About the Horse Show

On October 20th, the TRF and Blackburn Correctional Complex invite the world to participate in a “Horse Show unlike any other“. Streaming live this worldwide premiere will shine the spotlight on the horse handling skills, equine health and anatomy knowledge acquired by the men in the program, and the powerful ways in which the horses of the TRF have changed their lives for the better.

Join us from the comfort of your home, wherever you live, at 8pm (ET) on October 20, 2020. The TRF Blackburn 2020 Horse Show will inspire those who love horses and humans, around the world.

Promotional Partners

Promotional Partners are organizations who believe in the mission of the TRF and the work of the TRF Second Chances Program – at Blackburn and across the United States: Saving Horses and Saving Lives. These organizations, businesses, racing partnerships, media partners and passionate individuals have joined us as “co-hosts” of the TRF Blackburn 2020 Horse Show. They have actively invited their friends, family, clients (and maybe even a few strangers) to tune in and enjoy the show on October 20th, 8pm ET. These amazing folks have helped us spread the word, share the story and expand the awareness of the life-changing work that the TRF horses are doing, every day.
