• Ex-racehorse rehoming
• Advice to owners of ex-racehorses
• Retraining clinics

Each year thousands of horses leave racing, some because they reach the natural end of their career, others through injury, old age or lack of ability. The Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Centre provides a secure, safe future for ex-racehorses. Some of these horses come to the Centre straight from training and others from post racing private homes. Those from private homes have often been purchased cheaply by well meaning but inexperienced individuals who are unable to handle or care for the horse.
TRC offer racehorse owners and trainers peace of mind that horses coming straight from racing are well looked after. Once a horse has been sold on it is very difficult to keep track of it. Any ex-racehorse that goes to the Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Centre remains their property for the rest of its lifetime. It will always be visited regularly and monitored by TRC volunteer field officers and if there is a problem it will return to the Centre.
To find out more about ex-racehorse rehoming, please look at Our Horses and Ex-Racehorse Rehoming Scheme. The Throroughbred Rehabilitation Centre are always looking for experienced, confident riders who can offer a loan home to an ex-racehorse giving them a new life and purpose.
The Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Centre is dedicated to the well-being of all ex-racehorses and will help with any problems or questions related to racehorse retraining regardless of whether you have a TRC horse or not. The trained staff can give advice by telephone and also offer schooling and ex-racehorse retraining clinics to address specific issues plus retirement and convalescence liveries.
There is always an urgent list of horses needing help and TRC need to raise close to £1500 per DAY to enable then to continue their work. So take a look at the TRC shop and check out the Christmas cards and other gift ideas.
