"To give racehorses A Life After Racing" once their racing career has come to an end".
HAVING been asked to write a book on the subject of retraining racehorses
REALISTICALLY trainers cannot be expected to keep horses for indefinite periods of time whilst they recover and many owners do not have facility to take their horses home; with both parties ultimately being in the game to have runners yet being aware of their responsibilities with regards to a horse’s welfare, what is the answer?
Rehoming Racehorses - A Life After Racing differs from other rehoming organisations in that we do not rehome any horse to persons we do have a connection with either directly or through friends, colleagues or associates. This better enables us to ensure horses go to the best possible homes with people who are genuinely passionate about the ex-racehorse.
There are two requirements:
- a donation will be made
- horses are to be signed over into the ownership of "A Life After Racing" so that its future welfare can be guaranteed.
IN DUE COURSE we will apply for charity status as it will enable us to have a stronger voice in respect of welfare issues in particular. But let's see how things go over the forthcoming months but certainly as present interest is running very high and we have homed some lovely horses. .
MEET "JUDGETHEMOMENT" WHO IS THE EQUINE AMBASSADOR FOR REHOMING RACEHORSES - A LIFE AFTER RACING
Formerly trained by Jane Chapple-Hyam Judgey had a spell at the British Racing School before he was passed to us for rehoming. .
We started his basic retaining and it soon became very clear that with his his good conformation and presence there was only one route for this little horse - the show ring.
So we were absolutely delighted when the successful showing rider and Judge, Claire Blackham, asked if she could home him.
In the capable hands of Team Langman Judgey is doing extremely well on the show circuit and winning at county level.
His success is testament to what an ex-racehorse can achieve when homed with an experienced person.
