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 publishing new stories every week, Off-Track Thoroughbreds presents a regular Q&A feature on horse health with renowned veterinarians at Rood & Riddle of Kentucky as well as a Q&A with a variety of fascinating people in the horse world.
Published since March 2010, Off-Track Thoroughbreds.com attracts upwards of 100,000 readers each month as it adds to the positive buzz about ex-racehorse Thoroughbreds. After closing briefly in January, 2015, the blog was re-started in February 2015 in partnership with the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation.
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.
