Programs: Retired Thoroughbreds can be expensive to care for and many are injured when we receive them. We rehabilitate them at state of the art facilities and re-train the sound ones for second careers. They can be adopted for pleasure riding or showing or handicapped riding programs. Those that are not sound live out their lives with us.

Mission:
To stop the unnecessary slaughter of Thoroughbred racehorses when their racing careers end by providing meaningful retirement at state and county correctional facilities. At these pioneering farms, the TRF teaches the inmates a vocational training course in horse care and gives them the therapeutic benefit of working with horses.
