One of the most popular and recognizable horse breeds in the world, the Thoroughbred is a hot-blooded horse best known for its ability to excel in horseracing. The word “thoroughbred” is often used to refer to any purebred horse, but the term actually refers to the English breed developed in the 18th and 19 centuries. In terms of appearance, the Thoroughbred resembles its Arabian ancestors. Although used primarily for racing, the breed is also used for other disciplines including jumping, fox hunting, and barrel racing.
Our mission is to educate the public about the health, protection, preservation and alternative career options of Thoroughbreds when their racing or breeding careers are over. To save additional Thoroughbreds from slaughter and neglect by rescuing, caring for, rehabilitating and retraining horses for a non-racing career.
