF. The owner of an accepted horse must submit a properly endorsed Jockey Club certificate of foal registration transferring title to the horse to the Foundation and transport the horse to the facility. A retirement fee will be requested in order to complete the retirement process.
