Help us to give a new life to ex-racehorses. They need feed, pasture, farrier and veterinary services while being trained for rehoming.
Every year over 100 retired standardbred racehorses are taken in for training and rehoming by a group of volunteers in Canterbury. Horses need hay, rugs, pasture, as well as a farrier and veterinary care during this time.
Often horses have to undergo rehabilitation before they can enter into a retraining program. Hundreds of standardbred horses do not have a chance to be rehomed due to a lack of resources. It is a sad reality for these beautiful horses, but we are committed to change it.
In the future, we want to create a quality rehoming facility that more horses can be taken in, but today the most urgent need is to raise funds for primary horse care. Donate and give ex-racehorses a new life!
