Retired racehorse and rider in New Horizons adoption program

New Horizons, our Transition Horse Program, is a proud ASPCA Right Horse Industry Partner committed to making a difference in the lives of retired racehorses (aka off-the-track Thoroughbreds or OTTBs). At New Horizons, we are dedicated to their retraining and re-homing, offering these remarkable horses a second chance at a fulfilling life.

A 2017 peer-reviwed study by Weiss et al. found there to be more than 1.2 millions homes in the United States with the means and desire to adopt a horse, compared to an estimated 200,000 ‘unwanted’ horses at any one time. However, less than 1% of those potential owners were willing to adopt a horse with behavioral or medical issues.

That’s where we come in. By providing high-quality training to these retired racehorses, we significantly increase their chances of long-term adoption. Our trainers/program facilitators are experts in helping horses overcome behavioral issues using a gentle yet effective natural horsemanship approach.

In collaboration with ASPCA Right Horse Adoption Partners, including Win Place Home, we offer these horses in transition a second chance, enabling them to actively participate in our vocational horsemanship and equine-assisted programs as we prepare them for new careers. We recognize the shared journey of transition that both our retired racehorses and the at-risk groups we work with experience, and through this program, we aim to provide these horses with a second chance while contributing to the healing and empowerment of our participants.
