Horse Sponsorship




 Sponsor a former racehorse


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.  Depending on the facility, you may even be able to join us at an Open Barn and give your horse carrots in person.    They make great gifts  to celebrate birthdays, holidays, and other special occasions, and we can mail a packet directly to the recipient of your choice. We also offer a “special kid-friendly” sponsorship packet for children! Check out our level break down at the bottom of the page for more information.

Each level receives its own personalized packet and updates. Please look over the levels to see which one is right for you! Want to make a donation, but aren’t quite ready to commit to the friendship levels? No worries, any donation made towards to the Sponsorship Program, will go right to the horses!
