Every year thousands of racehorses leave the sport due to injury, old age or a lack of ability. But retirement from racing does not have to mean the end, many face an uncertain future they can sometimes be very difficult to re home and re train.
Hero's try to carefully match their horses to the right homes where their horses are kept on a loan scheme. They have help and support for life, they provide advice and help people with ex racehorses and have successfully re homed several hundred to a wide range of homes from companions to polo and competition horses.
Jack who is a retired ex racehorse came to me straight from racing last year and although he has needed to be retrained to become a riding horse he has been the sweetest kindest horse I have ever owned. They all deserve a second chance and without centers like this many wouldn't.
On 28th April 2018 I will be riding Jack 16 kilometers across Dartmoor to Haytor with Endurance GB South West. This is the first time either of us has ever taken part in anything like this but we are ready for the challenge.!!
