Most of the horses at TRF sustained career-ending injuries on the racetrack. While they are healthy and happy charging around the fields with their pasture-mates, they are not able to withstand the rigors of steady riding. At TRF, all horses are given permanent, dignified retirement for the rest of their lives; and that is where YOU come in.
At a time when the sports pages are filled with stories of professional athletes retiring after long and successful careers many of us cannot help but be struck by the sad comparison to the future that awaits thousands of professional equine athletes that have given their all to the sport of racing.
Sponsors receive a personalized packet about their selected horse, photos and updates throughout the year. Depending on the facility, you may even be able to join us at an Open Barn and give your horse carrots in person.
