CONTACT THE TRAINERS
Over 96% of horses retiring from racing are capable of a second career, so there are plenty of horses out there looking for their next job. If you are considering an ex-racehorse, then feel free to ask for advice from one of our Retrainers here. They’ll be able to help with the matchmaking process, but ensure you are honest about your own abilities and what you require from your equine partner.
Be certain to ask yourself:
- Do you have the time, patience and financial means to care for a thoroughbred?
- Do you have the skills to retrain a thoroughbred?
- Is a thoroughbred likely to fulfil your equestrian needs in the given time (show jumping, riding club, eventing etc.)?
If you would prefer to go direct to a trainer to source your new horse, then feel free to contact the following on the numbers below. Be frank and open with the horse’s current owner/trainer about your plans for the horse and what you’d like to do with it. Check for any vices, physical problems, wind surgery etc. Always check on vaccinations, dentist and worming.
If at any stage you require guidance our retrainers and coaches are here to help or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
