Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
We are a rescue operation involved in rehabilitating Thoroughbred racehorses that have been injured, can no longer race, or do not have the will to race at the track, but that are well enough and sound enough to be retrained for other disciplines. We also offer a full retirement facility.
The Thoroughbred Connection is a horse rescue operation located in southwestern Pennsylvania that is involved in rehabilitating Thoroughbred racehorses that have been injured, can no longer race, or do not have the will to race at the track. Many of these horses are well enough and sound enough to be placed and retrained for another discipline. Our goal is to adopt these horses into loving homes to avoid their fate at an auction or slaughterhouse. We also offer the option of a full retirement facility for those owners who wish for their horse to have a place to live out the life that they deserve in total retirement. The Thoroughbred Connection is here to fill in the gap for many deserving athletes who have given their all when asked in their performances at the racetrack and aid them in transitioning from a life of hard work to a life in a new discipline or retirement.
