‘For the Welfare, Rehabilitation, Retraining and Rehoming of Retired Racehorses’
Established in 1991, The Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Centre was the UK’s first charity dedicated to ex-racehorse welfare, retraining, rehoming and protection for life.
By appropriately retraining and rehoming ex-racehorses from the Centre, based in Lancashire, the TRC is proud to provide a secure future for these horses for the rest of their lives. Horses are taken directly from racing and training or from post-racing homes and each horse is assessed individually by a team of professionals before beginning a bespoke retraining programme.
Once a horse achieves an appropriate level of retraining it is entered into the loan scheme. All horses remain under the ownership of the TRC, and are visited regularly in their loan homes by volunteer field officers. Over the years the TRC has rehomed hundreds of horses where they continue to lead appropriate post racing careers ranging from hacking and leisure riding to competitive disciplines.
