Saving horses. Saving lives. 

Most Thoroughbred rescue groups retrain and swiftly adopt out horses for a fee, but the TRF focuses our primary efforts on former racehorses whose racing-related injuries have left them best suited to a quiet life at pasture.

Many of these horses are an integral part of our correctional facility-based vocational training programs in equine care and stable management.  Through this unique partnership, incarcerated men and women learn important lessons in compassion and responsibility as well as a useful trade while the horses receive the quality hands-on care they deserve. We currently care for hundreds of equine residents and most will live happily into their 20’s and 30’s.  

The TRF receives no government funding and there are no rules that require the racing industry to support its retirees.  Our Thoroughbreds are 100% dependent on the generosity of private donors like you.



Gifts may be made in honor or in memory of someone special and sponsorships make a unique and meaningful gift as well.
