This blog is dedicated to telling Success Stories of off-track Thoroughbreds who transition into next careers, or retirement.
The stories found here are intended to showcase the versatility and athletic aptitude of ex-racehorse Thoroughbreds in a multitude of next jobs, from trail horse to competitive eventer, and to convey their value to the world once their racing days are finished.
In addition to several fresh stories every week, Off-Track Thoroughbreds presents a quarterly Q&A feature on horse health with renowned veterinarians at Rood & Riddle of Kentucky in addition to a midweek feature called Reader’s Clubhouse. In it, readers have the opportunity to engage with one another on topics ranging from health and fitness (their own as well as their equine partner’s), as well as myriad other topics.
Ultimately, we wish to uncover and tell the positive stories of people and equines throughout the Thoroughbred world, demonstrating that ex-racehorses make great athletic competitors, wonderful partners, and loyal friends.
Information on this site is provided for reference only, and is not intended to advise any person or organization for the purpose of retraining, working with, or riding ex-racehorses, or any other breed. Always consult a horse professional (trainer, veterinarian, farrier) who can provide a proper recommendation on how to best handle your specific situation.
