Mission:
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.

Summary of organization's goals, strategies to achieve the goals, accomplishments, and capabilities to meet the goals, including its long-term plans to sustain its programs:
Beyond The Roses Equine Rescue (BTRE) strives to help as many horses as possible out of bad situations and place into new loving homes. Since organizing BTRE we have helped over 200 horses get placed into new homes. The rescue is dependent on public donations and continuously holds fundraisers to raise funds to care for these horses. BTRE shares information to educate the public on the care of horses on social media.

Horse Rescue, Rehabilitation, Retraining & Re-homing:
Overview of our programs involved with rescue, rehabilitation, retraining, re-homing and/or retirement:
     Beyond The Roses Equine Rescue and Retirement, aka 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’s 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.
     
     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.
     
     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.
     
     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.
     
     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. 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.

Community Outreach and/or Public Education:
Overview of our programs involved with providing community outreach and/or public education programs involving horses:
     Educate the public on social media in horse care. Also attend Expos to extend our knowledge to the public.

Additional information about our intake, assessment & training policies and practices:
When picking up a horse from and owner or trainer, a BTRE Donation Agreement and Release Form. If Jockey Club Registration Papers or other registration papers are available, they must be signed by the owner and released to the rescue. A current coggins must also be relinquished with the horse. When picking up the horse, attempt to collect as much information on the horse as possible, including but not limited to, soundness, recent vaccinations, type of feed being fed and how much and any medical history or conditions. If the horse is being transported over state lines, a Health Certificate shall be completed, signed by a veterinarian and accompany the horse. If the horse is being donated, a donation receipt from BTRE shall be supplied to the owner. Before loading the horse for transporting, verify that the horse is fit for travel. If a horse is not fit for travel, call the Executive Director for instructions on how to proceed. If a veterinarian is needed, one will be contacted. All horses coming into the BTRE program will be placed into quarantine for 2 to 3 weeks to avoid spreading any disease the horse may be carrying. Please follow the Quarantine Procedures written for the rescue. This time is also taken to evaluate the horse. Upon arrival, arrangements will be made with the veterinarian to have the horse examined as soon as possible. Records for the individual horse shall be kept for management and veterinary care of the horse. This information will be documented on the Basic Intake Information Form. These forms will be kept in a binder at the farm where the horse is located. These forms will be maintained and kept up to date by the caretaker of the horse. Much of the information to be provided on the forms included:  Individual animal records showing origin, age, species, gender, Microchip number, tattoo or brand and registration papers.  A complete set of photos (front, both sides and rear) of each horse on intake and periodically as needed.  Transport records to and from the rescue shall be maintained which includes: health certificate, current negative coggins test, date of transportation, transfer method, euthanasia or other disposition of the animal.  Documentation of condition such as a body condition score. • Individual veterinary record including medical history, vaccination, coggins tests, deworming schedule, dental health, fecal counts and treatments. • Hoof condition and farrier appointments. • Perform a simple soundness exam and document your findings for the veterinarian. • Observe behavioral and physical assessment and measures taken to ensure well-being. • Reproductive status and history, if known. • Weight and weight history, current diet and record of diet changes • Training and rehabilitation records showing completed objectives and those in development. • Acquisition documents, as required by law or documented evidence of acquisition when equine obtained from such sources as auctions, law enforcement or other government official. After the horse has been examined by a veterinarian, arrangements should be made to remove racing plates and have the horse’s hooves trimmed and place shoes on, if needed. Many thoroughbreds coming into our program directly from the track have been retired for numerous reasons, including injuries. Before turning the horse out into a paddock, it shall be examined by a veterinarian to make sure there are no underlying problems, such as soundness. Do not give any horse medications without being advised by a veterinarian. During the first few weeks the horse is with the rescue, observe the horse for disposition and handling. This will help with determining what other horses it will be able to be turned out with in the future. Thoroughbreds on the track are used to have a daily routine. BTRE likes to give thoroughbreds coming into our program directly off the track a few weeks off to learn how to be a “horse” again. Let the horse adjust to his new surroundings and paddock before introducing him/her to a new pasture mate. Many of these horses have not been turned out with other horses or in a paddock for many years. It will take patience and time for many of them to adjust. Being turned out with a companion will help them to make this transition.
