100% of our total programs and services are horse-related.
Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Beyond The Roses Equine is an all volunteer group whose mission is to provide racing thoroughbreds, and other breeds of horses, an alternative to being sent to slaughter for human consumption or ending their careers being abandoned or neglected and to educate people in their care and welfare. Beyond The Roses Equine offers horses of all age's rehabilitation, retraining and placement into approved homes that will offer them second careers.
Beyond The Roses Equine Rescue and Retirement (BTRE) is an ALL VOLUNTEER organization that transitions thoroughbreds off the racetrack into new careers and all other breeds of horses, into approved, loving homes from all over the United States. Beyond The Roses Equine Rescue and Retirement has many volunteers that have been, in the past, been involved in horse rescue and have years of experience rehabilitating, retraining and marketing thoroughbreds and other horses into new homes and careers. Without the help of BTRE, many of these horses would be sent to auctions where they would be picked up by kill buyers and sent to slaughter.<br /><br />This group has been involved with thoroughbred and horse rescue with other 501c3 groups and each other. Racing trainers approach us when they don't have the time or they are unable to find homes for their horses, when they can no longer compete in racing. We also help horses that have been neglected, abused or unwanted. Many of these horses come to us severely underweight and in need of medical care. Veterinarians work with us to evaluate medical conditions when they first arrive at our farms. <br /><br />In October 2012, BTRE rescued six (6) thoroughbreds that had recently raced and ended up in the hands of a kill buyer at an auction headed to a Canadian slaughterhouse and in January, 2013 rescued eight (8) thoroughbreds and a mustang that had been abandoned and were not being fed. In 2012 we were able to place 7 horses into new, pre-approved, loving home. We currently have 8 horses in our program awaiting new homes. <br /><br />While building the horses up to good condition, experienced horse people work with them to evaluate their abilities to be riding horses. Many can be used for trail, dressage, jumping or for pasture companions. In the mean time, BTRE markets to fine them suitable homes. <br /><br />Beyond The Roses Equine Rescue and Retirement also assists racing owners and trainers and other people in need of help, in finding homes themselves, by listing horses on Beyond The Roses Equine Rescue and Retirement's website at www.beyondtherosesequine.org . Beyond The Roses Equine Rescue and Retirement volunteers talk with trainers and owners and take pictures and descriptions of horses they wish to sell. Often, if homes cannot be found, Beyond The Roses Equine Rescue and Retirement is asked to take the horse into our program. These horses are taken to one of our farms or foster homes, where the horses are photographed with pictures and descriptions immediately posted to Beyond The Roses Equine Rescue and Retirement's website. Funds for veterinary care and feed and general care are provided for by Beyond The Roses Equine Rescue and Retirement. <br /><br />Beyond The Roses Equine Rescue and Retirement uses the internet, using Facebook and other horse rescue forums and blogs, to fundraise to help these horses. Funds are raised in accordance with the number of horses we take in. The internet resources are also used for marketing to find them homes. BTRE also applies to other organizations and foundations that provide grants to help these horses.
Beyond The Roses Equine Rescue & Retirement is an equine rescue and does not work with other non-horse related programs.
