With your support we can give thoroughbred ex-racehorses a new life and purpose

What We Do

 Each year thousands of horses leave racing, some because they reach the natural end of their career and others through injury or lack of ability.  

 

Established in 1991, The Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Centre was the UK's first charity dedicated to ex-racehorse welfare, re-training, re-homing and protection for life.

By appropriately re-training and re-homing ex-racehorses from our base in Lancashire the TRC is proud to provide a secure future for these horses for the rest of their lives. Horses are taken either directly from racing and training or from post-racing homes and each horse is assessed individually by a team of professionals before beginning a bespoke re-training programme.

Once a horse achieves an appropriate level of re-training it is entered onto our loan scheme.  All horses remain under the ownership of the TRC, and are visited regularly in their loan homes by our volunteer field officers.

To find out more about ex-racehorse rehoming, please take a look at Our Horses and Loan Scheme.

Over the years the TRC has re-homed hundreds of horses where they continue to lead appropriate post-racing careers ranging from hacking and leisure riding to competitive disciplines.

 

 

Although we receive a small amount of industry funding from Retraining of Racehorses, the majority of our income is sourced through public Donations, Friends of the TRC and through Gifts in Wills
