The Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Centre (TRC) is the original horse charity dedicated to racehorse welfare, ex-racehorse retraining and ex-racehorse rehoming. The TRC specialises in the rehoming of racehorses to suitable loan homes.
What does the TRC do?
• Racehorse welfare
• Ex-racehorse retraining
• Ex-racehorse rehoming
• Advice to owners of ex-racehorses
• Retraining clinics
• Schooling livery
• Retirement livery
• Convalescence livery
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.
We 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 comes to the Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Centre remains our property for the rest of its lifetime. It will always be visited regularly and monitored by our 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
. We 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 is here to help with any problems or questions relation to racehorse retraining regardless of whether you have a TRC horse or not. Our trained staff can give advice by telephone and we 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 our help and we need to raise close to £1500 per DAY to enable us to continue our work. Please go to How You Can Help to find out how you can support us.
For any questions relation to the work we do in racehorse welfare, ex-racehorse retraining and ex-racehorse rehoming please contact us on 01524 812649.
