Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Our mission is to provide off the track thoroughbreds with a soft landing after the end of their racing careers by giving them ample rehabilitation and retraining, transitioning them to a new career. We also work to educate and demonstrate to the public how versatile and quiet thoroughbreds are through clinics, shows, parades, community events, etc. We have a summer riding program geared towards underprivileged children in our area and also offer year round lessons. We adopt under a no racing/no auction/no breeding contract with right of first refusal and all stallions/colts are gelded upon arrival. We also host low-cost/free gelding clinics in order to combat over-breeding and have helped geld 23 horses to date. Thoroughbreds are known for their athleticism, heart and desire to please.
