The potential adopter visits the training facility for Canter thoroughbreds that are available for adoption, meets with the trainer who assesses the adopter's horse knowledge and riding skills, and if comfortable, will monitor the adopter riding the horse to ensure a good match between horse and adopter. The adopter pays an adoption fee and signs a lifetime Bill of Sale to adopt the horse which prohibits the horse from racing or being sold at auction, and gives Canter first right of refusal if the adopter needs to re-home the horse in the future.

Public Charity

Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
CANTER's program is rehab, retrain, rehome Thoroughbred ex-racehorses. CANTER accepts non-competitive and injured thoroughbreds off racetracks in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. Most are young at 3 - 5 years old. CANTER transports them off racetracks into CANTER-approved rehab or training facilities for veterinary evaluation, treatment and farrier care. Rehabilitation time helps them adjust to farm life and living in a herd. Retraining begins for new careers and marketing results in adoptions by Canter-approved adopters in non-race homes.
CANTER provides life saving surgery to remove bone chips or repair leg fractures at Michigan State University, while providing an advanced education to MSU Vet students who assist with all aspects of arthroscopic surgery.
CANTER horses heal with several months rehab. A vet assessment determines when they can end rehab and begin retraining for new careers.
